The Simplest, Easiest Web Hosting for Affiliates

Web hosting is the actual computer on the internet that has all the files and code that make up your affiliate website. Don't let this scare you. In one of the next tutorials in the series on Affiliate Marketing for Beginners, Building Wordpress Website for Beginner Affiliates we cover how to run your website with Wordpress which takes care of all the coding and 'glue' that holds the website together so you can concentrate on the making money part and not have to worry about any coding or the boring details.

Important Feature of a Web Host for Affiliates

To avoid any headaches or problems stick with the good, quality, professional web hosts listed below. The best web hosting only costs $3 - $5 per month. Don't make the mistake in the beginning. I wanted the least expensive web host I could find.

than bad web hosting.

I figured web host web schmost, they are all the same, right? WRONG. I looked up web hosting on Ebay and purchased one (cphosting) that only cost $20 for an entire year. Found out later: very slow, no technical support. I have been affiliate marketing since 2009 and have used several different web hosts so learn from my experience.

Web host requirements (the difference between a good and bad web host):

  • SPEEEED. This is soooo important it can't be stressed enough. If your web hosting is slow your visitors AND Google (the biggest search engine that will be sending you all your visitors) are going to hate you.
  • Reliability. Every web host has what is called uptime which is communicated in terms of percentage. For example a 99% uptime means that for every 100 hours your website is live and online one hour of those 100 your website will be unreachable to search engines and visitors. This is because the web hosting company needs that downtime to maintain its web host and upgrade the software that runs the web host. Good web servers have the highest percentages of uptime and the least downtime.
  • Technical Support. If ever you should have a question that needs answering would you prefer sending an email and waiting two days for a response or would you rather call a toll free number where you talk to a live, English speaking, human being in just a few minutes?

List of Good Reliable Fast Web Hosts:

Most of these web hosting provides have different plans at different prices. For affiliate marketing purposes you only need the LEAST EXPENSIVE PLAN.

least expensive hosting package

The more expensive plans allow you to have multiple and/or unlimited number of websites and domains and for making money online as an affiliate marketer you only need one domain and one website.

What Happens After Web Hosting Purchase

Immediately after purchasing web hosting you will get an email from the web host containing your account details including username and password as well as FTP file transfer details. Because you will be using Wordpress as your websites framework you do not really need the FTP details. You will need the username and password to login to your web hosting control panel. Make sure you save this email in a safe place.
