Noob WordPress questions

I want to try to build my own website, and I think I want to use wordpress. Do I have to buy GoDaddy's "Managed WordPress" Basic, or can I download wordpress, build a site and upload it to my domain somehow. 


I'm very new at this and am just getting started. Any help would be appreciated.


Hello @Emsumm!


Thank you for posting! You will need hosting in order to have your WordPress site online. You can get our cPanel hosting and install WordPress to it or our Managed WordPress hosting. If you purchase our Managed WordPress hosting, WordPress is already installed and ready to go.
