About Godaddy

Godaddy Affiliate Program

Godaddy is the world’s most popular domain registrar and one of the cheapest but quality webhosting company founded 1997.

Almost everyone heard about this company in a good or a bad way, but in general GoDaddy reviews are pretty positive. ”

How to Make Money with Godaddy?

Godaddy has an affiliate program  that promises publishers 15% per sale.  When you signup with the program and refers anyone  to purchase any of it’s products you are paid 15% as commission.

Products you can promote are:

  • Domain Names
  • Webhosting/Wordpress Hosting
  • SSL Certificates
  • Lots more

The Amazing Part;

Many of the Popular Webhosting Affiliate Programs only pay you when a user purchase their webhosting package through your affiliate  but its not thesame with Godaddy. Godaddy pays you even for referring customers to purchase its domain names.

Who Can Promote Godaddy Affiliate Program?

There’s no niche that would not be allowed to promote Godaddy’s Affiliate Program but there’s always a Niche that would do better, have more sales than the other which is those blogs who are solely into blogging, Website Design, etc.

Why would those on the Blogging Niche do better?  This is because they talk more on how to start a blog and make it successful which definitely requires readers purchasing a Domain Name and as well Webhosting Packages to start their own blogs.

Every Affiliate Program requires a Platform for promotion and Godaddy Affiliate Program is not an exemption. Godaddy Products would be promoted through your blog with the help of Commission Junction.

What is Commission Junction?

Godaddy Affiliate Program

Ever heard of Commission Junction? Commission Junction popularly known as CJ is an Affiliate Marketing Company that serves as a middleman for Publishers and Advertisers. This would bring us down to what it really is;

An Advertiser has a product it wants to promote >> It looks for a channel through which that product can be promoted which is Commission Junction >> Publishers promote the products (YOU are the Publisher)

Commission Junction’s job is to ensure a sale was made through your affiliate link with the help of its tracking tools and you get paid commission for the sale.

As a godaddy affiliate you can actually promote either with commission junction or zanox.

In the upcoming post I’d be making a commission junction vs zanox review.

  • Hi Prosper,

    I actually applied to the GoDaddy affiliate program a while ago but never heard about them. I guess I need to email them to see if they can approve my application.

    I think this will be a great way for me to earn some extra money. A lot of my WordPress clients use GoDaddy for everything.

    It wouldn’t hurt to join their program and see if I can increase my commissions while doing client work.

    Thanks for sharing, have a great day 🙂


    • Hi Susan,

      Glad to have you here once more and thanks for adding to the conversation.

      You may not get a reply from them for a long-time that was why I shared an Extra Tip in the article to get approval quickly which is emailing them.

      I believe they would definitely approve your application, on seeing the quality of your blog 😄.

      Thanks for coming and have a nice day!

    Web Hosting Affiliate Program of Godaddy seems good, but I would suggest to have a look at Cloudways affiliate program with which one can earn upto $4,140 per month, Cloudways also give a straight bonus of $25 when a referral first signup’s and becomes a paying customer, the best of all is the 10% recurring commission per year for each paying referred clients.

  • Hi hamza,

    You are welcome to my blog and thanks for the suggestion.

    Do share the post with friends and have a nice day!

  • i actually applied for this and didnt get approved, my niche then was news and entertainment. i later reapplied with my ne tech blog and was approved the next day.
    thanks a lot prosper.

  • I need to try out this affiliate program. Didn’t know that a great blog like this existed at all. Happy you found it

  • Now a regular subscriber to this blog

  • As I know that Godaddy stopped paying commission for “Bulk Domain Name Registration” sales on CJ affiliate network. It means that if you have sales $10,000 through “Bulk Domain Name Registration”, then your commission is $0. I think It affected to revenue a lot. Many people have huge sales through Bulk domain name registration and they earned nothing.

  • Hello,
    Curious, if the customer buys a hosting package, the commission goes to the affiliate. What happens when the hosting package is then renewed? or the Domain name is renewed? Is there a recurring affiliate commission?

    • No Kim,

      There’s no recurring commission.

      You could check the Semrush affiliate program instead, it gives recurring commission!
