In 2023, almost all the hosting companies will offer affiliate earning possibilities. Especially if your blog teaches about how to start a blog, how to start a website, or around Blogging and hosting niche, a Web-hosting affiliate can always help to earn more than what you are earning from AdSense or any Ad network.

How web hosting Affiliate Programs are useful:

1. High commission payout:

Affiliate Income Proof for Hosting Affiliate

Hosting Affiliate Programs offer insane commissions to those who bring in new sales; for example, HostGator pays a minimum of 50$ commission to the publisher for each sale; they have an inverted pyramid type system where the more sales you make in a month, the higher the commission for each sale, it can go up to 125$ a sale if you get 21+ sales a month.

You might think, “How can these companies afford to pay these insane commissions?” This is exactly what I thought when I first heard about these commissions; then I went through some literature on these hosting companies, and their business plan was pretty good.

They feel that if someone registers for a new hosting plan with them, these companies are confident in their services and that they can hold on to the customer for years to come. Hence they make much more than 50$ from the sale, over time.

2. Increase in Popularity of Building Websites

There is high interest in designing websites and building websites these days than there was, say 10 years ago.

So the market is growing, all you need to do is,  attract this market to buy through you. This can be done via SEO, using Coupons (4th Point) as well as promoting through paid channels or social networks.

With many people wanting to build websites, they are going to need hosting, so there is a huge market of people arising every day who want to buy hosting.

If you have corresponding articles and information, there is no doubt that you will bag some commissions each month.

3. Suggested Niche for Webhosting Affiliates:

Do not think you need to have a Domain like HostingReviews.com or WPHostingDiscounts.com and write only about Hosting topics to earn commissions.  are some other niches that can get you good results as well.  are some of them –

  • Technology
  • How to Create/Design Website
  • Coding Tips

These are just some of the Topics, which have a good potential to get commissions.

You will not believe it when I say that I got my first two commissions from HostGator through a Personal Blog and another from an Education Blog.

Even today I am dumbfounded how that happened, but as I said your niche does not have to about Hosting. The central point is that whatever your niche is, you earn a fixed commission of a good number of dollars, unlike Setupad or AdSense, which depend mainly on your niche and pay according to the keywords.

4. Hosting Discount Coupons:

Most of the Hosting Affiliates provide custom coupon codes for you, if someone buys a hosting plan using those coupons, then you can get the commission.

If it’s possible, try to make your codes very simple and easy to remember, and market these codes on your blog, stating the discounts they offer.If you use your coupons well, you can earn a lot more than with any CPC or CPM platform. Coupons give an incentive for users to go and buy a hosting plan for their website.

With the Hosting Companies providing so many opportunities, I think if you just do a little hard work you can surely earn a lot from Hosting Commissions.

Make use of this high-paying type of Affiliate, I am sure that you will not regret it.

Now, there are many Web-hosting companies that you can pick and join their affiliate programs. In most of cases, joining Web host affiliate program is free, and I will also share how you can find an affiliate program of any Web-hosting. You can also use Affiliate marketplaces like Impact,  CJ to find many high-paying Web hosting aff programs. But, I prefer joining directly to any hosting affiliate.

Though, don’t try to jump into every hosting affiliate network. Pick the affiliate of hosting that you are using and you are confident of. For example, at ShoutMeLoud you will notice under suggested Web-hosting, there are three programs and all of them is personally used by the team here at SML. So, it’s always wise advice to suggest something that you are sure of and confident about.

You can always use Google to find if any hosting company offers the affiliate program or not. For example HostGator Affiliate program or use the search term : Site: a2hosting.com affiliate program. (Hosting website URL + Affiliate)

This is also one of the unique Webhosting affiliate programs that offer a recurring affiliate commission.

In 2022, Bluehost moved it’s affiliate program from In-house to Impact.com, which is an affiliate marketplace.

Note: Bluehost offers Bluehost US and Bluehost India affiliate programs. Both are managed via Impact.com, and you should use a geo-localization service like Geni.us to redirect users to the correct Bluehost store based on their location.

3. Nestify Hosting Affiliate Program

  • Save

Nestify is not as popular as other hosting affiliate programs mentioned here, but that also is an opportunity. Nestify has been around for years, and they offer high-quality hosting at a dirt cheap price. They could be positioned as SiteGround or Kinsta alternative, and they offer a lucrative affiliate program.

I find their quality of hosting to be good, but their marketing materials are not as good. This is where you have an opportunity to market this product and make a handsome commission.

