    Dear Harsh,

    Are you sure that we can sign up using tradedoubler? Because when I checked in Godaddy affiliate page, they have listed CJ and Zanox as their affiliate network partners. But I couldn’t find Godaddy affiliate program in Zanox and I am currently facing some issue with CJ.

        Thank you Harsh, for prompt replay.

        But I am having a hard time with CJ.
        CJ is taking a lot of time to load. Most of the time I can not access any other page except the homepage. I tried different browsers, but no luck. Maybe something to do with my connection. But the homepage is loading fast though.

    Hi Harsh,
    I have joined Godaddy affiliate via CJ. As I’ve seen everywhere and in their program terms too that they pay $105 USD affiliate commission new purchaser 12 month hosting plan.

    But they are paying me just 40% of the sale amount. I contacted their support team, and this is what they replied :

    “Thank you for contacting GoDaddy Affiliate support. As with most advertisers in CJ we have several different program terms available. Based on things such as the affiliates site, the types of customers they refer, and the types of orders they generate will determine how the affiliates account is approved for certain program terms. Our terms were updated on February 4, 2015. At this time the term is what you have been approved for. We would be happy to review your transactions after 3 or 4 months and review your account.

    • 40% revenue share for new customer orders (first-time purchasers)
    • 10% revenue share for existing customer orders ”

    Please suggest me what’s the problem, and what to react about this email.

      I need to remove the complete ShareAsale part, and update with Tradedoubler process once my application is approved on their. it’s been 3 days and they haven’t accepted the application.

    Is it any topic to write about? I think everyone who has a facebook or Google account, He know how to signup to any website including Godaddy and so on. We hope to get useful and interesting articles from SML, not like this one. Hope you Guys understand and If I hart you by writing these line, Please forgive me. I wrote this because, I am a regular reader of SML and like other days, Today, I have come to check out new and interesting articles

      Thanks for your honest feedback and I understand your sentiment. When I write these kind of basic articles, I had to think twice before publishing. I know regular reader of ShoutMeLoud expect an article with more insight and not such basic How-to, but let me tell you something. Most of the eMails which I get from existing or new readers, they need such basic step by step How-to, and that’s why I integrate such article once in a while. I will lee your feedback in mind, and will surely ensure that you also get what you expect to read at ShoutMeLoud. Thanks for being around!

    Hi Harsh,

    There are forms W-8BEN and W-8ECI . Which needs to be completed for getting payed by godaddy Direct Affiliate. Which form do Indian residents should use.

    Please advise. Its very urgent.

    Thank you

    • says

      Whatever you do, first consult with a person who knows about foreign and Indian taxation etc.
      The procedures adopted by Google and Paypal are rather simple.

      Anyways, thank you Harsh for this great article. It is very informative.

      My advice to everybody here is to try different affiliate programs (the branded one) and find out more about their services and procedures.

      Money flows in when we (bloggers) give good service to our viewers. We cannot treat them like customers. I am managing a technical blog and whoever visits my site expect some help in terms of code or a solution. I cannot lure them to buy a product.

      Initially I had too many ads on my blog, after reading few articles here and other blogs, I have changed settings and instead of reducing the number of ads, I have placed them in a systematic way.

      Finally its up to the user to choose what they want to do.

      Another point I would like to add. If you have Google ad’s on your web pages, then make the ad’s are relevant or it matches with the contents you website is providing. Else, it is meaningless and occupies space, for no good reason.

  12. girish anand says

    how much you earn if some one buy a domain from your affiliate link?
    and some time they provide coupons and they seem to be less then any affiliate link..then how to survive with this?
    and can we create are own coupon code to sell domains with their affiliate program

  13. khalid says

    Hi Harsh
    My blog is share market related blog and I have around 440 readers and PR4 rank. What do you thin, should I join this Godaddy Affiliate Program ?
    Please answer.

    • says

      Khalid you should always select affiliate program based on your audience and niche. According to me If I would be at your place, Godaddy should not be my destination. Instead you could have gone for something like Some Ebook which talks more about Share market or may be some software which helps share market users.

    Wow!! Thanks for the instruction to “Sign Up” over Godaddy Affiliate Program.. I was actually think of joining the affiliate program of Godday. Do they give Handsome commission…

    People will surely buy the products of the Godaddy because it is the most trusted brand…

    • says

      Thanks Arijit for your comment. Godaddy affiliate program is nice as it’s a reputed brand and you can quickly make some good money via selling domain name or hosting. Though I would hardly recommend, promote domain name and don’t promote hosting via Godaddy as many of my WordPress client had some bad experience with them.
      Do remember its my personal opinion based on experience….. :)

      • Arijit Das says

        Ya!! I too faced the same problem with the Godaddy Hosting Service…

        I feel it’s very slow but they have huge varieties of domain names available at very effective price..

        Thanks for your personal opinion.. And i too agree with it!! :D
