I have registered a few affiliate marketing companies to make some addtional money.

There are 125*125 banners are displayed in right side of the website for them. Let assume that they Bluehost, Hostgator, Semrush.

If I displayed there names with link or 125*125 image with link under "Our Sponsors" tag, is it legal?

Or it depends on the company?

    Why would it be illegal to mention your sponsors? Unless you have signed something with them that prohibits you from mentioning them, I don't even know why you might think it might be illegal. Commented Aug 25, 2017 at 10:47

It usually depends on the country and the company's requirement/agreement for disclosing the relationship.

For example in the US, the FTC requires clear and conspicuous disclosures for affiliate links. You can read about these in the following guides from the FTC:

Example of disclaimer page:

Example of disclosure when posting on social media:
