GoDaddy Launches an Affiliate Program
GoDaddy, one of the world’s largest domain name registrars, launched an affiliate program. Affiliates can earn commissions by referring customers to GoDaddy’s various services.
If you already have a GoDaddy account, you can immediately apply for the affiliate program. Commission is 20% of the total money the customer spent on the site, not including coupons and deals.
Affiliates can choose from more than 100 GoDaddy banner or text ads to post on their existing Web site, blog, Facebook page or any other online space that allows users to post such links.
Interestingly enough, this program is launched only a few days after GoDaddy has announced that .COM and .NET domain prices will increase by up to 10%. According to the mail sent to GoDaddy users, “On July 1, 2010, VeriSign®, the registry for .COM and .NET, will increase prices – .COM will go up 7%, and .NET by 10%”.
If you have .COM or .NET domain names, you might want to renew them sooner than you planned, just to save yourself a few bucks. It’s also advisable to register your domains for a few years in advance – usually this means you’ll get a small discount, and you’ll protect yourself from unexpected price increase.
