    most webhosting companies will have a tool to upload wordpress easily to your site. Go daddy hosting has that. Many others have a great tool called fantastico which will install it for you.

    or if webhosting seems too complicated, you can start a free wordpress account. you could also start a free wordpress account, then buy a domain name and mask the url so that your freeblog.wordpress.com will show up as yourdomainname.com

    Yes. They will do it. With Godaddy, you can.

    - Automatically install Wordpress, Joomla and other Code.
    - Automatically backup data.
    - Unlimited domain.

    have you figured it out yet?

    in the godaddy site click the green "Hosting" tab

    then "manage account"

    then "your applications"

    then on the left hand side "blogs"

    then "wordpress"

    just follow directions on screen

    Hi Affiliate Ninja,

    Like was mentioned above if you have Godaddy account it is really easy to install wordpress as...Just log in to your Goddady account and spend couple of minutes learning the stuff, if you still confused then give them a call. They will be glad to assist you.

    Good luck mate.

    There are also some free hosting sites available such as 000webhost.com or bytehost hostami.me that give you FREE Hosting a FREE subdomain and FREE installation of wordpress though yes I know wordpress is free.
