      You're very welcome Jane and I hope you do well with your new site. 

      The 24 to 48 hours is just a guideline.  Soon after you change your nameservers on Godaddy to hostgator you should be ready.  If you type in your domain name and you see the hostgator parked page then your site is ready.  If you're putting a wordpress theme on the site that is easy too, just go to the fantastico icon in the hostgator cpanel, click on it then select wordpress from the list on the left and it will install the platform for you.  I'm not familiar with blogger or any other blog platform.   Anyway, good luck.

      Well, it takes 24-48 hours to get my domain name transfered from godaddy to hostgator.  I've been working on the backside of hostgator trying to set up a wordpress blog, seems I'm only allowed one - I thought it was more than one sad  And the one they gave you is a generic page & I tried to download a theme I liked, but again, it fails on download.  So it may be awhile.

      I also tried to download a website background from the download tool in Hostgator and that failed three times!

      I could use one of the guys sitting over my shoulder about now!

    all right Jane. That is great news getting your own website up and running. Okay details woman details....or would that be considered self promotion on here?

    anyways...you have unlimited subdomains with HG , each of those subdomains can have a wordpress install and its own domain associated with it

    I can try and dig up some videos and tuts for you..BUT, one of the reasons I recommend HG is they have great customer service and they will walk you through the process on the phone or through chat and even check for mistakes for you

    so dont fear..you can have as many sites as you want on that HG account and there is still tons of help around wink
