The Planet Ramps Channel Efforts

Houston-based The Planet, a provider of web hosting and colocation services, is ramping up its channel partner efforts, saying today that it has created a new channel program called Partner Plus. The firm said the new effort increases commissions up to 20 percent to referral customers, volume-based server discounts, and affiliate promotions to give 100 percent of a referred customer's first bill to those affiliates. Customers use The Planet to host their web sites and servers.
