HostNine Affiliate Program Soars, Ranks First for Web Hosting with Commission Junction

JUPITER, Fla. (September 1, 2010) – HostNine, a leader in Shared Hosting, Reseller Hosting, Dedicated Servers, and Virtual Private Servers, announced today its soaring affiliate program was ranked #1 among all Web hosting affiliate program by Commission Junction, the worldwide leader in affiliate program management.

In the past three months, HostNine has an overall ranking from Commission Junction of #2 of 63 total affiliate programs. In all affiliate programs (3,226) run by Commission Junction, HostNine ranks #40. Commission Junction ranks affiliate programs based on their payouts and success rates—both of which are key priorities for HostNine. Affiliate payouts from HostNine are in excess of $150 per referred sale for high-volume affiliates.

“We have always viewed affiliate marketing as a vital way to broaden our customer base and maintain widespread brand recognition in the industry. By rewarding our partners generously and tangibly supporting their efforts to generate sales, we have built years of trust and countless loyal affiliates. Commission Junction’s top ranking for HostNine backs up what we’ve been saying for a long time, and it means a lot to our team,” said Taylor Hawes, affiliate program manager, HostNine.

Affiliates can leverage dozens of constantly updated banners and Web marketing assets provided by HostNine. The company also has invested heavily in upgrades to its website, which has reduced the order form dropout rate by a whopping 30%. The substantial enhancements are largely due HostNine’s unique two-step order form, further shortening the sign-up process. Affiliates have already praised the changes.

In May, HostNine introduced sweeping upgrades to its line of hosting plans, adding unlimited disk space, unlimited bandwidth, and other features for its worldwide shared Web hosting. Users can also choose from server locations in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Asia. In August, HostNine removed all annual payment requirements, extending savings to customers who pay monthly. HostNine now offers unlimited shared hosting for just $3.95 a month on a month to month basis. Other companies require anywhere from two to three years up front payment to receive affordable pricing.

“Honesty and integrity have always been our guiding principles, and we decided that advertising a $3.95 per month hosting plan, which really requires an up front payment of nearly $142.50, isn’t in line with the image we want to portray We’re now one of the only hosting companies that actually offers a $3.95 per month hosting plan for a monthly payment of $3.95. We’re not worried about locking in our customers—they’ll stay with us for years because they love our service, not because we force them to,” said Ben Gabler, operations manager, HostNine.

Reseller Hosting from HostNine is available in five levels, starting at just $24.95 per month, which includes 50GB of disk space, 500GB of bandwidth, and a wide-variety of value-added features, such as the award-winning Reseller Central platform (available on all Reseller Hosting plans). Reseller Central is available exclusively to HostNine customers and provides resellers with unprecedented control of the reseller environment through a single, easy-to-use interface.

Dedicated Hosting and VPS Hosting also offer a wide variety of options and generous allotments of hosting resources.
