We love our customers who have helped us a lot through the early stages of our business. Almost all our growth has been through word of mouth. So we decided to give something back to our community. Today we announce our referral program.
Unlike affiliate and referral programs by other larger hosts, we decided to help the smaller businesses. And give our users an exceptional opportunity to earn a recurring income.
So without using too much of your time, we will explain the details of how it works.
How does it work?
Refer your friends or other new users to Hustly, and earn steady recurring commissions. Earn up to $100 for each customer you refer.
Simply login to your Hustly account, click on the top-right navigation link, and navigate to “Refer A Friend”. Alternatively, once you are logged in, visit the link : https://app.hustly.website/refer-a-friend
You will find your unique referral link. Share this link with your friends, social media followers or other interested users. Every time someone signs up for a Hustly hosting plan using your link, you will receive a 20% commission payout. The users you refer to us, will receive a 10% lifetime discount on the Hustly hosting plans they sign up for.
How do I get paid?
Once a user signs up for a Hustly hosting plan, you will see the details of the plans they signed up for, and your commission rates, in the same page where you found your referral link.
You will be eligible to receive your commission payments, 60 days after your referred users have started their 30 day free trial. After the first 30 days, your referred users will make their first payment to Hustly. You will be eligible to receive your first commission, after another 30 days – so a total of 60 days. The 60 day period allows us to avoid paying out commission for fraudulent sign-ups.
If your users sign up for a yearly plan, your commissions will accrue annually. If your users sign up for a monthly plan, your commissions will accrue monthly. You will be eligible to receive a maximum of $100 for every customer you refer. We have a minimum payout policy of $50.
To get paid, you will need a valid PayPal account, or an internationally recognized bank account. All payouts exclude tax, and reporting tax liabilities and complying with your local tax laws; is your responsibility. Please note that for all referral, commissions, and payout related disputes, we reserve the full rights to settle all disputes.

Why is the Hustly Referral program the best?
We spent a lot of time designing our Referral program to ensure it doesn’t become yet another winner-takes-all referral program, and help out the smaller affiliate marketers who are just getting started. Some of the major benefits of our referral program are:
- We are not first click based: Unlike other hosting affiliate and referral programs, we are not “first click based”. A first click based affiliate program always favors the established affiliate networks over new players. For new affiliate and referral marketers, it always becomes difficult to find customers who will discover a brand through their channels first. It can take years to compete with an established website.
With our program, all you need to ensure is that users who view your content, use your referral link. The 10% discount that customers receive, is a great incentive for customers to sign up.
- Recurring payments: We pay you as your referred customers pay us. This means that once you refer a customer to us, you can expect to get paid for that customer for a long time. This ensures that you can sit back and relax, and see the commissions hit your bank account.
- We are a great service: Our hosting service is second to none, especially at our price point. You will find it easy to convince customers to use Hustly. See why we believe Hustly is the best WordPress hosting provider out there.
- We don’t compete with you: We never run sales or discounts that compete with you. This ensures that your potential customers will be incentivized to use your referral link.
- We make it easy for you to have your own blogs: We are a great and easy to use hosting service. That implies that you can simply use our service to host your blogs and websites, rather than paying for expensive and subpar hosting services.
- We don’t have a lengthy whitelisting process: All you need to do to get started is to sign up for an account. As soon as you sign up, your referral code becomes available to you. This means you never have to wait to get whitelisted. There is no requirement for you to pay for any of our plans to get started with our referral program. The free account is good enough.
