The other thing to understand is that it simply doesn’t need to cost that much to build a thriving affiliate business. I can say this for a fact since I’ve done it myself. I went from nothing to full-time income in less than 2 years, and on a shoestring budget. You don’t need fancy tools and you don’t need to pay for traffic. I also prefer the bootstrap approach because it gives you time to learn before risking your money on paid traffic. There’s a lot to learn, so you want to give yourself the time you need to do it without going broke.

It CAN be worked with the basics but it will take you a long time to get them working using a host sublinked website and just 2 before you have to pay for your domains which one should want to do even for the 1st two so you do not have the long sublink. I wouldn’t buy from a sublink. I would think it is a trap or a “sneaky” website more so than a “trusted” dot com site. That is why it is ALWAYS worth paying the $11.99 or $12.99 for the domain registration, for the MILLIONS of people like me in the computer security field.
