Website hosting referrals not only can make you a great deal of money, but is probably one of the simplest affiliate programs to be a part of and make money with. This is by far one of the most lucrative Affiliate Niches in the industry and the payouts are pretty much unmatched by any other service offered.


How to Become a Website Hosting Affiliate

So let’s start with the basics.

First you will need a way to promote your affiliate links and banners provided by each Hosting Affiliate you sign up with. There are multiple ways to promote affiliate links and banners but for this portion of the guide we are going to concentrate on either owning or creating your own website in order to promote the affiliate links.

The second thing will be setting up your website if you don’t already own one. Type in what Domain name (Example: you would like to have in the box below to get started setting up your very own website completely free. Or you can head over to my Build a Website page to get step by step instructions on how to create your very own free website there.

(SiteRubix is a free platform for anyone without a website already set up. You can use any service that you want in order to set up your website, many which will be listed within this article. This decision is entirely up to you and the ones listed here are simply options for you to choose from if you decide to. There are countless hosting companies out there that offer great hosting options, choose what suits you best)


The third and most step will be signing up for Affiliate Hosting programs in order to get your links and banners that you will place on your website. Placing these links and banners is how you will be getting paid. let me explain this in more detail, each time someone visits your website and clicks a link or banner that has been placed on your website and then signs up for a hosting account you will get X amount of dollars for that specific affiliate hosting company. Easy enough right?
