OK, here's my tricky question:
Can an account be created, using a referral link (say, something like: http://www.somedomain.com/r.cgi?123456), and everything filled for the new account (login name, password, domains, etc.) and then the account NOT TO BE ACTIVATED immediately?
In this case, say, the new account is made active later, in a month or so, and first payment for the selected plan is made.
In this case, will the original referral (remember, the new account will be created using http://www.somedomain.com/r.cgi?123456, for example) get the 10% for the referring, or the fact that the account was created BEFORE, but NOT activated immediately, will cancel the 10%?...
I mean, if someone clicks a referring link, then registers with DreamHost, but doesn't activate (make a payment) immediately after that, will DH system keep the info which referred this customer?... Or one should click a referring link and IMMEDIATELY select a plan and pay using his/her Credit Card so the referrer can get the 10%?...
I'm puzzled as to that... So just wanted to ask:)
Thank you, sincerely: Michel
// Note: I'm asking because I registered my login name at DreamHost a long ago, like 6 months before or so... But I decided to try DreamHost hosting only a few weeks ago. So I simply used my existing login/password at DreamHost, selected a plan and made my first payment. Let's say, I clicked a referral link 6 months ago when signing up at DreamHost. Would DH website "remember" that I used a certain link and then give the referring person the 10% from each payment?... It's not the case, but I would like to know as to future similar scenario:)
