What Hosting Program Do You Promote?

Discussion in 'Affiliate Programs' started by marcusio, Jul 29, 2010.

    Right,

    So I have an opportunity to get a few sales for hosting a week for the next year or so. What I am asking here is what hosting company should I register with and use their affiliate program?

    Normally I just go with the most professional service that pays well, which in this case would be hostgator, but I have heard that they often scrub sales which is why they offer such huge commissions because they have no intention of actually paying out on them

    Basically what I am asking is what Hosting Program do you promote? How much % do you get and have you ever had any problems with them?

    Hostgator is the first hosting affiliate I ever run
    The payment is solid
    But they doest't allow self-promotion, so far as I know

    But there are other good afiliates in the top hosting services, like justhost or bluehost.

    Omnis.com have a really good affiliate program. Give them a try. They're not as famous as Hostgator, but you'll never find a bad opinion about them. Their affiliate program is quite professional.

    Hostgator most definitely pays, I can scan a check to prove it.

    Bluehost, hostmonster, fastdomain
    They are one company. Each of them pays $65 per sale, but you need to get over $100 ($130) to get the first check. You can NOT use your link to purchase an account, and be careful because they approve only one sale commission per one credit card.
    I sold five accounts (2xBH 3xHM) and they payed me.

    Well this is all good to know, guess I must have just seen a few bad examples. So everyone agrees that hostgator is the one to go for?

    What percentage do they pay? I'll pay more and my network blows theirs away.
