    I have a url reserved with Yahoo! (www.professionalbest.org). I see that WordPress and Yahoo! have an affiliate relationship. I want to keep my web address but use WordPress publishing capabilities. Can someone tell me how I:
    1. Keep my professionalbest.org address
    2. Have Yahoo! host the blog
    3. Use WordPress templates, publishing and get my blog up.

    Thank you!

    Option 1

    set up a hosting account with Yahoo.

    Use their incredibly bad control panel to install a faulty copy of wordpress.

    Have trouble for the next year

    Option 2

    set up a hosting account with asmallorange.com/mediatemple.net/bluehost.com

    Set up wordpress yourself in 2 minutes

    have no problems at all

    I've never used them, but I have heard dozens of raving reviews for them. Everybody that uses them talks about both their high quality hosting as well as their fast and helpful support...
