In addition to some advertising, Host Shopper earns referral commissions if you purchase hosting from several of the web hosting companies via our site. This is known as affiliate marketing. This is very common on the Internet, especially in the hosting industry.
When you click a link to visit or buy a hosting plan on Host Shopper, a special cookie will be created to track the referral. If you end up purchasing, the hosting company will pay us a referral fee. It's just like a salesman getting paid a commission for selling a product. We use the income generated to pay for server and development costs for the website. Without it, we wouldn't be able to offer the information and tools that we do.
It doesn't cost you any more to use the referral links on our site but it does help us pay the bill so your support is greatly appreciated!
