    1) sober up mike.

    2) don't worry about any of godaddy's extra crap that they try to sell. i use them as my domain registrar (for over a dozen domains) and never add any extra options.

    3) use a company that specializes in hosting, e.g. www.eleven2.com (i use these guys).

      crap scott i wish i could have a beer,
      i bought about 5 domain names from go daddy, their web site is extremely confusing, i believe they give you 5 pages free hosting with each domain registration, if i need more i will get more.
      then they call and try to sell you the privacy service, which i would want, however i doubt it is that private.
      this happen to people i know in ny , alternative transportation advocates, they started documenting the city employee's using forged parking placards to park illegally all over the city. they made a web site called uncivil servants, and they had pictures of the private vehicle blocking sidewalks, crosswalks, h/c space. the civil servants didn't like getting outed so they started calling the whois info and threatening them , all kinds of stuff, posted the picture of of one on the guy on a pro cop site to keep on the lookout , where he lived and worked , so the local precincts could stop and harass him. the nypd did the same with a tv reported that was doing a special article eon the same thing, called his house all hours of the day, posted his address and phone pictures type if car he had , license plates on a pro cop website.

        The godaddy free pages are all advertising supported, metro-Mike. It's a clunky interface and not very versatile. I'm not really impressed with any of their hosting packages either, although I've purchased a # of domains from godaddy. A lot of my coworkers use 1and1 webhosting.

        You can get godaddy domains by proxy service if you don't want your name/contact information to be displayed in whois data, however, it's not really any kind of legal protection or real expectation of privacy. Godaddy's domain-by-proxy services maintains "absolute right and power, in its sole discretion and without any liability" to reveal your personal information to whomever they choose.

          I'm not a fan of these guys. I just moved a client site that sees > 30k visitors/day to Eleven2 b/c 1and1 decided to change the site's IP w/o notifying the client. This resulted in a full day of downtime & a scramble of trying to figure out what caused the site to go down. They thought it was something else initially & almost made a $$$$ server upgrade all b/c 1and1's support department is retarded.

            Whoa that totally bites, Scott. Any unscheduled outage is unacceptable and a full day of downtime is outrageous! It is too bad, because 1and1 pricing seemed quite competitive and all my coworkers seemed pretty happy with the service. I'll have to check out Eleven2.

              yes that is what i thought, they push the additional service as a privacy safeguard from stalkers etc but in their contract they state the opposite. sounds like false advertising to me, i could understand with a subpoena's, but any jerk is enabled to get the contact billing info info., why am i apying for this service?
              what i am planning on doing is a blog, using wordpress as software with hosting with godaddy initially
              as i learn more i am sure i will move off go daddy next year, already been sucked into go daddy hosting i think? maybe i should just forego their free webhosting packabe with domain name? i didn't realize it was ad supported .
              i am not sure how to do this, but i registered a couple domain that i want to use with all the same viewer information, if you click on number1website.com or numberonewebsite.com or number1website.org the viewer would see the same blog, is this called redirecting?
              i don't think there will be much data stored on the webpages , since it will ba a blog with links to u tube and other news articles

                1and1 is big enough that their equipment and datacenters are top notch for what they offer, and service is typially good. Downside is that the size of the company diminishes the quality of support & customer relations.

                Eleven2 is run by a handful of guys outside of Houston & they know their stuff. Pricing & service is equally as competitive, if not better. Give 'em a look.

                  here mike, since i'm pimping these guys anyway, read: http://www.eleven2.com/hosting/blogging/

                  godaddy has a great domain management system. if you choose to host elsewhere, all you have to do is change the nameservers associated with whichever domain.

                  what have you paid for w/ godaddy so far?

                    Sorry to get OT. Wordpress vs. Blogger? I run Wordpress on several sites. I don't use Blogger. Both are good & super easy to manage. You can do much more with Wordpress.

                    Two WP sites I've set up:

                    http://grants.cureadvocacy.com/ (joint effort w/ Steven)
                    http://www.beautyability.com/2.0/ (Tiffiny/Theophania's site)

                    There are others too, but unrelated to anything here on CC. OJ, if you want a copy of WP to play with prior to signing on w/ a host, PM me.

                      Godaddy has features with the functionality you are describing. You can use "Domain Forwarding" and "Masking" OR you could do html redirection using meta http-equiv tags.

                            Mike, wordpress is an application that you run from your webbrowser on your webhost. When you set it up in godaddy, you should have set up password and admin account. You then go to your wordpress site and you have access to an administrator panel where you can add posts, moderate comments, etc.

                              thanks , i thought it was a like a website builder , that was my last try into the web world years ago.
                              i n the mean time i started with the wordpress site so i could get some info out and link to it , i still need to learn how to add links to articles i find that i want to high light.
                              since go daddy free hosting with domain names reg is ad supported i may look at just building it else place, but i first need to look at what i have paid go daddy for , so i don't screw my self

                                Sorry I think I probably added to your confusion nycguy because I myself was very unclear about some of the differences between the free Wordpress blog service and the stand alone Wordpress product when I started the thread. I also was mixing up Wordpress.com and Wordpress.org thinking they were the same thing when they aren't.

                                The replies in this thread were very helpful in clearning up my confusion.

                                Good luck with your project mike.
