Hostgator Affiliate Program- Earn Up To $125 Per Referral

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 the 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 of $125 per sign-up. The exciting thing about the Hostgator affiliate program is that you will get more commission if you send more sign up per month.

Sign up

Step 1- You can start here Hostgator affiliate sign up. Fill all the Account information (please make sure that you are using the correct information, don’t spam).

Step 5- The final step is to accept the terms and review your entire application.

Once you complete all the process, you will get the confirmation email to your email address. Please confirm the account to complete the sign-up process.

Once you verify your email address, you can now access your Hostgator affiliate dashboard. The Hostgator team will review your application and will get back to you. Once your application is approved, you will get an email, and you can promote the HostGator banner on your website.

Hostgator Affiliate Commission

Hostgator is very smart about the commission. They have implemented a unique technique(more sign up per month more commission for a 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 the more you send referrals 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.

Ads and Banners

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 banners. You can also filter it according to your need and pick up the best one. Get the code for your desired banners and place them wherever you want on your blog.
