GoDaddy Affiliate Program

Earn $$$ Recruiting Hosting Affiliates

When it comes to hosting, few brands have the clout that GoDaddy has in the industry. In the US, it’s practically a household name. It is well known for its controversial superbowl ads, and for other related marketing stunts – including hiring celebrities to do its publicity. GoDaddy was founded by Bob Parsons, an ex-marine who became known for his ‘edgy’ approach to marketing.

Parsons is no longer the CEO at GoDaddy, and the brand has had something of a facelift since his departure. It has also filed for its IPO and bought out rival host Media Temple. Its website has also had a massive overhaul; the confusing and cluttered layout has been replaced by a modern site that reflects GoDaddy’s new focus on marketing itself as a quality hosting provider.

Despite this, signing up as a GoDaddy affiliate is a little confusing. It’s a member of three separate affiliate networks: Commission Junction, ShareASale and TradeDoubler. It also has its own internal program, GoDaddy Direct, but this is no longer open to new signups.

Why Promote GoDaddy?

GoDaddy is a massive hosting company. In 2011, it was sold for $2.25 billion. That makes it a very well known name and a credible brand to work with. Regardless of who you’re marketing to, people who are familiar with the industry tend to know who GoDaddy is.

Any Drawbacks?

Information is scant, and you don’t really know what you’re signing up for initially. If you’re a new affiliate, you’ll need to go through the hassle of joining a network before you can get the full info on the deal.
