What is a Referral program?

Referral programs provide an opportunity to earn money through recommendations. Our referral program is an easy way to earn money by sharing what you love about Hostinger with your friends and network! You will get a 20% commission for each new successful sign-up, and your referral will get 20% off their purchase.

Unlike the Affiliate program, you don't require any online presence or a large audience, you can simply share links with your contacts who you think would be interested in using our hosting services.

How to use it

You can start earning rewards easily by following these steps:

Let's go over each one in detail:

Step 1 - Join the program

Access the Referral section on hPanel by clicking on your Avatar and selecting Earn with us:

In the welcome screen, check the requirements for rewards and click Continue to add the PayPal account to which you want your rewards to be sent. Read the terms of service, check the box if you agree and click Join now:


  • In order to join the Referral Program, you need an active PayPal payment method. We will be adding the Referral Program option for other payment methods as well - keep an eye for updates on our Blog 😊

Step 2 - Share your referral links

In the Referral Program section, you will find two main ways to invite your friends:

  1. Invite your friends through email - here you can invite your friend via email

  2. Share through social media - here you can find your referral link and share it on the most popular social platforms

Step 3 - Check eligibility and receive your rewards

When your contacts use your referred link and are eligible, you will accumulate the reward. An eligible purchase is:

  • From a first-time customer – the person that you are referring must create their account at Hostinger while using the referral link. Already registered users (even if they have no prior services purchased) do not count as new users

  • Purchase of a new Shared, WordPress, Cloud or VPS hosting plan for at least 12 months using your referral link

  • The referred customer remains active for 45 days and does not request a refund

You can check the status of your pending rewards and the total earned through the program in the Referral Program section:

  1. Pending rewards - The accumulated amount to be applied to your Paypal account once you reach $50 and 45 days have passed since the purchase

  2. Total amount - All of your earnings through the Referral Program. Click on Check your progress for a detailed view of all your sent referrals

  3. Criteria - in this section you can find all of the criteria in order for you to be eligible for rewards and check the Terms of Service at any time

You can change at any time the Paypal account for receiving your rewards by following this guide: How to update your Paypal for the Referral Program.


  • Due to the time required for transaction processing, it may take an additional 1-2 days for any eligible rewards to reach your PayPal account after the 45-day period since the purchase has passed

What is the difference between referral and affiliate programs?

Our affiliate program is a great way to earn some money if you already have an audience of people following you (for example on social media, Youtube, and so on).

On the other hand, if you just want to invite some of your friends to use Hostinger services, our Referral Program is perfect for you. You can earn some cash, and your friends can get a complimentary discount at the checkout.
