    Hosting reseller programs are like a plague.

    I have reseller account with Surpass, but I don't resell much. ;)

    Hostgator is actually a good one. Any reason why you want to go elsewhere?

    Because for the 1st section of my course they use hostgator and for the second section which is to make there own blog i want them to use something else.

    How does reseller account work? Wouldn't you get less money since it's just like $8 a month? What if they don't stay after like 4 months or w/e. I want one that after like 1 month I get paid $100+. NO STARTLOGIC iv'e had bad experience

    Not sure I follow the first part of that.

    As for the second part, you're right. You would likely only make a few bucks per month per customer. But as with anything membership related, it's a smarter move to look at the big picture. If you can get hosting traffic (the tricky part) and hang in there for a few years, wouldn't you rather be making a few bucks per month x thousands of customers? Jmo.
    :D

    It's short term though. That's why I need a hosting that pays per referral alot of $$!

    This looks like a $50 flat payout on shared hosting. Not sure if these guys are resellers themselves though.

    Most hosting affiliate programs, I've come across are using the 60 day window for paying the referral fee. They feel that if someone last 60 days then they're most likely going to continue for at least awhile longer.

    Most are paying a flat referral fee of anywhere from $50-$90 for each customer you send to them. So they want to be a little more sure that someone would be staying longer and not refund early before they will pay out.

    Can't say I really blame them, tho. ;)

    My 3 centz anyway ...

    The post above telling you to "look at the big picture" is a solid point. Another is a peek into the world of a hosting company and see what their data shows....

    I own a hosting company... The statistics shake out like this.....

    50% of signups don't last a month
    20% of signups don't last thru 60 days
    The remaining 30% average over a year
    After one year (domain renewal) about 20% of the total are still there

    These numbers have been very consistent for over 10 years. And others who own hosting companies tell me that their number roughly match mine.

    Now, put yourself in a hoster's shoes for a minute.. Would you pay $100 instantly for a signup?

    There are two schools of thought... Charge a crapload and pay big for signups... Or have a low entry pricepoint and put draconian rules in place to keep the economics profitable.

    Very rarely do you see a host that will pay out immediatly UNLESS they're in the mid-price range with a long wait time for turnup (like a couple hours).... Find a host like this and you can have immediate payout w/o a 60 day rule because they've factored it into their price.

    Hey guys,
    I own Rytech Hosting and we have a great affiliate program. It starts 8% recurring and can get up to 30% recurring in the top tier. I advertised this in my sale thread here and have gotten quite a few PM's. Maybe this was what you were looking for :)
    Thanks

    What I need is another hosting affiliate like hostgator. When a customer pays let's say 7.99 for 2 months I am credited up to $125! I need hosting that pays like that. Instead of doing a one year contract doing a monthly one for shared!
