It's easy. Once you get hosting, you'll be provided with a place you can FTP your files to using GoLive (it has FTP no?)

This is simply putting all the files you created onto a server, nothing much more to it.

Also, when you're getting a hosting account, they give you their name server addresses, like this:,,,

Take the above name servers, log into your GoDaddy account and point the domain name you purchased over to the above name servers.

Wait 4 - 24 hours...

Done. Your site will appear when you type in your domain name.
