Make Money with Your Website

May 13th, 2013

Simple ways to make money with your website:

1. Advertising

This is the most popular way because it is one of the best ways to make money online without putting in too much time and effort.

Some of the most popular choices for website advertisements are:

2. Get Paid to Post

If you have a blog that has a decent base of readers and/or a Google Page Rank, you can get paid to post reviews, articles and product launches on your website!

Some of the most popular choices are:

3. Affiliate Programs

Affiliate Programs are a good way to earn extra revenue on your website. By putting a simple URL on your website and/or pasting a banner, you can earn money any time someone clicks on that link and makes a purchase.

In Doteasy’s case, we pay you US$70 for every Unlimited Hosting sale. You get paid even if your visitor purchases our free Basic Hosting plan. More details on the Doteasy Affiliate Program*

Other popular choices:

4. Ad Space and Sponsorship

If your website or blog is popular enough, you can offer the option to accept site sponsorship and/or ad space. A lot of times, companies that target the same or related niche will pay you to advertise their services.

5. Donations

Placing a “Donate” link or button on a website can be an efficient way to earn money, especially if your blog contains information readers learn and gain value.

More Control and Bigger Earnings

November 25th, 2008

I came across an article in a recent issue of the Website Magazine that I thought many of you would be interested in. It talks about alternatives to Google Adsense. For those unfamiliar with it,Google Adsense is an advertisement application run by Google. As a website owner, you can signup for this program to allow Google to administrater ads on your website according to your site’s content and audience. When your site visitors click on these ads, you receive a percentage of the revenue.

While it is free to signup, easy to use and provides a supplemental income, there are also negatives associated with using Adsense, including lack of control over the ads and small earnings, and not to mention the somewhat ambigious rules and not-that-transparent proprietary click-fraud monitoring system.

Need alternatives?

1. PayPal

PayPal is not just for buying and selling online. You can also create PayPal buttons for your website to accept subscription/membership fees and donations via credit card, debit cards and/or PayPal. Note, you will need a PayPal Premier or Business account.

2. Affiliate Programs

Place links and banners on your website and get a percentage of their spending. You can sign up with services like Commission JunctionLinkConnector and/or ShareASale to access thousands of available affiliate programs.

With affiliate marketing, you decide which merchants to promote and how to promote them. For example, if your website is a blog and gallery of your travel stories, you can display banners or links from major online merchants such as Expedia, Travelocity, Budget Rent A Car or others in your blog sidebar or you can use text links within your site body content.

Another way is to visit your favorite merchants and see if they offer any affiliate programs. For example, you can place a Doteasy Affiliate Program banner on your website and earn up to US$70 per referral.

3. Ad Spots

For websites, blogs or forums that are established and big enough, you can consider selling ad spots on your website. Here is an article you can read for more information on selling ad spots on your website and blog.

2. Enter an Affiliate ID and password, security question and answer of choice.

3. Complete the application process by clicking on the “Next Step” button.

Your Affiliate Member Zone

Once you have received the confirmation email,

Your Affiliate Link

In order for our system to track your referral signups, your referrals must submit their web hosting application to us via your affiliate link. It is important that you setup your affiliate link correctly.

1. Click on the “Create Banner” link

2. We have over 15 banners for you to choose from. Once you have selected the one you want to us, click on the “Get Code” button underneath it.

3. Copy the whole length of the provided code

Affiliate Code

4. Paste the code to your website’s promotional location, ie. where you want to display the affiliate banner.

When your visitors click on your affiliate banner

When your friends visit your website and click on your affiliate banner, they will be taken to our Doteasy homepage. Note that the URL will be tagged with your Affiliate ID.

Affiliate ID in URL


1. Can I design my own affiliate banner?

Yes, you can use your own banner design. Using the generated affiliate code, you can replace the content in the [IMG SRC]tag. Let us know if you need help with this.

2. My friend submitted an application but forgot to do so via my affiliate link. I am listed as the account’s Admin Content. Does that count?

Unfortunately, the only way our system can record and track the referral is if they arrived at our homepage with your Affiliate ID tagged onto the URL. The only way to properly do so is via your affiliate link.

For more details, you can refer to our previous post or our Affiliate info page.

Earn Money With the Doteasy Affiliate Program

October 26th, 2007

Want to earn some easy money? Sure you do! Who doesn’t, right?< So, have you heard about the Doteasy Affiliate Program?

The Doteasy Affiliate Program is probably one of the easiest, high payout referral programs that are on the internet nowadays.

How does it work?

Each Affiliate Member is given an URL marked with their Affiliate ID. Whenever a visitor signs up for a hosting account with Doteasy by going through your Affiliate URL, your Affiliate Account will be credited with the referral. It’s just that simple.

You can place your Affiliate URL on your website as a link, or a banner. This is one of the most common ways to give your Affiliate URL exposure to the public.

If you don’t have a website, you can email your Affiliate URL to your friends and spread the word that way.

How do I get paid?

The Affiliate Program has an easy to understand payment scheme. The payout amounts are as follows.

$0 hosting – $5.00
Ultra Hosting – $50.00
Unlimited Hosting – $70.00

So, if you make 3 successful referrals for Unlimited Hosting, you will get $210.00!

Affiliate Members are paid once they have at least 3 referrals that are pending payout. To ensure that we get your commission out to you as soon as possible, the referrals are tallied and the cheques for the payouts are mailed out at the beginning of every month to minimize the waiting time.

You can sign up for the Affiliate Program for free and is open to everyone, regardless if you have a website hosted at Doteasy!

So, be sure to check out this awesome way to make money by visiting our website.
