The HostPapa affiliate program allows you to earn money by referring new customers to HostPapa. HostPapa affiliates use banners (which we provide) or text links containing a unique ID to attract new customers. Every time one of your links produces a qualified sale, HostPapa pays you a generous commission.
HostPapa offers our valued affiliates a number of advantages, including:
Step 1: Create your account
Visit http://partners.opienetwork.com and click on AFFILIATE SIGN UP. Complete the signup form and click “Submit” to be automatically enrolled in the program.
Step 2: Choose your offer
Click on OFFERS on the top menu. Then click on the offer your wish to run (for example, HOSTPAPA.COM). Scroll down, read and agree to the Terms & Conditions. Click SAVE. New fields will open up below.
Step 3: Get your affiliate tracking link
Scroll down to the GENERATE TRACKING section. Your affiliate tracking link will appear in the TRACKING LINK field.
Step 4: Get banners
Scroll down to the CREATIVE drop-down menu (just below the tracking link). Select your banner and the system will generate your HTML code. Upload this code to your website.
OpieNetwork is a leading online advertising network. HostPapa has partnered with OpieNetwork to provide our affiliates with an advanced tracking system. This system has many features and benefits that will directly improve conversions right away and ultimately help earn you more commissions.
The answer is yes... and no.
HostPapa has global conversion capabilities. This means you may use one tracking link for all of your marketing campaigns and we will give you credit for any sales, regardless of the geography in which the sale was made. You will get credit for all HostPapa sales initiated through your tracking link.
If you are located in the United States, you may choose to target the U.S. market. You then select a HostPapa.com banner and add it to your website. A visitor to your website who is located in Canada sees your advertising campaign, and clicks on your banner and supporting tracking link. Since the system is IP address-driven, it will automatically redirect the visitor to the signup page according to his or her geography – in this case, this visitor will go to the HostPapa.ca signup page and will be shown products in Canadian dollars (as well as the option to order using English or French).
However, if you plan to promote HostPapa on multiple websites or in categories that are region-specific, we recommend that you select each offer based on that specific geography. Within each offer, you will find country-specific banners to add to your lists.
No, this is not a requirement. If you wish to refer your friends, family, coworkers, or clients via face-to-face or online interactions, you may simply provide them with your Affiliate Tracking URL and have them click on it prior to purchase.
However, we recommend you place the HostPapa banner on your website if you receive traffic that may be interested in our services. That way, if someone decides to sign up through your website, you'll receive a commission without having to do anything!
While you may participate in the Affiliate Program no matter where you live, the currency in which your commission is paid depends on where the sale was generated.
You may choose to be paid by check or by PayPal, with two exceptions:
You can view or change your preferred payment method by logging in to your affiliate account and clicking on the ACCOUNT > BILLING section.
Each client you refer needs to remain active for more than 30 days, which is HostPapa's money-back guarantee period. After 30 days, if the client has chosen to continue with HostPapa services – and provided that you have reached the minimum threshold required in your account (see the next question) – your payment will be issued on the next affiliate payment cycle. Affiliates are paid on the 16th of each month.
Please note: An invoice is automatically generated by the affiliate system at the end of each month. However, that invoice is subject to change within the following 30 days, due to adjustments required from cancellations during our 30-day money-back guarantee period or fraudulent client accounts.
Yes. The minimum threshold is CAD $100 (Canada/U.S./Australia/Mexico/India/Singapore/New Zealand/Hong Kong), €50 (Europe), or £50 (UK). If you do not reach this minimum, your commission will roll over each month until the balance is met.
HostPapa does not allow self-referrals in our program. We do manual checks monthly and if we find a self-referral we will simply reverse the commission.
No. At this time, we only offer commissions on new accounts purchased with HostPapa. Renewals, addon domains, subdomains, and extra add-ons are not eligible for commissions.
HostPapa will pay an affiliate up to per sale, based on the service that is purchased. Our current commission structure is as follows:
You may view your reports at any time by logging into your affiliate interface to view all of your account activities and commission details. Here's how:
The interface has selected default options for your reports. You can include/exclude columns or filter data as necessary.
Please note: The commissions viewed on the reports are presented in the base currency of the Network (USD). You can view the report in the native currency for the offer (if applicable) by including the CURRENCY option found in the DATA field section when you run your report.
There are many benefits to both the Reseller Plan and the Affiliate Program, two very different programs. You'll need to decide which is best for your specific needs.
The Affiliate Program is a referral program. You receive a one-time commission from HostPapa for each valid new account you refer to us. As you refer more accounts, you may be given the opportunity to offer discounts to your customers. If you don't want to handle the technical and support side of web hosting, the Affiliate Program is for you.
The Reseller Plan lets you host multiple clients and provide them with their very own control panels and logins. You can set up your own web hosting business, under your own brand name. By subscribing to the reseller plan, you are purchasing a certain amount of disk space and bandwidth from HostPapa. You may then resell this capacity, as you wish, to your own clients. Your clients will never know that HostPapa is providing their web hosting services. In this way, you may start a private-label web hosting operation without investing in expensive infrastructure, servers, bandwidth, and IT staff. You manage the technical, support, and billing aspects of your business; you have a primary login to manage your clients. In other words, you're in control!
