    Is it possible guys that I install a wordpress on free hosting given by godaddy with the purchase of domain names. I have chosen linux as the hosting plan when prompted whether I wanted windows or linux.....
    Please help, I need the site up and running by next week

    Yea, it is possible. If there isn't Wordpress in CPanel, you can manually install Wordpress.
    Code:
    hxxp://wordpress.org/download/

    Yeah hostgator has cpanel with fantastico but godaddy doesn't have cpanel, they have their own app.
    Way easier to setup in cpanel at hostgator, just a few clicks. Just make sure what ever account you get at hostgator comes with fantastico. You can ask someone in live chat at their site as well just to be sure.
    To me time is money so I thinks it worth it and it doesn't cost that much in the first place. Also, there are tons of other scripts you can install with fantastico besides wordpress.
