    Hello again everyone,
    I am just planning to start an Amazon Affiliate site and I have the niche and the plan all ready, but I am a bit stuck on where to get the domain. I can get it on GoDaddy for 2 years for £12.20, but I was planning to host with iPage, and they offer a free domain for a year but then charge $16.99 (about £11.19) per year after that. At the moment I am only planning to host this for a year, to see how it goes, so I would like to use iPage's free year. As I will still own the domain, I don't think that this would be a problem compared to purchasing it on GoDaddy, but do you guys know if it would be any worse/different using their free domain, rather than purchasing it yourself? Also, their server is in the US and 90% of my traffic are from the UK. Is this a problem? Thanks for any advice you can give.
