There are so many hosts out there that do not even offer the basic of referral programs. I have a couple of sites that convert web hosting traffic well and I am looking for some good hosts to send traffic to. If you know of a good hosting affiliate program and would like to share please do. <Part removed by mod.> Thanks.
Why don't you looking for avertisers instead of joining affiliate programs. Most providers offer fantastic commissions but you receive your money about 40 - 60 days after the sale is made. sometimes you don't get it if a customer requires a refund.
I can only suggest you not to sign up with providers that offer commission higher than 25% of their sales revenue.
Really it isn't such a great idea to just try to find companies that offer good commissions. Usually the hosts with the best "value" factoring price, reliability, reputation, and feature set convert the best. Doesn't really matter if you make $100 per commission if the host never converts because it is crummy.
It's up to the hosting company to determine what they feel is fair to pay to their affiliates. Personally, I have converted well with some hosts that offer only 20% commissions but since the rate is so low it converts to very little money. I don't think there is any rule of thumb that you can set that says that an affiliate program that offers more than 20% is "bad". If the company wants to be more aggressive to attract affiliates and make the money up in the out years then it might be a smart practice for them. I've found very reputable web hosts that offer much better than 20%.

I totally agree. There are companies that offer $100 that havent converted for me yet and there are companies that offer $50 that have converted over 20 times on my sites. I just dont have access to enough programs to evaluate which are best. I have gone through cj.com and the usuals. I am just looking for some less known maybe on site, not through agencies.

There's a reason for that.
