    Myself. Started with a INTUIT website (Hated it after I learned about WordPress).
    It is a constant, which most think it is easy.

    No. WP is an open source CMS that is available on GoDaddy and most any other host.

    Go Daddy used pay per click to get their name to come up.

    Most hosting packages will come pre configured with some open source software. I have a ton of it zipped up and ready to quick install. I do not use those loads as they are often out of date.

    You should find it here http://wordpress.org/

    As ELS pointed out, that's an advertisement. And as Greg points out, GoDaddy owning WP would be bone-chilling. I find it's hard to top GoDaddy for worst WP serving. Only thing worse than GoDaddy owning them would be Wix.

    FWIW, Not everyone should do this but what I do is have a VPS package that can host hundred or ven thousands of domains. I have 5 or 6 IP addresses and I pay about 50 bucks a month. Way more server than I need but I get good support. I can boost my PHP memory allotment, I can create any and all e-mail addresses I want. I can manage white list and black list on the server.

    Please do not go cheap on hosting.

    I could offer everything Go Daddy offers for pretty cheap but I am not in the hosting business.

    I have been told by designers to stay away from word press. They say google spiders and crawlers cannot read word press content......

    It's been my experience that this usually comes from designers and developers who don't know how to design/develop for WP.

    In a word, this is just crap. WP is perfectly fine and Search fully recognizes this.
