if essentially you want someone to goto your affiliate site and sign up. for example, if i am a partner for vacuum cleaners. i purchase a domain name such as theworldsbestvacuum why build a website with links to the affiliate sign up page when you can just have your website redirect to your affiliate and if you choose, mask the url so they still think they are on theworldsbestvacuum and then promote the heck out of your site without actually having a site. i'm new to all this, this is why i am asking, so legit answers are greatly appreciated and really would like some incite. thanks everyone!
