Earn commissions for domain registrations

In addition to cash prizes, you can earn commissions when someone purchases the domains you recommended.

Where do I start?

  1. Get your Publisher ID from Commission Junction. We recommend that you create a separate Publisher ID for NameStation so that you can easily track incoming clicks.
  2. Apply to the affiliate programs of domain and hosting compaines at CJ - such as GoDaddy, HostGator, 1 & 1 etc. Your application needs to be approved by those companies in order to receive commissions.
  3. Save your Publisher ID on NameStation's Affiliate Settings page.
  4. Post entries to Public Contests or Contribute to the Hand-Picked Domains Catalogue
    In domain search results, click Save to Contest and choose Contribute to the Hand-Picked Domains Catalogue from the dropdown menu

How does it work?

When any of the domains you posted is purchased, the registrar will pay you via CJ.

Available domain names at NameStation have Register at ... links. Clicking on those links sends users to their preferred registrar, such as GoDaddy, Yahoo!, 1 & 1, 123reg etc. You can earn commissions when someone purchases products or services from those companies, according to their terms at Commission Junction.

All payments are handled by the affiliate interface at Commission Junction. Purchases and domain registrations are handled by respective registrars, not NameStation.

Increasing Earnings with Name Lists

Create and share targeted lists of name ideas, which are served with your CJ Partner ID.

  1. Create a Contest, e.g. Restaurant name ideas
  2. Save relevant available domain name ideas to that Contest
  3. Send your List to anyone looking for name ideas. Find name requests in forums or on Twitter
  4. Create multiple niche Lists, add them to your website or blog via RSS

Where is your Publisher ID used on NameStation?

  • Domains you've recommended to Public Contests are served with your Publisher ID.
  • Domains you've contributed to the Public Catalogue are served with your Publisher ID.

The number of names you can recommend or contribute to the public per day is limited, so it's better to post creative ideas that have a higher chance of getting registered. Limits may be increased if people like your ideas and your Credit Points increase.

Why can't I see my Publisher ID being added to my name ideas?

It is against CJ's Terms of Service to make purchases via your own affiliate links, so you can't see your Publisher ID on your recommendations when you're signed in at NameStation. You can track clicks in the CJ affiliate management interface.

Where is your Publisher ID not used?

NameStation's revenue sharing scheme is intended to be an incentive to produce creative available domain names. Commissions can be earned primarily for creative hand-picked domain name ideas. Your Publisher ID is not served in real-time domain lookups and automated search results.
