Important Notes

The full version of WordPress that we will use needs to be hosted with a hosting service provider.  For the purpose of the course I will show you how to set this up on a free service, but when you are ready to take it further you will need to purchase a domain name (around $10) and a hosting service (from a few dollars per month). 

I suggest you use the free service to complete the course, then you'll be better equipped to decide on a Domain Name and hosting.

The course concentrates on Amazon US affiliate products and tools.  Other Amazon stores may not use the same tools. You don't have to be based in the US to have an Amazon US affiliate account.
