  • 6-10 : $75/sign-up
  • 11-20 : $100/sign-up

Issues With Hostgator Affiliate Program

Hostgator pays only for an active account and not for inactive users i.e who signed up but never uploaded website on their server. Many users reported about unpaid payment and many referrals to be shown as inactive or fraud.

Also if your referred user sign up for another hosting account then your referral will be voided. Honestly, till now I haven't faced such issues and successfully running it for over 1 year.
