Self-hosting issues

  1. I just read the page that lays out the difference between WP.com and WP.org - again!

    I'm quite confused (and irritated and annoyed) and I have a number of questions:

    1) First - please define the term 'self-hosting' - as I understand it, in YOUR world this means that any site that is NOT hosted with WP is by your definition 'self-hosted', right? In other words, if our site is hosted by GoDaddy.com it is self-hosted, right?

    2) I want to create a custom site with complete control over its look and feel - most of our pages will be static, but one of the pages will have a blog. So am I correct in assuming that we would be better-off self-hosting this site with GoDaddy?

    3) If we host with GoDaddy, just what resources will we need from WordPress?

    Please advise.

    Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is wealthstrategyinstitute.wordpress.com.

    1. Correct, but there's also a difference between having a hosting account and just a domain name. GoDaddy offers both.

    2. Probably.

    3. None. You may need the software and/or add-ons from wordpress.org, but nothing from wordpress.com.

  3. If we're just going to have a single blog on just one page on the site, why do we need WordPress?
