    Question wamp vs godaddy

    I would like to use this tutorial to install wikimedia. I am very new to all of this. Do I have to use wamp or would it be better/safer to use godaddy (where all of my accounts are). Or am I completely on the wrong track all together?
    Thank you.

    It would be better and safer because
    1) Godaddy normally knows what they doing, hosting a website on your own system leaves you open to many security holes if you don't know what you are doing.
    2) Some ISPs don't allow websites to be hosted through their network. You should check with them first if you decide to go this route.
    3) If its a money issue then don't worry about it. There are many free web hosts that offer subdomains. If you really wanted to, you could buy a domain with godaddy, and host your site on a free webserver. I recommend www.freehostia.com

    I would always reccomend avoiding FreeHostia. A couple of my hosting clients come from that company. Their hosting is inadequate, slow, and low secuirty.

    Hosting is so cheap at the moment that it would be easier for anyone seeking hosting to look for a company that can offer what they need at reasonable prices. i suggest 1and1.com or a similar site. depending on what your needs actually are.
