    you will need the wordpress.com account to get the API key for akismet

    to install a plugin on your own hosting

    Please provide a link to see your blog, because your other thread, http://wordpress.org/support/topic/311122?replies=7 says you can't login...and if you can't login you cannot activate plugins.

    You can't use Plugins at wordpress.COM.

    Once you get your site at godaddy working you will be able to install new plugins.

    Talk to godaddy (or your domain registrar) about insuring your domain thehorseforce.com is pointing to the correct nameservers at godaddy.

    No. You need to talk to godaddy.

    Once your domain is working properly. Please come back here and let us know.

    You need the nameservers to point to godaddy name servers. Please consult your domain registrar.

    Forget about wordpress.COM and wordpress.org for now.

    Get your domain nameservers straight.
