I am glad you wrote this post on web hosting. I use to provide customer suport from a small web hosting company. I tell you the things people ask in relation to web hosting.
I know customer support is key in any online business and should never be put off thats for sure.
I, myself now try to provide a good outlet for people to contact me as I sell hosting myself now.
There are many great markets for peopleto dive into and make great profits from. Just choose the best one that fitsypur personality as I did.
Bruno Augers last blog post..Internet Marketing with Affiliate Landmines
it is sure to have a well ülaced hosting and I can only recommend one hoster which is well placed in this market and feedung you with everything you need, KioskWebhosting.com you have this oster especially for the MARKETING eg. as affiliate, as websales, as blog hosting etc.
As far as I know you are using this one as well.
This is a great idea. I can see where it would be profitable with some really reliable hosting sources.
thanks for the tip!
I am so glad to talked about this topic as I am really thinking right now in promoting Web Hosting, so I needed motivation and here you are motivating me to start 😀
Thanks so Much for these valuable Posts
pls excuse typing errors which do not influence the aim of the writer.
Thanks to you end excuses to the readers.
I’m brand new to your site and internet marketing. This is a good idea.
i don’t even have a blog yet. but i would advertise from what I see hostgator or bluehost i think.
any ideas on how to get started would be welcomed.
Great example for an affiliate product to become a super affiliate for. Recommending hosting solutions to others is probably one of the easier products I have made money from considering everyone needs it and because I was able to shared my own personal experience about the hosting company I was recommnending.
I strongly believe that it is more to do with a successful website which can pre sell visitors than just making a nice looking dead website from any good hosts.
Everything is not realy in webhosting. There are a lot more to it to actually make your wbesite successful.
Very good advice and should provide a nice recurring income.
I like the Hostgator affiliate program …maybe some readers would like to check it out.
I know Reed or even myself could provide you with a few ideas and even where to start with geting a blog
It is a very good blog. The time is really ripe for this type of article to be published. Thanks!
This is a great example of selecting a potentially great product to focus on.
=> The market is massive
=> The services too are a massive confusion
=> So … people need guidance
=> Easy to build blogs and lenses etc to provide valuable information and thus build authority
=> This will get you high SERPs and thus massive traffic
=> Successful customers need more hosting all the time so they will be back for more.
The trick is … to find examples in your niche. And webhosting covers any niche where the market needs to get online.
Hope this further inspires some to give this a go.
This is a good idea. I hadn’t thought about
that but I think I will add a website affiliate link to my blog!Thanks for the tip.
Maxs last blog post..How To Find Legitimate Resell Rights Products
James and Helen
Reed we wish you would say who is the best host company and where to get our domain. There are so many out there and yet they are do different. Thank you as we are learning so much from you. James and Helen
As you said, web hosting is a good opportunity to make money as an affiliate.
A good way to promote this kind of affiliate programs is giving away information about how to use the service.
You can create screenshots or video tutorials explaining how to set it up and how to get the best out of it.
On the other hand, there are some web hosting companies that pay a residual income.
It means that every month they pay you a commission as long as the person referred by you is an active member.
What’s good in your life today?
Hey, thank you for posting this
today. What you said at the end
about choosing the affiliate
program that is right for you is
Tons of affiliate programs exists
and they wouldn’t exist if they
didn’t make money.
Took me a long time to settle
on a major market to focus on,
though now that I did, results
Thank you for the motivation.
Be well my friend.
I remember waking up one morning and finding all my sites gone. So I opened my own hosting business about 5 or 6 years ago (can’t remember as one day floats into the next.) I take care of all techy stuff and am considered the “Cron Queen”. My clients are happy and know they can call on me anytime as I am never too busy to help, but I hardly ever get calls for help because most all of my clients are webmasters themselves. Hosting is one of two businesses I run. The other is my online store/catalog that I have redesigned and is now ready for holiday shopping to commence. 🙂
Reed..great article on web hosting and the part I like best about it is that it says…if you are going to use a hosting company…why not take advantage of the promoting the service you are using and at the very least getting it for free!
Here’s to your success!
Good information about a new income source I read about some hosting companies pay you for refferals Now i will inquire about my hosting company Thanks for great idea
One word about referring any service, hosting or otherwise. Your credibility and reputation is on the line. By all means, check out the company you are referring. Don’t just stick up a banner on your site for just anybody. Make an effort to know what your affiliate choice has to offer and decide if you would have appreciated such a referral.
I like my hosting companies and have first hand experience so I am comfortable becoming an affiliate. Always good practice to know what you are passing along.
PS here is my personal favorite but I also have a couple more:
Jays last blog post..Time to Get Serious about Your Internet Business
I don”t if i want loose money in business.
I can see a big opportunity in web hosting, the way the internet is expanding. A good web host can take on quite a few different income streams, by offering different services. Good service is a must. If I had several websites, I would certainly want to become an affiliate.
Awesome post as usual Reed!
I have been a affilaite and customer with http://www.Bluehost.com and they are super! They have fantastic 24/7 customer support and they are only $6.95 per month for hosting. I would say they are probably one of the top 3 hosting companies if not #1!
They also have a great affilaite program. $65 per referral. All my website design clients end up using them for hosting. If you do require hosting please visit my website under my resources page and sign up under my affilaite link 🙂 I also have another 2 hosting companies I am affilaite with but they are nothing like Bluehost!!

