1. What do I need to become an affiliate?

It is best if you have your own web site(s) but that isn't essential (although having your own website helps). You can promote our product via search engines, blog and forum postings provided they are permitted and not classed as spam, or simply by email to all your friends and people you know using your affiliate link to our products.

All you need to do is to send a visitor to our site via your own unique link (called an 'affiliate link'), and if he or she makes a purchase with E Shop Hosts, you will recevie between 10% and 25% of the sale value credited to your affiliate account.

Below are the typical commission amounts you can expect:

  • Starter hosting plan referral (annual sign up) - £2.99 commission paid
  • Standard hosting plan referral (annual sign up) - £5.09 commission paid
  • Pro hosting plan referral (annual sign up) - £7.59 commission paid
  • Shop In A Box referral (one off sign up) - £25.99 commission paid

2. How do I know I will be paid for my referral?

Our affiliate software uses combination of cookies and IP address to track referrals for best possible reliability. When the visitor follows your affiliate link to our site, our affiliate system registers this referral and places a cookie in his or her browser. When the visitor pays for the product, our affiliate system checks for the cookie (if not found, it will check the IP address of the referral) and automatically credits your account with up to 25% of the purchase value.
This process is completely automated. All of the referrals from your unique affilate link will be properly tracked.

3. How are Affiliate payments handled?

There are a number of options available to you. You can choose to either use the affiliate commission earned to credit your hosting account with E Shop Hosts to pay for our services or if you want to be paid by PayPal or Cheque, as well as minimum payout values (£25.00 minimum).
Payments are issued in GBP Pounds Sterling, and are paid once a month, on or around the 15th of the month.

4. How do I set up an account?

Setting up an Affiliate account with E Shop Hosts is very quick and easy and it is also completely FREE. You don't have to pay for becoming an affiliate.

All you need to do is sign up using our Signup Form if you don't have an account with E Shop Hosts or if you are an existing hosting customer then log in to your account and click the 'Affiliate' option to see your unique Affiliate details.

As one of our valued affiliates, you will have your own control panel where you can see detailed statistics of traffic, conversions and sales that you have referred. You will also get advance notice to news of our latest promotions, Affiliate incentives and training materials along with a regularly updated choice of banners and text links.

Then you only need to place an affiliate link, banner, text link or other link at your web site or place ads in pay-per-click search engines, so you can start earning commission by sending customers to the E Shop Hosts web site.

5. What is the affiliate link?

An Affiliate link is a special URL that will be unique to you, that you should use to send visitors to E Shop Hosts. Any visitor that has arrived on our site as a reult of clicking your affiliate link will be tracked using a cookie for 120 days so during that time, should they purchase a hosting plan, our system will know to allocate the affiliate commission to your account. You will get your unique E Shop Hosts Affiliate URL in your affiliate panel after log in and the banners will be displayed with your affiliate link for use on youre web site.

6. Can I promote you through pay-per-click search engines?

YES! You can promote us through pay-per-click search engines. In fact, this type of promotion becomes increasingly popular and we are aware of several affiliates promoting our products in this way and making a very good profit. (Well, they keep promoting us month after month, which tells you something, doesn't it?)

7. Do you have a training program for affiliates?

Yes, basics of affiliate marketing and most useful tips are described in your affiliate panel.
