The Best Web Hosting For Affiliate Marketers

Web hosting can be a very confusing thing when starting out in affiliate marketing. When I first started a few years ago I wasted a bunch of money trying different web hosts to see which one had a website builder that I could figure out and customize easily, and boy was it a pain in the you know what. I want to save you the troubles that I went through and tell you what I think is the best web hosting for affiliate marketers.

First off, I'm going to explain to you exactly what web hosting is and how you can tell if you're paying too much for it. The reason that we need web hosting is so that your website can be seen live on the web, and to do this your files are stored on a server with the hosting company that you deal with.

After figuring this out, I thought "why can't I just buy my own server?" and then called a good friend of mine who some might call a computer geek to ask him about it. Well to keep it simple, it's easier and cheaper to buy your hosting through some hosting company. Now the tricky part is to choose one of these hosting companies out of the thousands that are out there.

Things A Hosting Company Should Offer:

These are basic things that a good hosting company should offer to their customers, but you would be amazed at how may of them either (a) limit some or all of these features, or (b) they do not offer some of these features at all.

The most that I would spend on something like this is $6.95 a month from a trusted web host like BlueHost or HostGator. Often if you are a first time buyer with these companies they will have a special offer for somewhere around $4 a month.

This still doesn't make things easy for some affiliate marketers because if you're just starting out and not very tech savvy, it can be like trying to read a foreign language when setting things up. If you're anything like me, now you have to pay for a training course of some sort and on top of that now there's a web hosting bill.

Then Finally, I Found A Solution...

In 2009 I learned about the Wealthy Affiliate University (also known as WA or WAU), which offered internet marketing training and web hosting among many other things. It's hard to describe exactly what WA in a couple paragraphs, so I'm going to outline some of the main features:

Internet Marketing Training - For beginners, intermediate and advanced internet marketers

Support - There is a live chat system where the owners are always helping, along with others in the community

Services - Unlimited web hosting for platinum members along with website builders (WordPress Express)

Tools - There is a keyword tool, affiliate link cloaker, content spinning tool, ClickBank research tool and much more.

Community - They have one of the best internet marketing forums on the web, blog, private messaging system and customized profiles to interact with other internet marketers.

I actually joined in June of 2009 and I am still a member today, and I haven't bought web hosting for any of my affiliate sites from another company since then. If you compare the cost of everything that you get at WA, there is nowhere else on the internet where you get this much value for the price I pay every month. It truly is one of the best places to get internet marketing training from people who are actually successful from it.
