PFA is funded through affiliate commissions.
We may earn a commission from some of the services and products that are recommended on this website.
The way it works is if you click one of our affiliate links and then go on to purchase from one of the hosting services and/or website builders listed on our site, including:
- A2 Hosting – a2hosting.com
- Bluehost – bluehost.com
- Constant Contact – constantcontact.com
- Dreamhost – dreamhost.com
- GoDaddy – godaddy.com
- HostGator – hostgator.com
- Hostinger – hostinger.com
- inMotion Hosting – inmotionhosting.com
- iPage – ipage.com
- SendInBlue – sendinblue.com
- Site123 – site123.com
- SiteBuilder – sitebuilder.com
- SiteGround – siteground.com
- Wix – wix.com
- Wpx – wpxhosting.com
Why do we use affiliate links?
The primary reason is that PFA is a business venture. While we love providing great information it does take a lot of time and effort to do the research and present the results. Affiliate commissions help us earn a living while doing what we love. Here is more information on affiliate marketing from the FTC if you are interested.
Second, using affiliate programs lets us keep the site from being cluttered up with ads. We want the info we provide to be easily accessible, and personally hate trying to find an answer online that is buried under popups and videos.
Finally, we genuinely feel that these products are worth promoting. We’ve been working online for decades, and recognize that not all services are created equal. If we recommend a product or service it is because we’ve used it and found it worth sharing.
Do earning commissions influence our ratings and reviews?
No, earning a commission does not impact our reviews or how we rate services on this site.
You can read more about how we rank hosting services here.
We offer real reviews rather than puff marketing pieces, which means that many of our reviews contain both pros and cons. So don’t just skim – read through the reviews for the good and bad bits. And feel free to read other reviews online – what worked well for our needs might not for you, so getting a second opinion is just smart.
Why are we telling you this?
Like you we’ve seen our fair share of fake reviews. We don’t begrudge people being compensated for their efforts and opinions, as long as they are legit. So we want to be upfront with our readers about why we do what we do.
Does purchasing through an affiliate link cost you more money?
Nope. In most cases the pricing to you is exactly the same regardless of how you get to the service providers site, and in a few instances you actually get a discount by clicking one of our links because we’ve negotiated a discount. So click with confidence, knowing you’ll get a good deal if you decide to buy.
