    Looking for a Web Hosting Merchant Using 3rd Party Affiliate System
    I am considering putting up an offering on one of my sites for a free license of a SEO'ed CMS (content management system) that I sell for $149 and a free install of the same when 1 year of hosting is purchased thought an affiliate link on my site.

    I am looking for what is out there for affiliates in shared web hosting that offers *nix/mySQL/5GBbw accounts for $84 per year or less.

    I am also wondering what percent of web hosting merchants are using 3rd party affiliate systems vs. their own inhouse affiliate software and the pro's and con's for the affiliate in dealing with web hosting merchants using 3rd party vs inhouse.

    Why don't you set up a reseller account and handle the whole package????

    There is quite a bit of maintence required to run a shared hosting resellers account.

    Also support as a rule is poor for one man run shared hosting services. I was on one once and would never do it again and I couldn't promote something that I would buy myself.

    So what you're asking for here is a specific host recommendation for the deal you posted about in this thread:

    Free SEO CMS & Install (Page Generator) If You Buy 1 Year Hosting

    It's really the same topic (with a new thread started about it) and the answer will still be the same, that if you're intending to offer the CMS as an incentive for people to buy hosting through an affiliate link, most of the $84 or less hosting companies already have much free software already included in their packages, including several well-known, well-supported CMS.

    Again, the same recommendation you were giving in your other thread on this topic - search around to find out what the problems are with hosting affiliate programs, like the astronomically high reversal rate with most of them.

    I agree. I'm locking this one.

    Bob, you don't get to give this community orders on where/how/what to post.
