I often get enquires from people who are looking for dedicated servers, and they ask my suggestion on who to use. I am currently looking for any New Zealand ones that pay referrers for referring a successful client to them. I have contacted a few NZ ones, but none that I have contacted so far , do this. Instead they will only offer 'reseller' arrangements, where they bill me directly and I have to provide all the technical support, which is not the arrangement I want.

I currently have an arrangement with one in the USA that does pay for referrals, but some of the people who contact me, want NZ based servers. Anyone aware of any New Zealand providers that pay for referrals?

billgates: Hosting Direct does but their customer service is rubbish.



Thanks Bill, I didn't even bother to try them, because of the bad reviews on their support I have read, and their website looks quite cheap and amateurish. They also look to target the 'low cheap end' market. I would be looking at more a middle of the road to upper end company.

I would want to be referring these people to a provider that provides excellent support, otherwise I would get complaints from them, for referring them to them. The USA provider I use does provide excellent support, but I would like to support a NZ company. Just that there doesn't seem to be too many NZ providers around that does referrals of has an affiliate system.

Thanks but those are all appear to web hosting providers, and not server providers.   I am looking for Dedicated server provider, not a web host.

Thanks. Yes I contacted them a few days ago, but haven't yet had a reply, although it also looks like they many only pay referral fees for web hosting and domains.
