I hope this newsletter finds you doing well enjoying the holiday season!
We've had an extremely busy last couple of weeks coming off Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so please excuse me for being a few days late :).
As we prepare to close the books on 2018 I have one important announcement you should be aware of:
Legacy Affiliate System End Of Life
We're going to be taking our legacy affiliate system offline at the first of January 2019.
If you haven't already, please make sure to signup in our new system and swap out your affiliate links.
We launched the new system around this time last year, but wanted to leave the old system online long enough for everyone to make this transition.
It's very important that you get this completed, if you have any questions, feel free to let us know!
The new system allows for much more dynamic tracking and flexibility as you're able to create an affiliate link using any page on the NameHero website (including our Blog).
This is a great way to captivate your audience as you can send them to some of our free training courses and get a commission if they signup within 90 days of clicking the link!
With that said, we also have some exciting news/announcements to share:
Setup WordPress Staging In 1 Click (And Push To Live)
Last month we announced our long awaited one-click WordPress staging environment.
Effective immediately across all NameHero Web Hosting, Reseller Hosting, and VPS Hosting packages, you can create a WordPress staging environment right inside of cPanel.
This allows you to take your existing WordPress website, copy it exactly to another folder, sub-domain, or domain and make changes that cannot be seen by your visitors. This is great for adding a new theme, modifying key content, or experimenting with plugins.
Once you're certain your site is the way you want it, you can then push it back live to your visitors.
This saves a lot of headache from having to take a manual backup and restore it incase something goes amiss.
Updated Reseller Hosting With WHMCS Tutorial Now Live
Popular WordPress YouTuber Darrel Wilson and myself teamed up to produce this where he also shows how to use WordPress as your front-end selling website!
This five-hour long tutorial, covers everything from start to finish setting up a WordPress website that uses WHMCS to resell hosting.
If you follow it closely, you'll have a fully functioning website by the end.
Even if you're already using WordPress/WHMCS, this is a great tutorial to go back through your settings and make sure you have everything setup as intended!
A special thanks to Darrel for inviting me over to his YouTube channel to produce this!
Welcome Black Friday/Cyber Monday Customers
Each year, we have our biggest sale on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
I want to welcome everyone that joined us during these dates as well as thank all of our current customers and affiliates who joined us in this promotion!
