Hostgator Affiliate program:
Hostgator affiliate program is open for all and anyone can sign up with them without requirement to have a hosting account with them. Though my advice would be, it’s better to use something before you recommend it to anyone.
How to get started with Hostgator Affiliate program:
Before we get into details about Hostgator Affiliate program, here is a quick income proof from Hostgator aff. prog.
Signing up with their aff. program is easy and anyone can join them right away. Go toand click on affiliate and sign up for a free aff. account.
Once you signed up with them, go to your account information and update your payment settings.
You can get paid by Check or PayPal. For easy and quick payment, I would suggest use Paypal.
Custom coupon code:
Hostgator also allows you to create custom coupon code, using it you can offer 25% off or $9.94 coupon code. Though never use you own coupon code for signing up. These coupon code will be very useful in branding. For example, I have created coupon codes “Shoutmeloud” “shoutmeloud25” “Wphostingdiscount” and so on. This way, I can offer different customized coupon for my different websites. Be wise, when you create a coupon code, as limit for custom coupon code is 10.
Unlimited Affiliate income:
The best thing which I like about Hostgator affiliate program is they pay you according to number of referrals. For example if you refer 9 people, you will be earning
- 9 * $75: $675
- 11* $100: $1100
- 21 *$125: $2625
So more referrals you will have, you will be making more money out of it. I usually target 11+ referral every month.
Some issues with Hostgator aff:
Though many users have reported about unpaid payment from their aff. program and many referrals shows as inactive, or fraud.
Hostgator pays only for active account and not for those account who signed up but never uploaded website on their server. More over, a user can sign up for only one hosting account, if they sign up for another hosting account, the referral is voided.
So far, I have not faced any issue with Hostgator affiliate program and successfully running it from an year. At the time of writing, they have made total payment of $12000+ to me and more than $4000 is unpaid. It worked for me and if you do it in the right manner, this hosting affiliate program will work for you too.
