How did you begin at WPX?

As a fresh graduate in Marketing & PR, I was passionate about the creative presentation of products and ideas. I dedicated my thesis to fashion and supported it with my own hand-crafted items; I have always been interested in fashion as an instrument for expressing ideas and building identity.

I was just a step away from diving deeper into deconstructing fashion through a PHD, when I found myself in a quaint, colourful office in the heart of Sofia. I was welcomed by a small and smiling team, all working together to run a business quite unfamiliar to me; I thought to myself, “Well, this sounds like a challenge!

That’s how it all started nearly 4 years ago. With our small team now thrice its original size, the vibrant, tiny office has become an even bigger and brighter place. Our lovely golden retriever mascot, ‘The Famous Joey’, maintains the office’s positive vibes and keeps our spirits high.

Working in the digital marketing world is an exciting and rewarding experience; the daily challenges keep me motivated and push me to learn new things. Testing new tactics and opportunities teaches you how to easily adapt to the latest trends in the market.

Being part of this team has given me priceless experience and I’m glad to be a part of this innovative and growing business, as well as to improve myself both professionally and personally.

What is your philosophy on life?

A good life is built with good relationships.

Being positive, tolerant, and respecting each others’ opinions and perspectives is the only way to build a valuable social environment, both inside and outside of the office.

What do you like about working here?

The casual office atmosphere, the friendly people, and the dynamic, new projects. I also love the freedom to give ideas and think big, the opportunity to grow and learn, and our charming building nestled in the corner of Sofia’s centre.

I love riding my bike to work and at the end of the day, I can unwind and enjoy the cosy bars and restaurants, cultural centres, and events around. There’s even a yoga studio right across the street! We have cool team building events and I appreciate the fact that I don’t have to sacrifice my social life.

What do you like to do outside the office?

I’m a yoga enthusiast! I also love to travel and my dream is to venture from the Himalayas, through Laos and Thailand, and into Cambodia.

I love food, good food, so I enjoy experimenting with different recipes in the kitchen. Sometimes I find myself digging around on Pinterest for home décor and indie fashion boards to inspire me.

I love European cinema (especially Italian film) and I’m quite sceptical of blockbusters (No, I haven’t watched Game of Thrones and I don’t plan on starting!).

Any curious facts you’d like to share?

The beautiful city of Venice is a forbidden destination for me sadly, because pigeons really scare me! What a pity...

Also, my great-grandfather was a painter and was (thankfully!) among the survivors of the Titanic disaster!

You can only use a discount coupon when you are signing up for your new hosting plan.

If a user you have referred to us uses a discount coupon, we must extend the review period to prevent fraud.

All sales you make are in “quarantine” for at least 120 days. We need this time to ensure the sale is valid and there is no affiliate fraud. You will be paid in full after this period.

The price rate is as follows:

Business Plan (5 website installs)           - $24.99

Professional Plan (15 website installs)  - $49.99

Elite Plan (35 website installs)                - $99

Download the materials you like. Upload them to your WordPress site either on the homepage or on a specific WPX page you have made.

This very much depends on your audience and business nature. Post and promote when your followers are most active. In general, the beginning and end of business hours are good times for social engagement.

You can use your custom coupon code as many times as you want! Don’t worry, it will not run out.

Of course! There are no restrictions.

Yes, you can purchase a hosting account with one of our promotions. Please be aware that you cannot sign up for a hosting account using your own affiliate link or create multiple subscriptions only to move websites between them. This will not be allowed.

Affiliate commissions are paid out based on your total number of sales. The commission growth rate (applicable for Business, Professional and Elite plans) can be seen below:

1-25 sales  

$70/sale

26-100 sales  

$85/sale

101+ sales  

$100/sale

Yes, you are. To use your own media, you are required to give us notice before it goes live and pending our approval.

Commissions are an income source and should be treated and reported as such according to the local law in your place of business.

We provide the most common and best-converting banner sizes. If you would like another one, please feel free to create one but remember to notify us first and send a copy too.

Once you successfully bring 5 new clients to WPX, please get in touch with us and we can consider creating a custom landing page for you.

If you have a neat idea for a new banner, please get in touch and we will discuss its execution. Our team is always on hand to help.

