BWF Affiliate Scheme

BWF Affiliate Scheme

It’s Autumn…It’s cold outside – Start your BWF Holiday Fund Today!

We’re proud at Big Wet Fish that we have grown the company from our humble beginnings into what it is today – a supplier of web hosting to thousands of clients in over 50 countries.  Much of our growth over the years has been down to word of mouth recommendations and we will never take that for granted.

For this reason our Affiliate Scheme is one of the most generous in the industry.  Many web hosts give a one off larger payment for a referral which, on the face of things may look attractive, but we take a much more long term approach.  

“Any client you refer to us who purchases a hosting product via your affiliate link we reward you with 15% recurring commission.”  

This means if this client renews with us for 5 years you get 15% of that renewal for the full five years.

Here’s how it works:

  • Log into your client area and activate your affiliate URL
  • Give that URL to anyone you want to refer to us – Facebook it, Tweet it, share it on your website etc
  • Any signups gets added to your affiliate account
  • You get a monthly email telling you how much cash you have available.
  • You can check your balance and active referrals at any time from your client area

What’s Included?

We only pay affiliate where clients are paying retail price for plans from our website or where clients are paying legacy pricing on plans that used to be available on our website.  We do not pay affiliate on any custom hosting plans not generally available on our website.  Web Hosting, Domain Names. Multi Site Accounts, Weebly Site Builder Accounts, VPS Servers, Dedicated Servers, Remote Management Services, Remote Backup Services are all included.

What’s Excluded?

Software Licenses such as cPanel, Softaculous, R1Soft, SpamExperts. are excluded from the affiliate scheme.

Is Affiliate Cash available right away?

You can use your affiliate money as hosting credit right away.  This can be applied off any current or future invoice.  Just choose the withdraw option in your client area and a member of our team will help you out.  If you prefer to take your affiliate credit as cash we simply ask you to wait 60 days.

Is there any upper limit?

You can refer as many clients as you can get to sign up.  We have some clients who make in excess of £300 per month from referrals.
