    Ok.. So I have a question. I do have a blog with my own hosting and own domain. But that blog is not about marketing at all.. Just yet. Might be when I get it started properly. Some of you guys heard about my tranceblog. It´s in the making. But takes time to monetize that kind of blog.

    I need to start another blog to have my affiliate-marketing going. But In order to do this apparently I will need to have another hosting and sign up for a new domain? Because from what I´ve learned Wordpress doesent like it if you monetize the blogs and use affiliate-links if you go by their hosting? Like www*dot*myname*dot*wordpress*dot*kom"?

    So my question is: Will I need to purchase a whole new domain-name and then download the wordpress-app? Or are there other ways to go round that and still use a free wordpress blog? :)

    For monetizing a new website I would always recommend to use a TLD (TopLevelDomain > myname-dot-com)
    But If your hosting allows more than one domain on each account, you can just use the old hosting you have.

    Well that´s the sad part. I use "One-com" and it only gives me one domain-name, so I only have the option to start subdomains. That is sad. :/
