    when you bought your server they should have sent you an e-mail saying Nameservers or something like that, then take those name servers, go to your domain name host and put in the actual server nameservers. Then it might take a while to actually sync up. After that you're golden. Just create a database if needed, then install wordpress. Sounds a lot worse then it is

    whos your hosting company? if you have cPanel you can check to see if u have Fantastico Deluxe...its a auto install for many of the famous programs/scripts such as Wordpress...its very easy to use.

    Ah, yeah.. you did.

    If you registered a new domain, you don't have to do anything. If you have an existing domain, point the nameservers at ns1.stablehost.com and ns2.stablehost.com.

    Once pointed, go into cpanel, fantastico, wordpress, install.
