Webmasters.com Partner Program - Link to us and make $
Our partners earn a 10% commission from the first year's hosting fees their referrals generate. Since our Business Hosting plan is billed annually, the minimum commission would be $11.94, and can be as high as $53.94 for an account with multiple options. Each of our partners receives their own unique linking code which is placed on their website to direct visitors to our site. We use persistent cookies to track all partner referrals, so commission will still be earned even if the visitor leaves our website, and returns up to one year later to sign up. After the first visit, returning visitors can come in directly through our website, and do not have to re-enter through the partner's site.
If a referred visitor signs up for any of our hosting plans, our tracking system will notify the referring partner that a sale has been made, and a commission is earned. We also provide real time traffic and sales stats that display the number of daily unique visitors referred by your partner link along with a detailed sales report. An active partner with targeted traffic could earn $1,000 per month and up.
