Questions and Answers
If I have a web host and domain name and want to use wordpress blogging software do I need to sign-up to wordpress after downloading the software?
No, you don't have to sign up to wordpress.com.
WordPress.com is just a service they've created which uses WordPress software for hosting websites, but if you have your own web hosting and a domain name there are 2 ways to install WordPress on your website:
1. One click installs – most good web hosts include OneClick install or InstallCentral which provides you with the easiest way to install various software including WordPress on your website. You basically just click Install WordPress and that's it. It would be installed in a couple of seconds.
2. If your host doesn't support One Click installs you have to go to wordpress.org download the latest version of wordpress to your computer, upload it to your web host using any FTP client and then install it.
P.S. If you still haven't got hosting I recommend one of these Http://www.webhostingdiscounts.org/ They all support one click install of WordPress and the iPage has the best offer right now.
Is any working plugin which enables new users after sign up can get on their email confirmation link to approve their account in wordpress site?
Try to look at this carefully:
when you "sign up" in a whatever web service, you should get an email verification/confirmation in your email.
Do you remember what the email that you use to sign up is?
Whet you click on the sign up button, usually its says: "thanks, an email confirmation has been sent" or "click here to get an email confirmation again". If its not work, try to sign in with the info that you type in registration form. If it say that you are not a registered member, so, you must re-sign up with the same information.
I have signed up to godaddy.com and have bought the account name. So how do I transfer it to my wordpress account.
Transferring a WordPress website to GoDaddy requires quite a few steps. Here is the general concept so that you can visualize what you need to do next. I have also added some technical information that may be helpful to you as well.
You bought your domain name through GoDaddy so they are now your domain name registrar.
You bought a web hosting account from GoDaddy so they are now your web hosting company.
It sounds like you already have an existing WordPress website so you will be moving it or more correctly technically – migrating your WordPress Website to GoDaddy from I assume WordPress.com.
The simplest and easiest approach is to install WordPress in your GoDaddy account first. GoDaddy offers the WordPress Application as one of their available applications that you can install in your account for your website domain (same as website) using their automated WordPress application installer.
The reason you want to install WordPress on GoDaddy even though you may have a WordPress Website somewhere else is because what you will be migrating (basically downloading to your computer and then uploading via FTP to your GoDaddy account) is any WordPress files that you modified yourself. There is no need to copy your entire old WordPress website because most of the WordPress files are the core platform files. This is why you would install a fresh copy of WordPress and then upload the things you added to your old WordPress website. Ie WordPress Plugins, customized WordPress Theme templates, image uploads, your style.css file you customized, etc. Basically you just need to download and upload any files that you added yourself or modified yourself for your old WordPress website. The other very important step is backing up your WordPress SQL database on your old WordPress website. I recommend installing the WP-DBManager plugin on your old WordPress website. It is a backup plugin that will back up your old WordPress SQL database for you and email you that backup. So once WordPress is installed on your GoDaddy account you can just import your old WordPress SQL database into your new WordPress SQL database created for you when you installed WordPress in your GoDaddy account.
There are a lot of different scenarios depending on what particular type of WordPress website move or migration you are doing so since your question does not specifically state your exact scenario I can only generalize my answer.
