What restrains anyone from earning extra quick bucks? Risks associated with starting a new business or the requirement of huge capital investment in a new venture?

What if you can get a short cut to earn some quick and good money – the legal way? 🙂

Well that shortcut is – becoming a merchant’s affiliate. To some extent, affiliate marketing may be considered as performance based marketing where you promote a merchant’s products on your site and make money when your site visitors buy from them. The more you refer, the bigger is the commission.

Although there is no refined definition of best affiliate program, it completely depends on your requirement, your priorities and different factors which can affect your decision to be a merchant’s affiliate partner. For instance, the reason for buying a particular car brand may vary from one individual to another. For some, mileage matters and for others price may be concern.

So, to sort the confusion of best web hosting affiliate program, here’s a quick scan of the top hosting affiliate programs in India that will allow you to take your pick as per your suitability.