Payments are made once in a calendar month. If you would like your balance to be paid sooner please request a withdraw from the Stats menu.

The benefits of being a WPX affiliate are that you can earn great commissions and you refer your audience to a premium service.  Recommending WPX Hosting can only bolster your online reputation and skyrocket your commission.

Affiliate program is essentially a mutually beneficial deal whereby you recommend a service (WPX Hosting) to your friends, family and audience via unique codes. If any of those people decide to sign up for the service (WPX Hosting), you receive a commission!

No, Affiliate links are set and cannot be changed.

No, you are not required to have an account with WPX to be an Affiliate. We highly recommend however, that you test our service and see for yourself the service you are promoting to your audience. This will lead to a more genuine Affiliate experience.

WPX Affiliates enjoy great (and growing) commissions (above industry standards) and benefit from associating with an amazing hosting service. Connect your audience to a great hosting solution like ours and they will be grateful for ever.

No, there are no restrictions for participation based on your geographical location.

The only skills you really need are those needed to communicate to your audience. Whether you’re a web entrepreneur, a tech vlogger, copy writer, a marketing specialist or whatever specialty you have arrived at.

To communicate clearly is the goal – so brushing up on your writing and speaking skills will be important if you plan to blog/vlog or get involved in your given community.

Some general IT skills will be necessary to operate and maintain a website as well as some marketing skills to understand how best to communicate deals and offers to your audience.

No, there are no limitations to the commissions you can earn.

Yes, Custom Promo Codes can be requested via support ticket or email to iva@wpxhosting.com.

WPX Hosting Affiliate Program Terms & Conditions

The following Terms and Conditions (T&C, Terms, or Agreement) apply to your participation in the Affiliate Program offered by WPX Hosting (WPX, we, us, our) or any of our affiliate entities.

This Affiliate Program is designed to allow you (the Affiliate) to promote WPX Hosting's services, with the goal of referring new hosting clients to WPX and earning commissions as a result (as described in this T&C). These Terms and Conditions incorporate by reference our Terms of Service and our Privacy Policy too.

By registering as an Affiliate, you are agreeing to the Terms and Conditions. If you do not agree, you are not permitted to participate in this Affiliate Program.

1. Joining our Affiliate Program

WPX Hosting Affiliate program is open for both customers and non-customers. You can create an account here, or request access though a support ticket or email to iva@wpxhosting.com.

WPX Hosting reserves the right to revoke requested or current affiliate access due to non-compliance with the Terms of Service.

2. Your Responsibilities

As a WPX Hosting Affiliate, you agree that:

  • Affiliates who attempt to purchase hosting on WPX for themselves through their own affiliate link will NOT be entitled to an affiliate commission. This action may also result in the affiliate being permanently suspended from the WPX Hosting affiliate program i.e. it's a form of affiliate fraud.
  • It is your responsibility to provide us with full and accurate account information and to keep that information up to date.
    Account information includes (but is not limited to): contact details, all websites addresses where WPX Hosting will be featured in your Affiliate Promotion, promotional practices and means, payment details, tax information as well as any other details we may require.
    Failure to include any of the above information may result in exclusion from our Affiliate Program, or even suspension or termination of your Affiliate account and forfeiture of any commissions.
  • You should act in good faith to refer customers in good standing. Avoid customers who may be flagged for fraud risk, cannot provide valid contact information, have active accounts that exceed their monthly hosting limitations, or are inactive users overall.
    Avoid taking actions or making recommendations that results in potential revenue loss for WPX Hosting.
  • You should avoid using any copyrighted or third-party material without the proper licenses, this applies to your referrals as well.
  • You may not use your own Affiliate discount links to create new hosting accounts for yourself.
  • You should leave icons, buttons, banners, graphics, files, or content found in WPX Hosting's links alone and refrain from editing, altering, or modifying them without written approval from us.
  • You should not engage in any blackhat SEO/spam link building practises to generate more referrals. Nobody likes that.
  • You must abide by any applicable laws, follow local etiquette, and you must disclose the affiliate relationship with WPX Hosting on your website.
  • You should be loyal and considerate to WPX Hosting and should not misuse its confidence nor damage its reputation.
  • The only hosting plans you may refer customers to are the Business, Professional, and Elite hosting plans, as listed on WPX's Plans & Pricing page on the main website.
  • You will NOT copy the WPX Hosting website for affiliate marketing purposes OR register/use any domain where wpxhosting - or a variation of it - is part of the root domain name as this may mislead potential customers about the ownership of that site.

