Why do they require installing WordPress on every domain, or where did you see that at? Do you even desire using WordPress at all for your web project?

I've heard enough problems about GoDaddy's domain registration and hosting to avoid them at all costs. Fortunately, I started with another company anyway and haven't had a major problem in the past 5 years I've used them.

Here's my affiliate link, which I get payed a little for referring you. Of course, the reason I'm posting is because I'm a happy customer.

When you've got your hosting choice chosen, I suggest working with one domain at a time until it's set up, then moving onto the others.

Most hosting companies work with a system called Simple Scripts or another service for "quick and easy installation". I strongly recommend not using such systems. They often provide you with modified versions. Instead, I suggest you download programs like WordPress directly from the developers and set it up yourself. The setup is pretty basic: 1.) Create a database with appropriate user permissions based on the system you're using, 2.) Download the system from the developers, 3.) Either extract the zip file locally and upload it to your host, or upload the zip to your host and choose the Extract/Decompress option within the host's file manager, 4.) Direct your web browser to the system's installation page and follow their steps.

Do you want your web program to be installed directly to the domain (, a sub-directory of the root domain (, or a sub-domain ( WordPress can be installed directly on the root and I've never heard of a web host requiring it to be installed in a sub-folder instead.

Apologies if I don't respond to your reply immediately. I don't check this site daily, but you're welcome to PM me as a reminder.
