    I'm very confused with wordpress, is it a application that I download, or is it just based online...
    I host with Globat.com, and I installed wordpress on there via an automated installation, but how do I start building the site...
    If I installed via that installation on my cpanel, do I still need to do all the stuff with changing the wordpress files and FTP etc...
    I can't figure out how to get to the administration panel...
    Also, currently, when I go to my domain name, it brings me to were I registered the name, how do I associate the site I'm about to build with my domain name...
    I'm sorry for the tedious questions, but I'm very new to this, and I've been trying for days to figure most of it out via tutorials and FAQs, but I think I just need someone to explain it to me....Thanks in advance!!!

    It's an online application but before you can run it on your own site, you may have to download a zipped copy, unzip it and then use FTP to upload it to your web space.

    how do I start building the site

    Go to http://www.your_domain.com/wp-admin and log into the Administration area. You may also want to read some of the Codex pages for beginners.

    You need to install WordPress first and then use your own domain name.
