I want to help you with your adventure of making passive income online. Here are some resources to help aid you in your journey.
Siteground: The best hosting provider in this day of age to host your content is Siteground. For as little as $3.99 a month (you can only get this low price with my link), you can get a free domain if you opt for 12 months of hosting. Purchasing a domain name costs $10-$15 normally.

Tools to make your own apps.
Construct 2: This is my favorite tool to use for prototyping and game creation. Construct 2 uses a drag and drop editor to export game assets and it uses a simplistic “events” system to create games. Construct 2 can export to many formats such as iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Tizen, Desktop and more. My only gripe about Construct is that it doesn’t have native mobile exporting abilities, but Construct 3 was announced awhile back. I hope the new Construct will correct those issues.
Stencyl: Another game creation I used to use. Like Construct 2, it uses a drag and drop editor to craft your game. Instead of events, Stencyl uses MIT “Scratch” blocks for all logic programming. Stencyl only exports to Flash, iOS, Android, Windows, Mac, and Linux. They have an Indie and Studio license with it’s yearly fee ranging from $99-$199 a year. Not my cup of tea, but to each it’s own.
GameMaker: I’ve only used GameMaker about twice, and I didn’t really care for it. It’s a good tool for prototyping games just like the other drag and drop game makers out there, but I dislike the UI (User Interface). It feels all over the place to me, but it has wonderful export options that even Construct 2 doesn’t support like Xbox One and PS4/Vita support and even native iOS and Android builds. If you want the full package, you will need about $800 USD.
Audacity: Audacity is a free sound editor and it’s by far one of the best free sound editing tools. It has a large plugin library to enhance your sounds and recordings. Try it out and you won’t be disappointed.
