Partner with Us

affiliates partner with usIn light of our new hosting offerings, we thought it was a great time to revamp our affiliate program. In all honestly, we’ve never put much effort into our affiliate program—but that’s all changed.

We’re pleased to announce our new Affiliate Partner Program.

Why “partner”? Sure, we could offer the standard ten, twenty or whatever percent that other providers give to affiliates, but we think this sort of commission arrangement severely undervalues what affiliates bring to the table. We understand that you’re potentially bringing to us new customers that otherwise may not hear about us. You’re spending your time and your effort and burning your bandwidth and clout to promote us. As an affiliate you become part of our sales team and help us reach a new audience. These are all good reasons for using the word partner to describe the relationship we have with our affiliates. You’re a partner in our success. When we win, so do you.

Our new affiliate partners will enjoy:

  • 50% commission on all hosting sales
  • $20 sign-up bonus
  • 60 day wait period for payouts
  • low $60 threshold before making a withdrawal
  • easy payouts via your choice of Paypal, Check, or Account Credit
  • professionally designed banners for your site(s)

50% commissions mean a lot for your wallet. For example that means $60 for each annual Simple Hosting Plan customer you send our way.

Introducing Our New Business Hosting Plan

01 July 2014 News 0 3456

On the back of announcing our new Simple Hosting Plan, we're proud to launch out our updated Business Hosting Plan.

The new plan for your business comes standard with double the disk space and 100 more gigabytes in bandwidth transfer.

Hosting dynamic websites like Joomla and Wordpress can place significant resource demands on servers as data is pulled to write pages. So, we’ve combined a set of features that limits and lowers overall resource utilization, making for less server load and a much more stable hosting environment.

Plan features

  • SSD Disk space - sites hosted on the plan are now hosted exclusively on our speedy SSD-based cloud servers.
  • NGINX (pronounced "engine-x”) webserver as a frontend to apache to limit thread creation for requests. NGINX acts as a load balancer to apache, only passing through true web requests, utilizing much less memory.
  • We've included VarnishCache, which writes your pages to memory cache–speeding up delivery of your dynamic content up to 1000 times faster than standard hosting.
  • We’re using CloudLinux OS on all of our shared cloud servers to ensure customers are getting the fair-use memory and CPU resources they deserve and as a way to limit resource abusers. Cloudlinux also insulates accounts from other users using CageFS by limiting shell access to only needed functions, making for an even more secure environment.
  • We’ve also added SpamExperts email filtering service by default on all inbound and outbound email traffic. SpamExperts boasts 99.98% filtering accuracy with close to zero false positives. In a nutshell, this means you can kiss junk mail goodbye. Since we’re also using their outgoing filtering service, our server IPs stay blacklist free.

Hosting Account Resources

20GB of disk space is now included by default. That’s 5 times the base specs disk space of our old plan. We have lowered costs for additional disk space down to $0.20 per gigabyte. That’s $0.30 cheaper per gig and SSD disk space at that!

We've increase default bandwidth to 250GB. You can now buy more bandwidth at just $0.10 per gigabyte in increments of 10. As before, you can host unlimited domains with unlimited MySQL databases on the plan. 

We also have included a dedicated IP address free of charge, a free domain name and manage backups for you from the last 7 days and the 1st and 15th of the month.

The new Business Hosting Plan is available for as little as $25/month and is available starting today.
