    Here is the installation guide: http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress

    I think with goddady you can also use the automatic installer: http://support.godaddy.com/help/article/834/installing-wordpress-on-your-hosting-account

    You can can use another hosting provider if you want.

    You will need to point the Dns domain name server to your hosting provider:

    Here are some videos to give you an idea:

    Using Go daddy should be ok right

    I don't know because I've never used them, but they should be able to host a WordPress site.

    See the minimum requirements you will need for your hosting plan: http://wordpress.org/about/requirements/

    If you use Go Daddy hosting, we have WordPress hosting that basically pre-installs WordPress for you. This makes it easier if you prefer.

    Here's a link to the product: http://go.me/Z0

    Let me know if you have any questions. Also, support is available 24/7 by email or phone: http://x.co/heretohelp

    Don't hosted on godaddy unless you're attempting to prove yourself that your patience is bigger than the entire universe.

    Yes you can install WP with one click on godaddy but oh surprise you'll find out almost right away that you need an upgrade on your plan to allow WP to sun smooth.

    Also Godaddy is worthless on customer support, absolutely useless.

    Go to bluehost or any other really, Godaddy is frankly terrible!!

    Ah, I was afraid of this.

    @dmarshall972000@yahoo.es
    I'm closing this topic as I'm sure someone else will come along and tell you what hosting provider you should use/not use. I hope your question was answered, otherwise feel free to create a new topic.
