Amazon Hosting Has Limits
What you may not hear advertised is that Amazon Web Hosting has limits. As far as email goes you can only send 200 emails a day. So if you are a major corporation you may want to think twice about Amazon Free Hosting for a year.
You may think that since you are in the Amazon Cloud you may feel safer. However simple tasks like editing WordPress files become very time consuming if you do not know what you are doing.
You Must Understand Terminal Commands
If the following graphic scares you then you might want to learn a little more about terminal commands. Terminal commands in the Amazon Web Hosting services is how we install PHP, MySQL, Apache and more. I will guide you through these tutorials but you need to be comfortable with them.
Read Amazon Policies
Make sure that your business model does not violate any of Amazons policies. Amazon is notorious for closing accounts all of the sudden. Even if you do decide to go with Amazon Web Hosting Services, Make sure you keep a backup of all your files! Amazon at a future date can and most likely WILL change their policies. This could be to your detriment! Remember that Amazons Acceptable Use policy is open only for their interpretation.
Amazon Hosting Is Free For One Year
Please remember that one year from the time that you sign up you will start being charged for the service. After contacting other developers I was informed that a regular WordPress website is going to cost $7 to $10 a month. If you are big blog most likely it will cost more. http://aws.amazon.com/
Amazon Cloud Services
Amazon cloud service is great as long as you match their peachy cream policies and limits. Your website will be loaded on Amazon servers throughout the world and load a lightening fast speeds. However if your script is bogged down with heavy plugins and libraries it still may take a bit to load.