Serena Carcasoles last blog post..Blogsite – 4 Great Reasons to Have One
I have often thought about reccommending a webhost as an affiliate. If I were to choose one, I would have to reccommend Startlogic.
A recent search I did listed a website with a bunch of webhosts compared to each other, and on that website they ranked Startlogic as the #1 webhost.
I definately have been happy with them, that’s for sure. The best thing I like about this particular webhost is the customer service. I never get a voicemail, or recording, or even get put on hold.
I also don’t get no tech support people from India who can only speak broken english and are often hard to understand.
Does this problem seem familiar to most of you? I bet it does. About half of the large corporations who have any tech support seem to have this problem, and they wonder why people gripe about their customer service. ;D
Startlogic has always been able to help me when I have had to call them. You actually get to talk to real, halfway intelligent people who try to solve your particular problem and not like others who’s only jobs are to read you the same script that they read to everyone who calls.
The thing here though is, I have done keyword research on this niche before, and the numbers didn’t look promsing.
For the most part, there were a lot of search on keywords and key phrases related to this niche, but they also had way to much competition, as far as the number of other sites that provide info and content on the same topic, so how do you figure that promoting webhosts as an affiliate is profitable?
My own keyword research kind of contradicts what you are saying.
Excellent Article reed thanks
I have been an affiliate of hostgator web hosting and its been going good,
Great tip! Web hosting is one of those little affiliate pieces that many folks overlook but that everyone needs…and we can provide a resource link for them.
Reed, A really high quality web host with a cracker Affiliate Program is SiteSell.com driven by Dr Ken Evoy. It is great because it pays lifetime residuals and the hosting is supported by real SEO and tweaking tests and services that ensure a site owner’s working success. I’m not including any link here but I do recommend this as I’ve experienced it with 2 sites since 2003.
Another market which we often overlook for it’s income potential; on my own site I review what I consider are the top 3 hosting services – I believe this is better than promoting one: visitors can view the features and benefits and select a best match.
Keep up the excellent standard!
@Bruno choosing niches that fit your personality and interests is a great point thanks.
@Peter a lot of people use Kiosk especially internet marketers
@Sheila, Mohamed you’re welcome

@Barb congrats on your success
@Tripti I highly recommend doing that.
@Jay agreed your credibility is hard to build but easy to destroy be careful what you promote
@Horace what are you saying?
@normz2 I think we will see a lot of all in one marketing style/web hosting/autoresponder type companies cropping up
@Serena and @Misato very nice, thanks for the heads up
@Geoff great tip Dr. Evoy has been around a long time, I remember reading some of his stuff when I started.
@Richard thanks, yes I can see a review site for this doing very well.
Right on Reed, Web hosting is a hot market and
if you can combine it with domain name resales
(expired domains) you could probably really
do well. I am currently working on a system of this sort and will let you know how it works out.
With all of these comments I might want to hurry!
Timothy Millars last blog post..Getting your Traffic from Ad Exchanges?
@Timothy thank you
Being seen as a guru or professional means more traffic, easier conversions and thus more sales and residual sales! Getting customer feedback means more words to your site, more content to your site and something that just might trigger “that someone”.
@Jussi yes I would agree with that.
Codrut Turcanu I Blog for Profit
“there is no one dominant force in the industry”
I have to argue with you a bit… dreamhost is a recognized force, maybe others will come into mind, but that’s the one I’m using 🙂
@Codrut dreamhost is big but they also have several competitors that are the same size. What I meant was there’s no host that is synonymous with the word hosting.
yeah Reed.. being a web hosting affiliate
probably is better than being a reseller.
I once was a reseller, but I was “one man band” and customer support takes too much time, so I am going to bother…. anyway nice reading of your article

To Your Success
Great stuff!!! These ways to make money online are good..
@proson thanks, agreed most people would be better off being an affiliate
@Bryan yes they do go together nicely.
@Ishan you’re welcome
Reed, I hear ya, when deciding who was the best host to recommend, I didn’t have to go far. I love my guys and to refer them, even if for zero commission, is where I am.
It’s nice to have those you can count on.
Jays last blog post..My first site–and my second–and my third, how easy it is!
Athens GA Web Design
I just set up a page of my blog comparing various hosting companies, and I’m hoping that this will supplement my income a little. I’m also a freelance designer & developer, so I also have a change to do a little off-line marketing when it comes to hosting as well. It all goes well, I may just spin this off and make it it’s own website, but I wanted to try it on my blog first, since I already have a lot of content and links there.
Hosting is another great way to make money by being an affiliate. When people see that you are making money online and they want to have their own, it’s great when you can make your own suggestions.
Just send them to your affiliate link and viola! =D

I’m using Netfirms at the moment because it’s the one I originally used for my Computer Service business. You’re right that there are so many choices out there now. Cpanel is what to look for in a host as it makes things a little easier. I plan on moving to Hostgator at some point and they do have an affiliate program
To be a super affiliates, honestly up to date, I don’t think it’s a short time project, it’s a long road, if anyone ever promised you to get results in short terms, be prepared for disappointment.Lot’s of hype out there, better learn to do it gradually.
Ari Lestarionos last blog post..Top 13 New Years Resolutions (continued)
Right on the money. And there are so many niches,it is hard to go wrong…. plus the barriers to doing business have never been so low…. a $10 domain name and $5 for hosting first month, you are good to go….on the other hand, the level of knowledge is low, so failure high…at least its not asmall fortunewhen they go down. Go Nichers!

In Chinese, we believe that business is two way. So, Reed Floren’s idea is a good way to make some decent earnings from the web hosting company, in addition to hosting our web with the company. We also believe the power of word-of-mouth, therefore, introducing a good web hosting service company to our scope of contacts (or so-called human network) is also a good testimonial to prospective customers.
You may feel very upset when it comes to choose the web hosting for your website because there are so many web hosting providers on this planet. If you are still new to website as well as web hosting, you may want the advice or lists of best web hosting so you can choose easily for your website.
net kl hosting, after-sales support certainly proved awesome, in terms of internet speed and the quality of your … I have been using netkl services for the past 2-3 years.
