How it works

Once you have registered as a TierraNet affiliate you will receive special coding to place on your website which you can use to sign up accounts. Everything will be branded to you, including:

  • Support pages
  • Customer service (through email support and a 24/7 toll-free masked phone number)
  • Billing (Credit card statements will reflect your brand)

The affiliate program allows you to set your own pricing, the monthly commission you receive is calculated by subtracting your base price from the price you charge your customers.

Your cost for domains will be determined by the expected domain sales volume. You can then set your domain price as you desire and your your commission will be the difference between the two.

You will receive a username and password which will allow you to access TierraNet's affiliate control panel. This area allows you to check your current status, see pending commissions, and recent distributions, and update the look and feel of your customers control panels. Affiliates will have access to administer their referred accounts in order to make site updates and perform other general maintenance.
