There are over 45 million domain names registered1 in cyberspace and while some like yahoo.com and ebay.com are seemingly permanent fixtures, thousands turnover or are newly registered every day. The vast majority of these will be registered through and hosted by a third-party web-hosting service. While basic services generally run about $10 a month, advanced hosting can cost considerably more, and when thousands of users sign $100+ annual contracts every day, it's easy to see why web-hosting accounts for a considerable portion of the over 1.2 billion ($ US) of revenue2 generated on the Internet each year.
As you might imagine, web-hosting services operate in an incredibly competitive space, and Upstart Raising is certainly not going to suggest that you open up a hosting shop, not even if you have the technical expertise and capital to take such a bold step. Instead, we're going to show you how you can earn a slice of this lucrative and growing market with a minimal cash investment.
To execute this strategy, you need your own online presence, so the first step is to setup your own website. Refer to our Establishing an Online Presence report for details.
Next you need to identify potential web-hosting partners from the hundreds of services advertised across the Internet. Luckily, Upstart Raising has done the dirty work here as well.

We've even provided links to the appropriate sign-up pages allowing you to join these top quality affiliate programs effortlessly!
