    I want to start a website with bluehost.. but I need the discount (from the usual price of $6.95 to $3.95).

    And in order to get the discount, I have to click on affiliate's links which they will earn commission. So I thought of joining Bluehost affiliate then buying a plan using my own affiliate link.. but I wonder is it legal and ok?
    I am afraid they might terminate my affiliate account and also my hosting plan - wasting the $$$ I've paid.

    I've checked their affiliate policy and they didn't state anything about buying plans using own affiliate links: hxxps://www.bluehost.com/affiliate_terms.html

    What do you all thinking? Can I buy the hosting plan with my own affiliate link?

    Use somebody else affiliate link, then ask for 50% of what they earn, I'm sure you can find some people on here more then willing to do this.

    You should speak to an operator and ask for it. Like in the other topic I stated I know my host very good, I got affiliate with it and I buy hosting through my affiliate if I don't get it free.

    It's ok, guys.

    Anyway, to those who still wants the bluehost discount but doesn't want to buy from any affiliate links (cos' they will earn comission)...
    Here's the direct link:
    www.bluehost.com/promo



    I got it after seeking help with their customer service. I have to say Bluehost has such GOOD customer service! I pop a question and requested a ticket.. within less than few minutes, they responded. Unfortunately, the help's response didn't really answer my question. I e-mailed them and within an hour or so, they replied. Such great service! No, I'm not being sarcastic.. I really-really admire their service!

    actually maybe you can give a try with sharkspace
    im considering them
    support is so fast
    hostgator took me 1.5 days
    shinjiru took bout a day
    bluehost took more than a day
    sharkspace took just 20 mins max

    @kc808: if i need an extra host ill hit u up

    btw, u can buy thru your own affiliate link for bluehost
    n im buying using a monthly package
    give the host a try first
    if they're not good enuf den i can cancel anytime and split
    mayb hostgator or mayb bluehost
