When using wordpress, how do you set it up to use with your own domain and hosting company?

I am ready to enter the world of WordPress. Sounds great. My background is FrontPage, Classic ASP, SharePoint Designer, and light .net programming. I have a domain I have had for some time and hosting at godaddy. I want to use the functionality of WordPress and its plug-ins but am not sure where to start. Any advice or clues are welcome.

Log into your account go to your Hosting Control Center, Click on "Your Applications", Search for "WordPress", click on the search result "WordPress 3", then click "Install Now" and GoDaddy will set up the database for you automatically. You can tell it either install into a folder (i.e. www.yoursite.com/blog) or a sub domain (i.e. blog.yoursite.com). You can install WordPress on both Linux and Windows servers so your type of hosting won’t matter as long as you have the right PHP & MySql versions on your plan.

  1. When you go to your hosting account, using Godaddy’s godawfully annoying management system, you will have an application menu. From here you can install WordPress and several other different applications. It will guide you through the install, then all you do is setup your content.

  3. WordPress 3.0 is out. So if want to install wordpress 3.0, i recommend not to use fantastico, because with fantastico, wordpress software is not updated yet.

    To start building your wordpress site:
    Install wordpress using domain. Create a database, a database username, upload wordpress 3.0 zip from wordpress.org and extract it and you are ready to go.

  4. WordPress is great and simple. Since you are familiar with programming then this will be very easy for you. If you have cpanel then you can download WordPress to your site very easily.
