    I am trying to set-up my website through GoDaddy’s Hosting but everytime I go to install the application and choose my admin name and such it gives me an error – as well as my DNS is not mapped correctly I believe to the WordPress site.

    Basically I am trying to go through WordPress.org to set up my site but I feel it may be causing trouble with the existing WordPress.com account that I currently have?

    Please advice – so that I can continue exploring the issue and hopefully continue to use WordPress, otherwise I will have to change platforms if I cannot figured out the issue.

    Thanks.

    PS. I own the pushforwards.com domain and have a hosting account through godaddy for it – I have installed the WordPress app but everytime I go to the http://www.pushforwards.com/wp-login I get an error that reads…

    Not Found

    The requested URL /wp-login was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    Apache Server at pushforwards.com Port 80

    Whenever I go to the regular domain http://www.pushforwards.com I get this error…

    Forbidden

    You don’t have permission to access / on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    Apache Server at pushforwards.com Port 80

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

    If you don’t have a username account at WordPress.org, click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to those support forums.

    Thanks – this is just where it sent me when I asked WordPress for help – it wouldn’t let me email them directly.

    Trying both WordPress.org and Godaddy.

    WordPress.com and WordPress.org are completely separate and you need two separate username accounts.

    For starters your name servers are pointing to WordPress.COM – not your host – you need to get the correct name server info from Godaddy and change the name server settings at your Registrar

    Also make friends at WordPress.ORG as noted above
