The signup form is divided into three different Sections; Personal Information, Additional Information and Payout Methods.
Under the “Personal Information” section, you will be required to enter your email address (which will be your username), first and last name, and your desired affiliate ID (your affiliate ID will be used on your referral links). If someone referred you to the program you can enter their affiliate ID under the Referrer ID section and you will become their sub- affiliate which will reward them with second-tier commissions.
Once you have filled out your personal information, you must provide a valid email address and your website’s URL. If you do not have a website, you can indicate “no website”; however, please remember that all applications require manual approval and not having a website for review may delay approval of your application.
The next section will allow you to choose how you would like to get paid. We understand the need for different payment options and we allow our affiliates to get paid by PayPal, check, hosting credits towards a Lunarpages account or bank wire transfer (wire transfers are available only in increments of $500 or more). You may change your preferred payment method any time through the affiliate panel.

With the Lunarpages Affiliate Program, our affiliates have the option to promote either one product or multiple products simultaneously. Our current program includes eleven different campaigns (Starter hosting, Basic hosting, Windows hosting, Quicksite, Business hosting, VPS hosting, Dedicated hosting, Microsoft exchange, Reseller hosting, Scalable Cloud and Domain names), each with its own payout structure based on the price of the product.
Moreover, we are constantly working on creating new marketing material to help our affiliates promote Lunarpages and increase their conversions. It is our top priority to make sure our affiliates have all of the necessary tools to promote Lunarpages.Back to Top
As mentioned before, our affiliate program is divided into eleven different campaigns – each with its own payout structure and related marketing material.
You can view the complete list of campaigns by opening the “Promotion” section and clicking on the “Campaigns” sub-section. This will show you the campaigns for which you are automatically qualified. Clicking on the name of the campaign will show you a brief overview of the product and provide a link to the related banners and the base commission for that campaign.Back to Top
To access the available banners and other marketing material, click on “Banners & Links” under the Promotion section. This will display a filter box that allows you to view the available material or search for a specific creative based on your criteria.
Using the different banners to promote Lunarpages is as easy as clicking on the “Get banner code” button below the desired banner and then copying and pasting that code to the page you wish the banner to be displayed. You can also use our social plug-ins below the banners to directly share or tweet your affiliate link from your dashboard.
Clicks and conversions are tracked through advanced tracking cookies.Back to Top
A very effective way to enhance your affiliate campaigns is to know which advertisements are working better for you. Use our “Ad Channels” tool in the Promotion section to start creating different tracking channels. To start, simply create a new channel for every link placement you would like to see. In the banners section, choose the link version with the channel appended. The channel parameter will be transferred to the tracked commission, so you will know exactly what link led to the commission.
- the best placement for the banner on your website – using the same banner with a different channel for every position will let you know which one is clicked more often or has better Click-Through-Rate (CTR).
- PPC campaigns – creating multiple PPC ads for the same affiliate link with a unique channel for every ad, you can see which ad converts more.
Our affiliate system provides some of the most advanced reporting tools available in the affiliate marketing industry. We know how important it is to have clear reports and statistics, so we have provided our affiliates with a section that contains different types of reports.
Lunarpages provides quick stats, trends, commission details, raw clicks, payouts, channel stats and top referrer URLs reports. Affiliates have the ability to export these reports to .csv files where they can use the data to further analyze their affiliate efforts.Back to Top
One of the most useful reports we offer our affiliates is the Trends Report. To access this report, simply click on “Trends Report” under the Reports section. This report makes it easier and faster to interpret your data by providing different types of charts as well as an advanced filter to specify the criteria for the report. You can also select the type of data you would like to see displayed (sales, clicks and commissions).Back to Top
The Lunarpages Channel Stats Report allows you to retrieve very specific data in regards to the various channels you manually created for your different campaigns. The “Channel Stats Report” is located in the Reports section and allows you to fully customize the information displayed.
Once you have accessed the Channel Stats Report section, use the advanced search option to run the campaign and date specific reports with the option to compare data elements such as raw impressions, unique impressions, raw clicks, unique clicks, CTR raw, CTR unique, sales count, sales total and commissions earned.Back to Top
