How to Make Money from Hostgator’s Affiliate Program

Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links, which means we may receive a commission if you click a link and purchase something that we recommended.

I have been an affiliate partner with Hostgator for more than four years now. Every month I make around $1200 from Hostgator’s affiliate program. If you are new to Hostgator, you should check out our Hostgator review.

Hostgator offers unlimited hosting with quality customer support, and being a user of Hostgator myself, I have no hesitation referring someone to Hostgator. Indeed, this is a win-win situation for me. I recommend one of the finest shared hosting services to people, and every successful referral makes a minimum of $50 for me.

Have you ever considered that instead of paying for hosting, you could make money from Hostgator’s hosting service?

Like most other hosting services, Hostgator offers an affiliate program.

The best thing about the Hostgator affiliate program is the fact that they pay according to the number of referrals received. For example, based on the number of people you refer to Hostgator, you will be earning as follows:

  • 9 * $75: $675
  • 11* $100: $1100
  • 21 *$125: $2625

So far, I have not faced any issues with Hostgator’s affiliate program on ImpactRadius, and I have been successfully running it for a year. At the time of the writing of this post, Hostgator has paid me a total of $12,000+, and another $4000 is unpaid. It has worked for me, and if you use the program properly, this hosting affiliate program will work for you, too.

Here are highlights of Hostgator Affiliate Program on ImpactRadius:

  • Payouts: Impact Radius gives you much more flexibility with frequency and date of payment. We will still process and lock transactions for payment on the 11th of the month but you now can get your payments on a specific day of the month OR when you hit a threshold.
  • Reporting: You will have much more detailed and insightful reporting on over 20 data points (ex: Invoice ID, Client ID, device, package type/term, domain, etc.). Additionally, you will have the ability to automate and download customized reports.
  • Tracking: Coupon codes and affiliate links will continue to be the main tracking methods but again with much more insights through improved reporting.
  • For custom coupon code you need to email Hostgator Affiliate team at [email protected]

  1. I’m about to start an affiliate program.

    Until today, I thought Bluehost was the best. I have been using them for close to a year and honestly no issues.

    But all the bad reviews about their customer service just kills me. Now I can’t recommend them to my audience.

    I’m happy Hostgator accepts affiliates without an account with them.

    Thanks for the post.

  2. Your writing skills are simple and great, even beginner can learn from your tutorials.

    I’m making already decent amount of money with my other blog and now I stated two more Blogs after seeing the Success of Ease Bedding Dot Com.

    I had my first sale with siteground for $50, despite of having very very little traffic, because blog is only two months old.

    So going to Join some more Hosting Companies; such as Hostgator, because, it was my first hosting, where my blog was started and I know they are good to promote them.

    Thanks.

      You can’t. However, you can give your affiliate links to your client and ask them to signup. The hosting company matches the payment details with affiliate links and thus decide when to validate or in-validate a sales.

    Hi Harsh,
    Thanks for this informative post. However, I am reading so many negative reviews about HostGator.com affiliate program. Sometimes they don’t pay for small no. Of referrals or sometimes they are delaying the payment.

    I am in a dilemma to choose which to promote. How’s your experience and what would you suggest regarding to their dealings.
    Kind regards.

      Back in the days, they had an in-house affiliate program which was pretty bad. However, now they are using ImpactRadius as a system and now the problem is gone.
