HostMonster Affiliate Program

Earn $$$ Recruiting Hosting Affiliates

HostMonster markets its web hosting on the back of its US-based support department – something that other hosting companies can’t offer. Since 1996, the company has been offering hosting to small businesses and personal users, and it puts honesty and customer satisfaction at the centre of its service.

Once you look at the HostMonster plans, you’ll recognise the general themes as being typical of the Endurance International Group. There’s a single plan, oodles of unlimited resources, plus a portfolio of marketing credits to help with promotion. Like most EIG brands, HostMonster provides all customers with cPanel as standard, and limits its hosting to Linux operating systems only. VPS hosting is available on top of shared plans.

The HostMonster affiliate program has a very similar commission structure to that of JustHost and related companies. You get one flat referral fee per signup, with no bonuses for high volume sales. The content on the affiliate site is brief and generic, so there’s not a lot to make this plan stand out.

In terms of payouts, HostMonster uses Mass Pay, a PayPal service. That means that you’ll receive all of your referral commission without any fees being deducted. It’s wise to open a US dollar PayPal balance if you don’t already have one, since that will avoid losing money in commission fees.

Why Promote HostMonster?

The HostMonster program may be no-frills, but it’s a known name in hosting and part of a very large group.

Any Drawbacks?

Details are hard to come by, and if you don’t use PayPal, there’s an additional 30 day delay to be paid by check.
