How to earn money with Hostgator Affiliate Program?

Affiliate marketing is the best way to make money from your blog. If you are a beginner in Affiliate marketing, then you can start from this post, earn money from Affiliate Marketing.

I have received my first blogging income from Dreamhost affiliate program. I was using the Dreamhost shared web hosting for my blog at the same time I was promoting the Dreamhost on my blog.

Earlier I have written about the Bluehost affiliate program, and Now I came up with Hostgator affiliate.

Hostgator is the second highest paying Affiliate program after WP Engine ($200/sign up). Hostgator will pay you a maximum $125 per sign up. The exciting thing about Hostgator affiliate program is that you will get more commission if you send more sign up per month.

So first, we will start with How to join Hostgator Affiliate program? 


Hostgator is very smart about the commission. They have implemented a unique technique(more sign up per month more commission for single sign up) for the sign-up rewards.

If you send 1-5 signups, then you will get $50 each sign-ups if you send 6-10 sign ups then you will get $75 for each sign-ups and so on. The amount of commission you get from the Hostgator affiliate is directly proportional to a number of sign-up you received per month.

If you look at the above calculation, you will understand that more you send referral more you will get rewarded by Hostgator. When you send them one sign up, then they check that is its valid entry or not then only you get paid so beware of the fraud.


The best thing which I like about the Hostgator Affiliate is Ads and Banners. You will get lots of stuff to promote the Hostgator hosting via email or on your blog. There are almost all types of banners available for promotion. You can pick up any banner suitable for your blog size space and promote it.

Just go to the Ads section and click on the search Ads. You will see all types of the banner. You can also filter it according to your need and pick up the best one. Get the code for your desired banners and place it wherever you want on your blog.
