    How do I market my web hosting affiliate links, my goal is to earn just two thousand dollars a month to enable me pay my bills. And if possible, also recommend me the best web hosting affiliates that pay without issues.

    Have a look at GoDaddy, HostGator, Bluehost and Digital Ocean. They all have some great affiliate programs. How you promote them, I can't help with. But have a look in the "Making Money" section..

    Just wanted to tell everybody to avoid hostgator affiliate. Referred two of my friends through my ref link long time ago, and nothing showed up in my aff account. This is how they make business.

    Don't waste your time. There is a reason they are banned here....They don't pay out on 90% of your legitimate signups. just google them and add scam.

    I'm looking the answer for the exact same question. I have found that FatCow might be worth a try as well as BlueHost.

    I saw some guy saying, that they are all owned by single person anyway, so whether you chose you will end up by the same company, I don't what's true about that though.

    Hostgator is the worst webhosting affiliate program. During 2 years period, on a 15-20k alexa website, 30-50k visitors monthly, we earned $200 so far. I can't count "pending", "invalid" commissions in my affiliate dashboard. Run from it! People tested hg, they gave their friends their affiliate links to make a purchase, and never get their commissions... Maybe it's just me, and few other people, but I'm out.

    It's owned by EIG, a billion dollar publicly company (paste this after normal wikipedia > /wiki/Endurance_International_Group)
    They have a reputation for overstuffing servers, cutting customer support, and generally being a poor supplier, steer clear of any of their brands (check their wiki page before you sign up for any host)

    Have heard good things about Inmotion and green geeks, personally I'm on WpEngine.. Would also love to try WebSynthesis (althou expensive) for their tens of marketing tools that's included.

    Well, it doesn't make sense why HG is not paying out while the other site does. When they are owned by one corporation.

    Be very careful when choosing an affiliate, I was on hosting24 and I have like $200 pending..after 30days my affiliate money was removed, emailed the support, they said there wasn't any on my account.

    You should also check out the % they give per sale, it's a pain to wait for $100 when you are earning $3 per sale.

    IMO, i would suggest a rev share program, and choose a hosting with a reputed account here. search the hosting section