Here are a few details on the Nestify hosting Affiliate program –

  • $50 – $150/sale
  • The minimum payout is $200
  • In-house managed affiliate program
  • Coupon support – Yes
  • Payout via PayPal

How to promote Webhosting Affiliates:

Like any other hosting affiliate program, you can promote any Hosting Affiliate. Though, here are some tips for newbies to promote any of your Web-Hosting Aff programs:

1. Write Hosting review:

Write a review of hosting that you would like to promote. Give complete details and technical specifications and some strong reasons why you recommend it. Make sure, that none of the words should be fake marketing stunts but should be a genuine and personalized review. This will help, readers to pick a genuine Web-hosting company. Ex: HostGator review

2. Hosting Discount coupon:

All the hosting company offers discount coupon to increase their sale. You can keep an eye on the latest hosting discount coupons, by setting up Google alert or following those blogs or sites, which share the latest hosting discount coupon. Whenever you find any discount offer, that is hard to resist., share it with your readers via blog Post, Email newsletter, Fan page or Twitter. If the discount period is longer, you can add a banner in a prominent space on your Website.

3. Custom Discount coupon:

Many Hosting companies offer their affiliates to create a custom hosting discount coupon.

This will help them to increase their sales. For example, here at ShoutMeLoud, we have a custom coupon “SHOUTMELOUD30” for HostGator hosting, which offers a flat 30%  discount.

Similarly, you can create your own custom coupon. If you are using your blog to promote it, keep the coupon code close to your brand name.

4. Put Hosting Banner:

You can find affiliate Banner promotion material under your affiliate panel. Or you can also create custom ad banner for those hosting affiliate and put it on your site. Custom but attractive banner performs way better than general and common ad banners. (Ad blindness)

5. Create Hosting Comparison sites:

When I shop for any Web host for me, I usually read lots of review for a different hosting company account. Hosting comparison sites are very popular to pick the best host. Though it’s really hard to find the genuine one, but if you can create an honest site with a great review, comparison, and discount coupons, a proper strategy can wonder to your make money arsenal.

If the affiliate market is something that interests you, Web-hosting Affiliate is something that you should probably look into right away.  Don’t forget to subscribe to our email newsletter to get an update on our news guide on starting your own domain business.

    Hi Harsh,
    I am having affiliate partnership with 10-15 major web hosting company. Till now I have received around 15K as commission and most of the commission received from HostingRaja. But, do suspect that their affiliate link do not track affiliate transaction properly. Bcoz for my commission, I had to do long fight with them and after manual adjustment they remitted the commission.

    In this regards I wanted to kknow , that Is this happens with other Hosting companies too ? ( Meaning, their Tracking link also do not work )

  13. Ariel

    Hi, I see most sites with hosting affiliate links use a redirecting page to send the visitor to the the hosting site. I wonder if this practice is a must to do SEO-wise or not. What do you think? have you tested the two options? (with a redirecting page or using the affiliate link directly)

  14. Meenu Malhotra

    Nice article to monetise your blog, I have incorporated Viglink and other plugins. Will try affiliates too.

  15. gautam nagraj

    Hello Sir
    Which HostGator Affiliates you are using
    is it affiliates.hostgator.in or hostgator.com(impactradious) ?

  16. Amarjeet kumar

    Dear Harsh,
    Currently i am getting 65$ from bluehost. As you are a reliable Partner to Bluehost Hosting, Are you getting more or same 65$. If more than How can i get more than 65$ commission from bluehost (In terms of Total number of sale.).

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      Hey Amarjeet,

      If you want to increase your commission, you can contact your Bluehost affiliate manager and then explain to him why are you a fit candidate for increasing the affiliate payout. Answer questions like:How much reader base you have? What is your conversion ratio or How many sales do you expect to make in a month. If they find you fit, they will increase your commission.

  17. Amarjeet

    Dear Harsh,
    I applied for bluehost affiliated programmer and got approval.
    I found that a got referral code and links provided by bluehost is for 5.95$ per month for my account, but when i checked you website & few else i found 2.95$ mention on Blue host banner.
    Please update me why this difference is there

    1. Harsh Agrawal

      This exclusive rate is for top affiliates. You need to start sending them more than 50+ referral a month to get discounted rate for your link.

  18. Mahbub Khan

    It’s the 1st post I read from my search. from your article, it seems a bit difficult to promote any hosting company without established blog (that ever the niche is). you cover a bit of review post. but I did not find any paid marketing method or social media marketing. will they profitable?

  19. Anand

    Hi Harsh
    Will I get 65$ commission even for a domain purchase on bluehost?

  20. Swati

    A good post . Do these hosting programme give recurring income when the person who booked hosting with our affiliate link renews his hosting service?
