Affilorama Premium Membership- Now Includes Hosting!

Premium members are a special part of the Affilorama family. And we are always looking for ways to make them feel even more special. So we're really excited to announce another perk for Premium members – a comprehensive web hosting service.

Premium Hosting is now available for all current Premium members and adds to the existing benefits, which include full access to all the Affilorama Tools, iPod or iPhone video downloads, the monthly Premium magazine and site reviews by our trained staff.

No doubt you have a few questions so I'll try to answer them here. If I haven't covered your question here, feel free to email us through our support page or post a comment below.

Who can access Premium Hosting?
All current Affilorama Premium members. If you are not currently a member, visit http://www.affilorama.com/premium to sign up.

What is included with Premium Hosting?
The hosting service is a fully-featured hosting package with all the features you'd expect in a top of the line web host.
You can register up to 15 separate domains and for each domain you get:

    Disk space: 2GB
    Monthly traffic bandwidth: 75GB
    Subdomains: 10 e.g. forums.example.com, members.example.com
    Email Addresses: 10 plus a catch-all option so you can use any email address for that domain
    MySQL Databases: 10
    FTP Accounts: 10

Other features include:
    Choose support for PHP4 or PHP5
    Up to 10 different automated replies for your email addresses
    Up to 3 scheduled tasks
    Easily create redirects to hide affiliate links
    Over 500 website templates to choose from
    Software valued at over $500 including password managers, JavaScript tools for your site and JavaScript compression for faster site loading
    Thousands of stock imagery, clipart, banners, logos and web art you can use
    One-click installation for popular programs like WordPress
    FrontPage Extensions Support
    Plus more

Why would I choose this hosting service?
Apart from all the features, there are a couple of things that really make this a standout service.

Super easy to setup – Hosting has never been this easy. Simply enter your domain name and click Activate. Then update your domain name register to point to our nameservers and you're done! You'll receive an email with all the necessary information and you're good to go.

Part of the great Premium membership package – It's all part of a valuable suite of productivity tools designed specifically for affiliate marketers. If you're serious about making your online business succeed, you'll find this a great investment.

What do I need to do to transfer my existing website?
It isn't difficult to switch from your existing host. Firstly you'll need to sign up with Affilorama Premium and activate your hosting account.

    1 - Access your existing website and backup to your local drive (there is usually an option in your cPanel to do this)
    2 - Using the FTP details emailed to you when you activated your Premium Hosting account, upload your website
    3 - Update the DNS settings (e.g. at GoDaddy or Namecheap) to point your domain name to the new nameservers emailed to you
    4 - Allow up to 24 hours (usually much quicker) for the change to take effect
    5 - When your site is operational on the new host you can then cancel your old hosting account (and save $$)
What happens to my website if I cancel my Premium membership?
If for some reason you want to cancel your membership, your hosting account will also be canceled. However you will still be able to download your website files for a limited time afterwards. Of course, it is recommended practice for any website that you have a regular backup procedure in place.

How do I sign up for Premium Hosting?
Existing Premium members: Visit http://www.affilorama.com/premium/hosting. Read the terms and conditions and activate your domain(s).

Not a Premium member yet? - Visit http://www.affilorama.com/premium and sign-up today!

I have more questions!? Send an email to us through our support page or post your comment below.

This is excellent Simon.
Free website hosting for premium members is awsome.
I have a funny feeling the premium membership is going to get a lot better over the next few weeks.

We have closed premium to new members as we are working on some new and pretty cool features.

Current members will be able to see them from next week hopefully (hosting is currently available to existing premium members).

New members will be able to join Premium again from 24th November.

Sign-up here to be first to experience the new premium: http://www.affilorama.com/premium-report

Hi,
I'm new (very) and was wondering if the decision to host with the Premium-included-hosting or hosting for my own account with (what I just learned) e.g. Hostgator will make a difference in search results in google etc.? Could the hosting affect in any way search results or am I looking for trouble where there is none?
Just wondering as I guess it's an important decision from the start where to host all the stuff and free is always attractive ;-)
Many thanks, best regards.

Hi afilthy, welcome to Affilorama!
Where you host your website does not affect your site's ranking at all. It will be the quality of the content on your site that will determine your site's rank to a large extent.

Hi Everyone!
Just registered *another* domain name a few days ago and thought I'd give the new premium hosting a try.

Added the site, changed nameservers, etc., but when I try to install Wordpress within the root directory via Affilorama hosting it says the following:

"There was a problem installing the requested script. Please make sure that the directory you are installing to is empty."

I've not added any files whatsoever - like I said, brand new domain nothing on it yet.

Any ideas?

Hi Smartguy,
Affilorama hosting is the same as any other hosting.
If you want to export the homestead template then you will need to ask the homestead support guys how to do it.
They have a forum and you could ask there if it is possible to export your site from homestead into your own hosting.

Thanks Troy - I knew those were there - just got confused when Simon had posted that they were listed at the top - ...

Thought they had their own new tab or something.

Thanks for the update.

For anyone else who is interested...

The reason for the issue was that there was a default index.html file in the root directory. After removing that file (via FTP), wordpress installed correctly.

However when using the link via Affilorama hosting to enter the wp-admin area and set up wordpress, the link added an extra slash to the end of the domain name which made it appear as though it were broken.

To fix that, enter your domain name in the address bar, and then head directly to wp-admin (if you installed Wordpress in your root directory). EG: www.SomeSite.com/wp-admin/

You can then follow along with the directions and it will finish installation of wordpress on your domain.

Hi guys,

I'm new to affilorama and am really looking forward to taking full advantage of all the cool stuff. I especially like the free hosting and to be honest, it was the icing that made me buy the cake.

I am wondering though, if their is some kind of allowance if for some reason ones site exceeds the allocated bandwidth. For example, say a site goes through the roof and the traffic is for-nominal (wishful thinking), can we purchase more bandwidth and if so, at what cost?

This scenario might well be highly unlikely, but I'm just a newbie with possibly unrealistic expectations. Thought I'd ask anyway.

Cheers everyone!

Kev.

Hi Troy,

I can only see 3 issues of the Magazines, not 8. Should I go somewhere else to see the rest?

Thank you,

I could be wrong, but I think maybe the Premium magazine is timed to when you sign up for premium. Maybe? I've had a premium membership for just over two months and just got my 3rd issue, and that's all I have access to.
