If you work closely with clients and are responsible for buying and managing domain names, it's smart to participate in affiliate programs to supplement your income. There are hundreds of programs available and now NameCheap is added to that list. NameCheap recently announced the launch of its an affiliate program due to the high amount of recommendations it receives from customers. Affiliates receive 15 percent from each new sale, with no limit on product offerings or quantity sold. This includes hosting, transfers and basically any time someone creates a new account, according to Michelle Greer with NameCheap.
Other domain registrars with affiliate programs include GoDaddy and Network Solutions, plus many more. GoDaddy affiliates receive 20 percent commission on new purchases, and Network Solutions affiliates receive 30 percent commission on new purchases and transfers.
NameCheap's commission may be lower than other programs in the market, but Greer adds the ease of use associated with NameCheap makes up the difference. "NameCheap is known for its easy user interface and checkout process," Greer says. "Plus it's an easy sell because when you buy a domain, you get an SSL cert for free."
