    just letting you know
    they only pay out after you stick around for 60 days

    so it takes ~90 days for you to get paid after signup

    Having the same address is certainly a red flag, and the fact that he won't sign up any other customers might make them look closely before approving the payout.

    You might be ahead to find an existing affiliate who is selling enough sign-ups per month to be at a higher commission level and see if they will rebate you some of the commission. Incentives are against the affiliate terms, but Hostgator isn't likely to find out if it's a private unadvertised arrangement.
