    A good web host will be good for anything pertaining to web marketing not just affiliate marketing. I'm using Heroku at the moment and really like them.

    choose DIFFERENT solution:

    One for the domain: Godaddy.
    One for hosting: Greengeeks is affordable and reliable, their support desk is really responsive.

    how did this conversation go from hosting platforms to hosting providers?

    most everyone uses Wordpress.

    I would also stay clear of GoDaddy!

    When you say 'hosting' everyone will think of hosting providers. A hosting provider is a company that hosts your website on the Internet. It doesn't matter whether your website is an affiliate marketing website or a blog or any other kind of website, you will need a hosting provider to host your domain.
    Personally, I use Hostgator for my websites. But other reputable ones line Godaddy are fine, too.

      i find what u said quit intresting because everyone is talking about hostgator and say that it's the best out there.. so why do u think that hostgator is bad? and why do u prefer the sites that u mentioned?

    Hostgator doesn't exist anymore, aside from name only. It's EIG, along with 75+ other brands, and is a horrid option.

    Godaddy of 2017 isn't the Godaddy of yesteryear, and is not a bad option. But there are still better.

    As far as "for affiliate marketing", a good host will work equally well for marketing or doctors or blogging about cats. What you want is good support, good uptime, and a host that is helpful to you and your business. Which exact host you get depends on your exact needs (location, resources, etc).

    I'd get domains from Namecheap.

    My preference for domain registration is moniker and cosmotown. Neither is Enom and won't null route your domains for spam complaints / blacklistings.

    If you are going to use a domain short term or you will never get any complaints, just use Namecheap.

    As far as hosting goes, it really doesn't matter that much. Everyone has expectations of producing huge volume, which most will never do. So just go with someone cheap and upgrade later.

    I've used a few that are worth mentioning, but my favorite now is Dreamhost. Will soon be upgrading from shared hosting to VPS.

    I use communitybasedhosting because:
    #1 - They co-manage sites with me and it saves me A LOT of TIME!
    #2 - They provide 24/7 LIVE security monitoring and Rapid Hacker Response Team Included!
    #3 - They have Virtual Assistant teams promoting every site hosted with them!

    And they have a growing number of specialized done for you sites and services that no one else has.

    For an affiliate marketer, I think you'll be hard pressed to find other web hosts who actually act like your partner in business.

    Best ever! And I just moved all of my properties over to them after getting horrid support from my last provider for BASIC issues.

    I even suggest that every beginner start on the right foot and host their site there - it can save you years!

    I could not recommend Hostgator for such a project due to how they tend to handle changes in their own policies. What will work for you now may not work for you in the future - so - there is a chance you could be "stuck" in an interesting situation.

    In my case, I have been a HG member for a number of years. I had an ACH-type of payment to take place. During this time, a certain amount of data has accumulated. In this past, such an amount of data was not a problem. Due to some kind of "change in policy", it has now become one. Now I have "too much data" on my account.

    Over the past year, I have been involved in working on other issues - so - I did not return to the HG site - and - was not aware of the changes.

    With the change, they shut down your web site. So, when individuals type in your domain, they will see an advertisement for Hostgator - even though they still accept your payment. Access to your site will not take place until the situation (i.e. reduce the amount of data) is corrected.

    Fair enough - but - the kicker is that you can't access your account - at all. So, it is a Catch-22 situation. Your site will continue to be an advertisement for Hostgator until the "extra data" has been deleted - but - your account has been disabled - so - you can't log in to delete the extra data.

    Logging messages with HG have not had any effect as dealing with one agent becomes tiresome as you have to re-explain the situation at each time.

    I had sought a refund for the problem (citing the HG TOS agreement that your site will be up for 99.9%) - however - I found that this ONLY applies to the first 45 days after you purchase the package. So, if one has been there a number of years, this "guarantee" would be null and void (as it is past the 45 day limit).

    This has been my experience with Hostgator as of late. I initially thought them to be a good company - but - it seems as though there have been some changes in the organization that make it no longer so.

    I suggest or for domain registration.

    For managed wordpress hosting, consider wpengine.

    For full-on web apps where you want full control of the server, use a VPS... I'm a huge fan of DigitalOcean. Linode is a popular alternative.

    Heroku is a popular PaaS (Platform As a Service) for Rails, PHP and Node web apps when you don't have the capability of setting up the entire server yourself (ie don't have an ops person).

    But of course power users (like myself ) also use AWS directly instead of Heroku.

    Hope this helps. Let me know if you have questions about any of these.

  • Bluehost are great for the price - they get quite a bad wrap from the developer community, but for less than $5/month they're hard to beat!

    I like VendorLock hosting by Jeff Noyes.

    This is about the best deal I've seen and it comes with unlimited sites, emails, and you get a free auto-responder service on your own domain.

    I am very happy with this hosting service.

    I believe you won't find another hosting service that compares to this value.

    Ah, ok here we go and why,

    SSL is very important, and you should choose a Hosting that has Free SSL which is Bluehost, I use them to run many websites for my Web design business and run all my affiliate sites.

    Many people are still not using SSL certificate, if you don't use a SSL , people or customers will see your browser is not secured by SSL,

    So Bluehost only or you will pay hundreds from other hosting companies, so now you know.

    Thanks Rob.
