    I am doing it but not advertising the offers. I was having kind of good inflow of targeted users for these offers few weeks back but suddenly, traffic has decreased so no new sales for past weeks.

    But, yes, as per your question, I am into it!

    I've heard a few bad stories from godaddy.

    I've personally never worked with hosting companies. I'd say they're good to promote if you have followers that are interested in Internet Marketing.


    Perhaps placing it in a tutorial on how to make money in your specific field.

    I am working with Justhost, hostgator, iPage and godaddy. Got payments from all of them (ipage is a bit slow in processing first payment, I guess it was 60/90 days after the sales that they pay you).

    Damn right!!

    If you have user base in niche then it is easy to promote. Doing SEM for promotion is pretty costly for webhosting niche.

    I have done some promoting in the hosting niche. I've worked with Hostgator, Dreamhost, and now WebFaction. I personally was using hostgator for awhile and although they do pay on-time and fairly well, I wanted a more recurring income from the hosting services. Also, I felt like the speed on their hosting boxes weren't as good as they used to be which I then did a lot of research and ended up switching to webfaction. I'm currently still working on promoting webfaction (mostly offline methods) and I will be happy to send you a review of how their affiliate program is.

    It is a very saturated market though.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Thanks Buds,

    Yeah..i spoke with HostG before i posted this thread. Problem with them is that you have to sign up 2 or more per month with no carry-over. That means if 1 mth, you happen to only sign up 1...you are SOL. (not to mention that they have grown so big----customer service is lacking and slow).

    Not sure if the others mentioned work like this as well.

    Also, check Blue-host----they are offering affiliate action too.

    Yeah. The bluehost program seems to be pretty good. But, the biggest factor here is if you are looking for a one-time payment on the referral or if you are looking for a residual income from each referral. Which of those would you prefer?
    The only problem with the residual income is that you don't make as much instantly, but if the user stays with that company for awhile, it can be more of a benefit than other programs.

    I now only recommend services I have used and am satisfied with and that typically helps my case and promotion as well. So, when I am talking to people about creating a basic website and how to set one up, they get more swayed by my opinion of the company since I am currently using them. It usually ends up in a referral.
