I became an affiliate of Global Domains International(GDI) in January 2020, and today want to share some details and experience with you regarding this program.
What is GDI?
GDI(Global Domains International) is a domain and hosting registration service provider which allows people to buy domains. Primarily they sell .ws top level domains, but also other top level domains like .com, .net, .org and many more can be bought as well. In addition to domains, other services (see benefits below) are offered.
Especially interesting for most people here might be the in my opinion extremely lucrative compensation plan, which I will now go into more detail.
Benefits of joining GDI
- A top level domain (.ws, .com, .net, .org etc.)
- 100 MB hosting storage
- A user friendly Site-builder
- Domain name forwarding (optional with masking)
- 10 email addresses for each of your domain
- 1 GB Email storage per address
- Participation in the lucrative affiliate program
- 7-day free trial to the program ($10 for a .ws domain afterward)
This is standard compensation plan that ALL affiliates qualify for, even those who are still in their free trial period. The GDI compensation plan is based upon a multi-level model, each level can be built infinitely wide and you will benefit from every affiliate going down as far as 5 levels in your network
For every referred active affiliate you will earn $1 per month. While you are not limited to this, it is recommended to find 5 affiliates. This will pay you $5 dollars per month on your first level.
Now, if each one of those 5 also refers 5 affiliates, you will now have 25 affiliates on your second level. Your earnings will be $30 per month then, a combination of your 1st and 2nd level. If this process is completed throughout 5 levels in your network, your monthly commissions will amount to more than $3,900 per month.
Now, keep in mind that you are not limited to only referring 5 affiliates. You can refer 5, 10, 100 or even 1000 affiliates. Each level can grow infinitely wide. Your only limitation is that you will earn from no more than 5 levels, unless you qualify for the so called “Infinity bonus”. I will provide more details regarding this bonus shortly.
The GDI compensation plan also features additional bonus opportunities for high performers:
Weekly Superstars Bonus
Each time when you refer 5 active affiliates in a week from Monday to Sunday you will earn $100 as bonus.
The amount of this bonus is unlimited. For every 5 new affiliates that you refer from Monday to Sunday, you will earn $100. For example, if you refer 25 new active affiliates in a week, you will earn $500.
GDI Learning Bonus
GDI will pay you $25 for completing all steps in the GDI Learning Bonus. The learning bonus is very easy to get.
There are some Tasks:
- Become an active affiliate
- Create an e-mail address
- Send 10 invitations by e-mail
- Refer an active affiliate
- Create a website
- Choose your payout method
After registration you’ve got 8 weeks left to secure this bonus.
GDI Duplication Bonus
Each time when 10 of your self-referred affiliates receive the Learning Bonus, you will be credited with $250. The amount of this bonus is unlimited.
Heavy Hitter Bonus
If you refer 1000 new active affiliates within a period of 4 weeks, you will receive a bonus of $5000.
GDI Infinity Bonus
The Infinity Bonus unlocks a 6th level for your network, which also gives you $1 for all active affiliates there.
- You must at least have 10 self-referred active affiliates on the first level.
- 10 of your self-referred affiliates must also have at least 10 self-referred active affiliates.
- You must have at least 5000 active affiliates on the first 5 levels.
- You must re-qualify for the Infinity Bonus each month.
