    Hi there!

    I've been lurking these forums for a while--3 years to be exact--and I've finally decided to seek a bit of help, from respected members of the BHW community.

    Basically, I want to start off stating that, like many, I want to get into becoming an Amazon Affiliate. I have all the tools, and knowledge, at my disposal. However, there are a few things that have always confused me.


    Let's begin.

    The only amount of money I have is from an Unverified Paypal Account. This means that I did not connect it with a credit card, or a bank account. Why does this matter? Because I am looking for a reliable web hosting company (including domain) that will accept Paypal, and is relatively cheap. Hosting has always been a weakness of mine. If anyone could help, please msg.

    What I need:


    • Hosting Company that accepts Unverified Paypal
    • Basic guidelines on tips to rank on Google

      My Goals:

    • To at least make $1000-2000 a month soon
    • To eventually build over 5 different niche sites that are successful
    Got Any Tips?

    Please, please write them in the comments!

    Basically, I need help to find a hosting service, that is cheap, for Unverified Paypal users.

    I don't think you're going to find any hosting company which would accept an unverified paypal account.
    But I did somehow manage to pay for my Whatsapp extension when my PayPal was unverified. So, there's hope.

    Just a quick update! I did actually manage to find one! I went with "Namecheap" for the domain. I also bought hosting from "DigitalOcean", however, it was too confusing for a newbie like me, so I resorted to buying Namecheaps hosting, as well.

    A bit of a first impression: I love Namecheaps prices and checkout process! So simple, and easy! Only problem I have is their hosting can sometimes be on and off. Maybe it might be my problem, somehow, but I often see my Wordpress changes being reverted. However, yesterday, it was up for the whole day without anything being changed back. Maybe it was because I just started out or something. Regardless, I'm happy at the moment and will try out some article writing and SEO.

    Food luck on your journey mate. :) For learning more about SEO and creating successful amazon affiliates sites, you have to do the research yourself. There are a lot of good journey threads for these topics, so I suggest you to go through them. :)

    Welcome!

    There are very few hosting companies that accept unverified Paypal accounts, I will look into my bookmarks and PM you if I find any good ones, but have you thought about maybe purchasing with Bitcoin instead? That might be easier if you don't have a CC or verified Paypal account and if you wish to remain anonymous for whatever reason. Canaca accepts Bitcoin, but just a heads up, their customer service is HORRIBLE. Their uptime is decent, but that's about it (I recently left them for Netfirms).

    Some companies also take prepaid/gift cards as well, usually unintentionally, especially from different countries where they don't recognize the BIN number of your card as a prepaid card. Look into it!

    As for ranking high on Google, start off with some gray and white hat methods first, a quick Google search on "how to rank higher on Google", "SEO tips for Google", or something similar should help you get started!

    There are many gray hat methods on here as well that will really help you get started.

    Good luck with everything, and take care!
