Free Hosting For Your Amazon Affiliate Websites
(No Affiliate Links)



Your choice of hosting can make or break your Amazon affiliate website. Let's take a look at a few of the possible outcomes of both good and bad hosting just so you can understand the severity of this decision.


If you pick good hosting....

  • You'll get more traffic because a good web host will optimise your server for quick loading times
  • Your Amazon affiliate website will be secure because a good web host will apply security patches and have great security policies keeping your website safe
  • You'll have a predictable cash flow because a good web host won't add sneaky charges on out of the blue
  • You'll have a website you're not afraid to make big changes to because a good web host will make regular easy to access backups of your website
  • You can sleep easy at night knowing a good web host will have first class support so if you are hacked or the service goes down you know they are working their hardest to get you back online

Now lets look at the opposite. Let's look at what happens when you pick a bad web host for your Amazon affiliate website....

  • You'll get LESS traffic because a bad web host will not of optimised your web server for quick loading times and have probably over provisioned servers meaning they've got more websites on their infrastructure than what its designed to be able to handle.
  • Your Amazon affiliate website will be insecure because a bad web host will not apply security patches in time ot AT ALL in some instances and have poor security policies allow people to steal your websites traffic
  • You'll have an unpredictable cash flow because a bad web host will add on sneaky charges on out of the blue that you've agreed to in the small print
  • You'll be terrified of making big changes to your website because a bad web host will make poor or non-existent backups of your website
  • You won't be able to sleep easy at night because you suspect that your bad web host with terrible support will make life hell for you when your website is down and you are losing traffic and money

The point above discusses paid hosting, however not everyone has any funds to begin with. So let's take a look and see how you can get started with Amazon affiliate websites for free.

Free hosting for your Amazon affiliate website

If money is tight there are some tricks you can use to get going completely free of charge. I'm going to show you how you can get a free domain, free SSL and free web hosting. Now you do need some technical knowhow for this option and you won't have any technical support other than asking questions on website like ServerFault so if you are not willing to learn this free option might not be the best web hosting option for you.

To get your free domain head over to Freenom and pick from one of the free .mk, .tk, .ga, .cf, or .gq domain names they allow.

Next we're going to get some free web hosting. Now there are several options, there are free shared hosting options but these are often filled with ads and not very reliable. If you head over to Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services both have a free tier of low usage that is perfect for hosting a handful of simple websites for free. Here are a few guides to give you more details.

Because you are managing your hosting yourself be sure to make regular backups (snapshots) of your server from within your Cloud hosting control panel.

In addition to backups be sure you have your WordPress installation set to auto update.