If we detect any behaviour that, in our reasonable opinion, violates any of the above points (or any aspect of the Terms and Conditions) we reserve the right to suspend or even terminate your Affiliate account and cancel all outstanding commission payments due.

3. Affiliate Advertising

Please only use our approved promotional materials (found in your Media Centre) when promoting WPX Hosting. Approved materials contain the WPX Hosting trade name as well as our logo for display on your Affiliate Site and slogans.

The material in your Media Centre is available for you to download and use for your promotional projects on websites owned, operated or controlled by WPX Hosting. If there are any promotional materials that you feel are missing from our Media Centre, or are interested in your own marketing media, please contact us and we will discuss the possibility of customised promotional material.

Please follow the guidelines below when advertising and promoting WPX Hosting:

  • Do not promote WPX Hosting using non-unique, copyright infringing content or via spam or unsolicited emails, unauthorised linking in forums, newsgroups, or message boards, etc.
  • Do not bid on keywords or phrases containing WPX Hosting (including misspellings or variations of this trademark) on Pay per Click campaigns with Google, Yahoo, Bing, MSN, or other Search Engines without our written approval.
  • You cannot provide any cash-back, coupons, vouchers, rewards (or any other kind of price-saving methods or incentives) to your audience to gain sales without our approval.
  • Do not use our promotional material (including our name and logo) in any way that would negatively affect our company image or philosophy.
  • Only track your affiliate commissions by the actual click-through methods provided and nothing else.
  • Please conduct your Affiliate marketing in line with our normal Terms of Service. To highlight an example, please do not market us via websites that we explicitly forbid in our ToS, such as those with pornographic, bigoted, or any other kind of objectional content that we have outlined.
  • Keep your own business and ours separate; your own domain name, company logo, trademark, etc must not contain keywords or phrases containing “WPX Hosting”, including any misspelled or confusingly similar names/keywords/phrases. Please ask for permission before making such decisions.

As explained earlier, failure to comply to any of the above guidelines (or any aspect of the Terms and Conditions) can result in your removal from the WPX Hosting Affiliate Program.

4. Affiliate Tracking Cookies

Affiliate commissions are tracked automatically using cookies. The cookies are placed in the browser of the user that clicks on the affiliate link to reach our website. Each cookie is stored for 60 days. If there is a previous affiliate cookie in the same user's browser the new cookies will overwrite it. WPX Hosting is not responsible for cookies intentionally deleted by users.

5. Affiliate Commissions

You will receive commission per-sale for any valid referrals to WPX Hosting. The commission rates for Affiliates (applicable for Business, Professional and Elite plans) are as follows:

  • 1 → 25 sales = $70 per sale
  • 26 → 100 sales = $85 per sale
  • 101+ sales = $100 per sale

Below are guidelines to clarify a valid sale:

  • Your active referral efforts have resulted in a sale, whereby the customer arrived at our website, ready to purchase, via your Affiliate link – as indicated by a cookie.
  • At the time of sale, your Affiliate account was active.
  • The referred customer is new to our hosting service and is not a current affiliate partner.
  • The sale was for our Business, Professional or Elite plan at any billing cycle.
  • The customer completed their purchase without any (outside) assistance from you (the Affiliate) whatsoever.
  • After the sale, the referred customer has maintained an active account.
  • Referred customers whose accounts are then cancelled or suspended by WPX Hosting after 4-5 months are still eligible for commission. If however, the customer's account was cancelled sooner than the 4-5-month cap, commissions are not eligible.
  • The initial order (and other renewal payments) are fully processed and therefore not subject to refunds or chargebacks.
  • Affiliate commissions will only be paid on the FIRST hosting order referred to WPX Hosting by an affiliate and NOT any SUBSEQUENT hosting purchases thereafter.

Affiliate commissions will only be paid when our tracking system (used by many hosting companies) registers that an affiliate link has been clicked on and a subsequent hosting subscription has been successfully created by the new user coming to us via that link. If no click is recorded, then no commission is payable. These measures help protect our genuine affiliates and are necessary to prevent affiliate fraud.

We reserve the right to mark any sale as invalid at our own discretion, without providing any explanation or justification.

6. Commission Payments

You (the Affiliate) will receive all commissions in the form and currency as described on the Affiliate Program signup page, unless you have come to an alternate agreement with us.

Your commissions will be paid out ONLY via PayPal and after a holding period of 30-150 consecutive days (this is to protect against fraud). This holding period may be extended, as is our right, if we deem it necessary to prevent fraud.

These commissions are paid out once per month or less often should you wish to withdraw from your Affiliate balance. You are solely responsible for any transaction fees when you receive affiliate commissions, as well as keeping all your information up to date (such as email and postal address, tax information, etc).

Until all necessary information is accounted for and valid (including tax information), we will suspend commission pay-outs. The pay-outs for suspended commissions can be claimed up to 6 months after their original due payment date.

Bear in mind that if we suspect any fraudulent or other improper activity as a violation of these Terms and Conditions on behalf of yourself or the customers you refer, we may suspend your commission pay-outs at any time and for any period.

For all sales that are deemed fraudulent or improper, we reserve the right to deduct from your current and future commissions. We will send you a bill for the balance of such refunded purchase, where no future or current commissions are due, upon termination of either the Affiliate program or the customer account.

7. Invoicing

You will be given a statement of due commissions in your Affiliate Hub.

8. Relationship of the Parties

Both you (the Affiliate) and WPX Hosting (us) agree to enter this Agreement (T&C) as independent contractors only. Nothing in this Agreement will create any sort of partnership, relationship, or joint agency or franchise, etc, between the two parties.

Therefore, this also means that you have no authority to make or accept offers or representations, or to make statements (that would contradict anything said in this T&C), on behalf of WPX Hosting.

9. Account Termination

You may cancel your Affiliate account at any time, just contact us via your Affiliate Hub or via a Support Ticket. You will then receive written confirmation that your account has been terminated.

WPX Hosting can cancel an Affiliate account under the following conditions:

  • With a seven-day prior notice without explanation.
  • Immediately with no prior notice, if you or your affiliate account violate the Affiliate Program T&C.

Sales and commissions will no longer be tracked once the associated Affiliate account has been terminated. Pending pay-outs at the time of cancellation will still be paid to the Affiliate after the standard holding period. No pay-outs will be pending however, if the reason for your account termination was a violation of the T&C.

After you have cancelled your account, you (the Affiliate) will have 3 business days to remove all remaining WPX promotional material, links, logos, etc, from your website. After your account has been closed, you will no longer have the right to use the WPX Hosting trademark(s), logos, etc, as you previously did as an Affiliate.

Terminating your Affiliate account will also automatically terminate this Agreement.

10. Limitation of Liability

Here's the legal run-down:

YOU AGREE THAT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOU WILL NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, NEGLIGENCE, HOLD US OR OUR EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OFFICERS, LICENSORS AND/OR THIRD-PARTY VENDORS LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES WHATSOEVER INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, REVENUE, BUSINESS, COST SAVINGS, DATA OR USE, OR ANY OTHER PECUNIARY LOSS BY YOU OR ANY OTHER THIRD PARTY. YOU AGREE THAT THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS APPLY WHETHER IN AN ACTION IN CONTRACT OR TORT OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY AND APPLY EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL WE BE LIABLE TO YOU IN THE AGGREGATE WITH RESPECT TO ANY AND ALL BREACHES, DEFAULTS, OR CLAIMS OF LIABILITY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT OR UNDER ANY OTHER DOCUMENT FOR AN AMOUNT GREATER THAN THE FEES ACTUALLY PAID BY YOU TO US DURING THE ONE MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING A CLAIM GIVING RISE TO SUCH LIABILITY. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. YOU AGREE THAT IN THOSE JURISDICTIONS, OUR LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.

This provision shall survive termination of the Terms and Conditions.

11. Governing law
