§ 2. Affiliate Links and Coupons
As an affiliate, you earn compensation by generating clicks to our site that convert to a completed sale. After you have been accepted into the Program you may display affiliate links on your site.

The affiliate link is sent to you after the approval of the application. If a person clicks on someone else’s referral link and then later they click on yours, yours is the one that counts.

You might or might not be assigned a discount with details and usage sent out via email. If a customer clicks on the affiliate link with the assigned discount, you will receive a commission based on the discounted price. If you’re not assigned a coupon by DatHost then you’re not allowed to promote one.

You are solely responsible for the placement, content, and style of each affiliate link that you place on your site, social media, or for other use for promoting our services, and for ensuring that your affiliate links include the appropriate formatting necessary for us to properly allocate referrals of customers to your account.
