It looks interesting, but when a website looks as shady as that ("I will generate a key for $1.25 a pop" and all links lead to the same index-page), I'm not sure I will trust my precious code to them.
But maybe it's me and it's ligit, who knows?
When you're new, don't start with a separate ESP (ESP-01 to ESP-14) module.
Get yourself a proper development board: NodeMCU - WeMos D1 - WeMos (UNO form factor) - Witty Board
ESP power requirements are 3.3V±10%@350mA
The ESP8266 IS NOT 5V tolerant on ANY pin (see item 5.14 on page 25 of the FAQ)
