    There are several ways (none of which I'll go into here) PM me and I'll give you a little crash course.

    URL forward can do this without hosting. Namecheap has this function for free.

    Or you can use 301 redirect page in hosting.

    search in google.

    What I've been doing is creating a index.php file with the following code.

    Code:
    <? Header("Location: http://www.google.com"); ?>
    Just change google.com to your affiliate link and upload the index.php file to your host domain directory.

    Not sure if this is the "correct" way to do it, but it works for me since I use a blank referrer script.

    It'd be too much of a waste doing it like that bro. Most Domain hosts have a "url forwarding" functionality.

    In your Host Gator control panel, there should be an option for them to set up Wordpress on your domain. Once that's done, you can use a free plugin like "Pretty Links" and set up an unlimited number of redirects from that domain without having to mess with code.

    I do this with several of my sites with good success.

    I used the domain redirect option on hostgator for my unique affiliate link but I asked some people to try it out and they all say it redirects them to the adcanadian sign up page, not the actual offer. What gives?

    wait a second

    The affiliate link I used to redirect was:
    http://www.adcanadian.com/r.asp?a=XXX&o=XXXX&si=
    and when I enter that link it takes me to:

    http://prizehouse.ca/landing.html?p=ff80808131a11a2d0131b8fdf836019d&pubId=XXXX&subPubId=XXXXXXXX..XXXXXXXXXX

    which has pubId and UID at the end

    so should I just be using the prizehouse link to redirect?
