    Hey guys. I am a web developer starting up my own agency making websites for clients - a few are already willing to hire me. I have a rookie question.. I need to get hosting and a domain name for each indivdual site I make - am I able to sign up for new hosting plans and domain accounts under my affiliate links for Hostgator and Namecheap and make bonus referral commission for each website I build? Is this allowed and if so will my commissions count if I am signing up for them all on the same laptop/IP? I mean technically I am referring someone new once I transfer site ownership over.. Thoughts?

    Agreed with Nut-Nights above. If you want the commission then they can buy everything and then send you the cPanel login. That way there is no IP log in issues.
    However, I would just charge an extra $100 and offer first month hosting free and year of domain registration. People love free stuff and hate having to buy things after buying your service. You could make it a separate package as well. So a cheaper package doesn't include buying site and hosting. A more expensive package could include full set up and a year of SSL.

    Excellent idea on doing seperate packages. That's probably what I'll do. Thank you

    As @JetBlack101 said above, sell them as separate packages to your clients, or you can even buy reseller hosting, so every account is different, and even if they need access to their own cPanel, they can have it.
