As a potential customer I cannot help but notice all of the promo codes that are available from current customers of Dreamhost. I have read about and understand the financial benefits for both the people advertising the promo codes and the new customer who uses one of them when signing up.
My question is, what information is given by DreamHost to the lucky advertiser when a new customer uses one of their promo codes? Will my friend, or potential new friend ever know it was me that used their promo code?
Or to put the question another way, if I someday put a DreamHost promo code on my new website, what information will I receive from DreamHost about any new customers who sign up using my promo code? Am I likely to recognize old friends in a list of DreamHost’s new customers that I receive? Will I receive a list of their new domain names and/or other information so that I can help them get started or just monitor the success of their website(s)?
