    Web hosting is a very competitive niche. I would highly recommend you start reading everything you can on the subject of affiliate marketing. Then study your future competitors sites and see what they do and figure why they are doing it the way they do.

    Start a swipe file and add ever thing that catches your eye to it for future reference.

    Rob pretty much said it best.
    The best thing you can do to begin with is study ever piece of material you can find on affiliate marketing long before you decide on what to do with yourself online

    Do a review site of some of the popular web hosting companies. Apply to become their affiliate 1st. This method works well. Incorporate this into artlcles that you can published. Or do videos that you upload to YouTube. In a nutshell that is what I would do.

    I agree with you but as Rob said, web hosting is very competitive so it is hard to success with this way. Anyway, it is also a way to apply but for me to succeed with it, we need more efforts and investments for a review site.
    Instead of a review of hosting companies, I would suggest to build a hosting tutorial site, which helps users first before thinking of ways to earn with it.

    Thought I would add more to the conversation. One of the best ways I have found to sell web hosting is to...

    Create a product or tutorial that needs web hosting to complete. Then recommend a hosting company from within the product using your affiliate link. Have all instructions and step by steps, use this web hosting company in the examples. Even mention that you will be using this web hosting company in all examples.

    Also, don't try to sell a lot of different web hosts. Select 1 or 2 you are willing to put your reputation on the line for.

    If you're actually into hosting, start a blog. Review sites honestly, not just puff pieces to get commissions. Build a brand. Hard to make it in the hosting affiliate biz if you just want to arbitrage traffic and buy ads, so you're better off building something yourself. Or trying at least.

    YouTube, plain and simple. Anyone can learn anything they want on YouTube, although, the hard part is deciphering what's actually legitimate versus illegitimate information. Web hosting is very competititve and unless you have a ton of clients doesn't make what it used to due to the overall cost of hosting being so cheap.

    If you do decide to stick with hosting, it's best to offer plenty of other services to upsell unless you have the branding like one of the bigger names out there.

    Scott.
