so you may be better advised to convert your finished product to .mobi ( use Calibre) & take it there

Yes, that's right. All the majors (Amazon, B&N, iBooks & Kobo) allow the publisher to add DRM, optionally. It's not merely cheap, it's free, if we're simply discussing the publishing/uploading process. Amazon's DRM mechanism is proprietary, so unlike Adobe's option, there isn't a private-sector or independent MOBI DRM scheme, of which I'm aware. (Unless the mobiunpackers here are planning to create a repack w/DRM, but, somehow, I just don't see that happening! ;-)

My comprehension of the OP's original post was about DRM in general, for ePUBs, so...it was to that, that I responded. I actually get this question 2-3x a week, about selling from a website of their own, so I made an assumption. I could have jumped the gun. ;-)
