    GoDaddy Hosting Server Configuration for WordPress

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    GoDaddy offers free hosting, but with ads on your website. This is only possible if the domain is registered in their domain. If you registered your domain with GoDaddy and you would like to set up WordPress, also hosted in their domain, this article gives the details.

    Hosting Requirements for WordPress

    This information in this tutorial is applicable to GoDaddy's current setup procedures as tested in August 2008. From time to time, they might change this procedure; it is hoped that it will vary only a little.

    This is part one of a tutorial series which deals with configuring the hosting/server in GoDaddy to fit WordPress specifications. The second part deals with configuring  WordPress, uploading it to the server and taking care of the final details before the site can be used officially.

    To start with, log in to your GoDaddy account and click "Hosting & Servers." Under "Hosting Management" click "My Hosting Account." Then you should see a page containing these lines:

    "To apply a free Hosting credit, click on the "Use Credit" link for the account type you want to activate.

    Free Hosting with domain - Economy Hosting - (Free with Domain)

    Use Credit

    (1 Avail)

    Before we proceed, you should know that WordPress is blog publishing software with the following hosting requirements:

    1. PHP 4.3 or greater

    2. MySQL 4.0 or greater

    3. The mod_rewrite Apache module

    4. The Linux Operating System

    It is an important requirement that the web host selected should have all of the above requirements before you install WordPress.

    Also it is a good strategy to avail yourself of free hosting with GoDaddy at the early stages of your site development. If the site is 100 percent stable and everything is ready for exposure, then you can upgrade the hosting to a paid one and they will remove the ads on your site.
