    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: ns1.hostingco.com, ns2.hostingco.com, ns3.hostingco.com, ns4.hostingco.com

    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.
