      You are most welcome charan. It is really a good idea to start a blog on Bluehost only. This will increase the authority and bring only targeted traffic which is most important for affiliate marketing. Keep up the good work and also share your learning here time to time.

  • if i made a coupon blog for bluehost .can i make sale ?

    • Bluehost is one of most popular hosting affiliate program and many top bloggers are trying to create micro niche site around Bluehost discount or Bluehost coupon. I believe if you can build good links with quality article, then you can definitely be able to rank the website and then make good money as well.

  • Hi, Santanu this is my first time here and I really enjoyed your post but as I am also planning to promote bluehost on my blog but when I saw their commission structure they are providing $65 per sale right but how come you made $125 per sale. On the page of yours are “Bluehost India Coupons 2016″ are you promoting blue host india affiliate link or affiliate link. As it makes more sense since you are promoting bluehost india and visitors of india will feel hesitant when they see that they have to pay in dollors instead of INR.

    Also please tell me how to avail $75 per sale as you talked about” how to install blue host on wordpress”

    Waiting for your reply Santanu.

    • Hi Rohit,

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts here. Actually I am promoting both Bluehost India and Last month Bluehost offered $120 bounty for all affiliates and I was able to make 3 sales from Regarding Bluehost India, I was able to make a single sale and I will be updating about Bluehost India Affiliates in my upcoming posts.

      I hope I am able to answer your queries. Feel free to share your further thoughts if any.. 🙂

      • ” if you can write an exclusive guide about how to install WordPress on Bluehost hosting plan, you will get a chance to get a commission of $75/sale. I have written a similar article to eligible for that commission”

        Please clarify this Santanu thanks in advance

        • Yes, the default promotional bounty for Bluehost affiliate program is $65 only. But based on your promotional strategy you will get higher commission rate as well, for that you have to contact Bluehost affiliate team for more details. The best way to do is by writing a Start a blog article or How to install WordPress on Bluehost.

  • Dear Santanu,

    I wanted to offer small bespoke website design for free, joomla or wordpress websites. I will have a form that users will use to upload the content they need, then I will just build the website for them within a short period. The only catch is I will tell them they require hosting my hosting service at 120usd per year or encourage them use more professional Bluehost services through my affiliate link. It will have to be either of the two. My question is can that be considered as a bleach of affiliate guidelines.

    Thanks for your help.

    • I think regarding terms you should contact their Bluehost affiliate team to get clarification. They are very prompt and helpful while responding and I am asking them many questions time to time.

  • I think, it is a must join program. I would check out and i am waiting to earn my affiliate income through Bluehost. I suggest you to write a review on Ipage web hosting affiliate sale.
