In a previous post, I wrote about making money online using DreamHost’s affiliate program, and I promised that I would follow up with a post demonstrating how you can promote the DreamHost affiliate program. I have chosen to share this information with you because DreamHost is an affiliate program that has worked for me, and I have made a good passive income with it. This means that you can, too!
To get started,if you have not joined DreamHost’s affiliate program, you can join now for free.
For the purpose of the remainder of this tutorial, we’ll assume that you have an affiliate account with DreamHost and that you have used your credentials to log in to the DreamHost panel.

How to Get Dreamhost Promo code for your blog readers
On 1st March 2016, Dreamhost made major changes into their Affiliate program & now you cannot generate custom coupon for your blog readers. Though you can still offer maximum possible $50 discount to your readers which is available for every Dreamhost Affiliate.
Here is new Dreamhost Commission Slab:
If you don’t’ offer any discount, you can still earn $97/Sale which is pretty high compared to other shared hosting in the market. Once you are inside the Dreamhost dashboard, click on Billing & account > Affiliates.
On the page click on View available promotion & here you will find the unique link that will offer $50 or $25 discount to your readers.
As the page read:
To help your website visitors sign up at DreamHost, we’ve created two promotional pages that will give a $25 or $50 one-time discount on shared hosting to the people you sign up.
The only downside is if you choose to link to these two landing pages, the $25 or $50 discount comes out of your $97 one-time rewards payment. But hey, that’s only fair! It’s basically a way for you to share some of your rewards with the people you are referring.
DreamHost gives you a maximum of $97 commission on every sale. So for example, if you are giving a discount of $50 for every sale, you will be making $47 on each sale. Again, I generally suggest creating a promo code for a $50 discount.
Linking the promo code to your affiliate link:
When you log in to your DreamHost panel and click on the rewards tab, you will see your affiliate link.
In this case, my affiliate link is http://www.dreamhost.com/r.cgi?467570
You can click on promotional section as shown above to get your affiliate link with promo code.Now all I need to do is add my promo code after my affiliate link. So, for example, to link my SML50 promo code, which offers a $50 discount, I will use this link:
So now, whenever a user signs up using this promo code, he will get a $50 discount on hosting.
In short, all you need to do is to simply add your promo code after your affiliate link.

Users can receive money via Paypal or check. I will say, however, that I have received my checks within the appropriate time-frame each month. (If you become a premium affiliate as I am, you can request your payments every month.)
