    Here is the deal, we currently have a blog through tumblr with a domain through go daddy.

    We purchased wordpress value bundle.
    We purchased hosting through go daddy and installed.
    We purchased a theme from templatemonster.com and are awaiting them to install it.

    Currently, we have wp set at http://www.ourwebsite.com/wordpress with hopes that we can change the url to just http://www.ourwebsite.com when we are ready to move over to wp from tumblr.

    My question is if I'm doing this right? I know I still need to set up godaddy to point to the wp and not tumblr but other than that should this all work correctly?

    Here is a simple way to do it and I hope this makes sense.

    If your domain example.com is registered at Go Daddy and is currently pointing to tumblr blog. Setup the Go Daddy hosting with the WordPress installed directly into the root as opposed to into the WordPress sub directory which would force you to move it before going live.

    Instead you can point your host file to the Go Daddy hosting plan setup on example.com so you can view the Go Daddy hosted site from your PC. Here are the instructions. http://support.godaddy.com/help/article/3354/viewing-your-website-before-changing-your-nameservers-using-host-files

    If this is to tricky let me know, there is another way that is easy but takes a little longer and involves a few more steps. Also I believe you would have to install the Template Monster Theme if you purchased it through Go Daddy. It should come with a download or link here are some instruction on this. http://support.godaddy.com/help/article/6770/downloading-your-premium-wordpress-theme

    hope it helps my friend if not let me know so I can make it easier :) cheers
