    OK, I am going to start selling web hosting and domain names for affiliate earnings commissions.

    HostGator and Commission Junction were the obvious choice due to high payout, but can I trust either of these companies?

    I want to promote a company who is going to pay me promptly and every time.

    Are GoDaddy, Domain.com, etc viable choices?

    Thoughts Please?

    The problem I've had with affiliates from host gator is 9 times out of 10 the person had a previous account so I was never paid out. My advice would be to register a reseller account, open SRS account, and get a license for WHMCS and sell your own packages at your own rates.

    Thank you for the information, but I don't know what SRS or WHMCS are.

    I tried googling and if I am understanding SRS is a messaging system and WHMCS is a business management service which would help automate my reseller business?

    Anyway, it is definitely an interesting proposition, but honestly I don't know if I'm up to the task of creating such a business at the moment.

    Thank you though, it is a good idea.

    Well, I think I am going to go with GoDaddy-

    1. I am familiar with them.
    2. They are going to pay me... I don't need to be stressed.

    If anyone else has input, please let me know, but for now I will be working with GoDaddy Affiliate.
