I just registered a domain with Godaddy, paid for hosting, and uploaded WordPress using the app Godaddy supplies. My default wordpress site is now live and I can also access the dashboard, the only problem I'm having is uploading themes (or lack of uploading). I have purchased a couple of themes and put them on my desktop, still in the .zip format. From the upload themes page where it says to upload the .zip folder, I browse to one of the .zip folders and hit install now, but it's not responding; The little wheel in the browser tab and next to the mouse pointer just spins and spins. I've tried with both theme .zips and even left it to load for over an hour with no success.
It also says there is a newer version of wordpress and jetpack, but when I try and update them they're also not responding. Please help.
*Sorry, I think I should have put this in the themes forum.
