People ask me a lot how to set up hosting and what they can do to get their website going. Setting up through GoDaddy.com and other domain sites can be very difficult, especially if you are new to website development and setup. It can get confusing as at first glance it seems that you just want to buy a domain to have your website but people fail to realize that is not the case.
Purchasing a domain is like purchasing a plot of land without a house on it. You have to have hosting set up somewhere to get a house (or a website) built on that plot of land.
Luckily, I have created a streamlined guide to setting up domain hosting to get you started on your journey into the wild wild web. With my godaddy hosting setup instruction guide, your setup will be simple and will get you a little better informed on what you are purchasing for your website.
