Houston, Texas – (The Hosting News) – July 29, 2008 – The Planet privately held dedicated hosting company, has made enhancements to the commission structure of its affiliate program.
Registered affiliates will receive a one-time, 100 percent commission on the referred customer’s total monthly recurring order value.
James P. Treuting, Vice President of Sales and Operations with The Planet noted, ”Since our January launch, our affiliate program has seen tremendous success. Making these improvements to our already competitive commission structure is another way to thank our partners for referring customers to The Planet.”
