    Hi there guys!
    I'm an affiliate now for hostgator but i have some questions....
    They say that they give you from $50 up to $125 per sale.... is this possible?
    I've made a website teaching people how to buy hosting accounts for $0.01 for the first month, the site is http://freesite.newdetails.info/
    So basically i teach them to make accounts for just 1 cent...but if someone makes it - do i get 50$ ??? there has to be a catch...which is.... ??

    CJ have a hostgator offer, which pays $100/lead, instead of the hostgator's $50/lead, this is because CJ get $125/lead from hostgator. Remove your adsense banners, you don't want your visitors to leave, you want them to convert, you should also add in some more links and on the image add this:
    Code:
    <img src="image.png" border="0">
    That'll get rid of the blue border.

    don't know what it is, but it sounds painful

    Wow that really sucks.. I was really interested in promoting hostgator cause of the high payout, but it did seem kinda too good to be true..

    Have you heard of fatcow.. they pay $110 per referral.. but I don't think they have cPanel.

    You want bigger commisions?

    Here are your mistakes so far as I can see:

    1. Yes, you do say that you can give them almost free hosting but you haven't told them that this is a really good deal and that the opportunity to sign up with such a *cough* reputable hosting provider such as hostgator shouldn't be missed. There are many places that provide hosting for less than a cent dude.

    2. I can also tell from your copy that English is probably not your fist language. Nothing wrong with your grammar, it just reads kinda stiff. If traffic to this website is not from a country that has English as its first language, it might be a problem.

    3. If you are making less than $10/day with adsense I would move it to the very bottom

    4. That green box at the top is too big for the text.

    5. Get a new domain, .com preferrably or the domain extension of your native country if the traffic is from your country

    This may seem like a silly question, but I have had one too many people overlook this in the past with the HostGator affiliate program.

    Were all of those 30 white hat commissions 60 days ago?

    Because if not, that's probably why you have not been paid. I have been an affiliate with them about 2 years now and never had a commission missed.

    Also, the person's account has to still be active and paid for you to get the commission.

    They would lose their tale, if they did not have those two stipulations... Many of their users pay by the month.

    For further details on the above you can go here:

    The first post on my blog:

    Basically you can force people to signup under your affiliate if you want them to take part. :)

    it's basically: "hey, you want to earn money, you get a free website to do so, but you need to use this hosting." Bam, you get paid affiliate fees.

    Take your head out of your ass. Your probably promoting the affiliate as a $0.01 host, and then when the people you refer gets their 2nd bill they run, giving you $0.

    While I wouldn't have put it as harshly, I agree. You have to also realize that Hostgator allows for Paypal signups, which depending on your targeted country and age group, may not pay that second month off if they haven't earned billions of dollars the first month.

    I don't really advertise them, but I do get a sale or two each month from just a simple blog role type link. They have always paid and I have never had one listed as not paid or fraud.
