Changing Godaddy Domain Name Servers for WordPress Blog

Changing Godaddy Domain Name Servers for WordPress Blog by Diane Cossie Owning your own WordPress Blog is just about the most important things you can do for your business and your brand online and with the recent changes in the rules on advertising on Google, followed by some You Tube accounts being closed down owning your own virtual REAL ESTATE is no longer an OPTION .. it is a MUST HAVE. I have two main Blogs, one is my personal blog DianeCossie .COM and the other is this one Off Road MLM. I self host both blogs with HOSTGATOR and that’s the bit where most people’s eyes glaze over and their next thought is usually “I have no clue how to do that” so they either outsource the project, use Blogger or Typepad to get around the problem or simply never start a blog of their own, so I thought I’d put together a series of “How To Set Up A WordPress Blog” and as a complete “non techie” myself you will see I do it the easiest way possible. Step One : Buy a Domain Name at Godaddy or your favourite “domain store” this will usually cost you less than $10.00 a year. Choose a DOT COM, DOT NET or DOT ORG as your first preference and if you are not using your own name, make sure you do some keyword research for a term in your niche because Google still ranks highly based on the domain name of your website. (See the Traffic Cipher Blog post for more on that). Godaddy are going to put LOTS of choices your way between selecting your domain name and getting to the check out. Stay
