You need to buy web space and domain name from a hosting company. They will give you the ftp details you need to upload your website.

I don't know godaddy but I heard of it. Once you get your space with a webhosting company usually that acount comes with web storage space and an FTP account to upload files. You don't need to purchase another FTP acount as you put it from anyone else.

You need some FTP client like Filezilla to upload your website files to godaddy where your site would be showcased.

Hope it helps,

Javier

If you have bought hosting space from go daddy and the domain name you want is pointed at their named servers then you'll just need to set up the ftp details in Dreamweaver and you should be able to upload your site. Defining a site in Dreamweaver is all covered in the manual and the 'help' files.

or a third party ftp program like filezilla or cute ftp etc
