    You need a webhost. Have you subscribed to one yet? One that you pay for, or a free one (which are never really "free").

    As you need a web host, I would suggest that use any secure web host like HostGator, it is affordable, secure, popular with good support.

    Never use domain and host from the same provider, if your domain name is registered with Godaddy then use hosting from Hostgator, this would be perfect.

    If you are on a mac, I've heard that iWeb is pretty good. Otherwise, if you don't want to pay for it right away, you can search for free hosting. It'll have a tag on the end of the domain, though, I.E yourwebsitename.theirwebsitename.net . Then there is generally an option to pay to have your own domain name.

    I suggest Wix. Very nice website and good customer support.

    iWeb for Mac is an amateur website creator program (which has basically the same purpose as DreamWeaver (DW)), not a hosting platform to get a site online. There is, however, a webhost that calls itself iweb, too. But that has nothing to do with Mac/Apple.

    Ahh. I thought the hosting service was Mac exclusive, indicative of it's name.

    My bad :P
