    Hi, I'm very new to setting up a website and this post will show that but i need some help guys and gals, please.

    I may have been a little to eager and purchased a domain name with go daddy for 3years...however I'm now realizing that with wanting to set up a photographic website/company with a Word Press template...i may have to use the templates provided by go daddy?

    i thought it would be possible to set up a Word Press site and then link the two? or do i need to just use Go daddy templates and word press sites?

    Any advice or tips would be hugely appreciated..

    thanks, James

  2. GoDaddy is your domain registrar, and they might be your hosting provider too if you're paying them for hosting.

    If you are paying GoDaddy for hosting, just use their one-click WordPress installer, and you can use any theme you want to. :)

    If you aren't paying GoDaddy for hosting, you can choose any hosting provider and do just the same.

    This should be of some help: http://codex.wordpress.org/New_To_WordPress_-_Where_to_Start

    james . I recently switched within go daddy to. They said there built in seo was only good for 5 pages right now and there other program was no good with the new platform so they moved me to wordpress. Whole different animal. Good luck

    Thanks Jsmart. Just to clarify, did you stay with Godaddy and your domain name? They just switched you to a full blown wordpress host with them?

    Thanks..

    yes. I still host thru them but thats it. The giuy i spoke with said there seo optimizer wasnt compatible withthere new website designer but it is compatible with wordpress so in one uyear ive done my site over 2 times. Sucks

    i see mate. That sounds like a LOT of work! It sounds good now though..

    thanks for the tips. Im going to be setting up with go and wp in about 2-3 months..

    cheers.

  8. I don't see how an SEO optimizer for their website builder could possibly tie into WordPress, an entirely separate program. It's a bit like saying the formatting enhancements in Microsoft Word really come in handy when editing a photo in Photoshop, things just don't work that way. ;)

    I'm going to assume they meant that WordPress had much better SEO options, and if that's what they meant, they were indeed right: http://codex.wordpress.org/Search_Engine_Optimization_for_WordPress and, if you don't want to go to all that trouble, there are some great plugins, like http://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/ (the #3 plugin in the official plugins directory). :)
