(The Hosting News) – The Planet, the global leader in IT hosting, has furthered the expansion of its Partner Plus Program by formally joining the Commission Junction affiliate network. A leading provider of affiliate marketing solutions, Commission Junction’s extensive network of publishers expands The Planet’s visibility among Web-based buyers.
With the increasing popularity of cap-ex-free IT and cloud computing, The Planet offers Web content publishers the ability to profitably reference the company’s broad range of solutions. The Planet advertiser program through Commission Junction offers solutions that range from affordable dedicated servers to fully managed hosting. The Planet pays affiliates an industry-leading, one-time $150 commission for each newly referred customer who completes a Web purchase.
“With this partnership, we’re enhancing our visibility among the Web’s biggest influencers,” said Tom Blair, vice president of global sales for The Planet. “Consumers look to these sources for input and advice on IT and hosting solutions, and The Planet will be front and center in this community. Last week we expanded our partner program for resellers, and combined with today’s announcement, we’re making it easier than ever for customers and partners to do business with us. Throughout 2010 we plan even more additions that will set The Planet apart as the industry’s best partner program.”
