Determine what you plan to use your Web site for. GoDaddy hosts small business and personal Web sites. Visit the GoDaddy 'Hosting Plans' Web page to view your options (see Resources below).
Decide how much storage and transfer capacity you need as well as how much you're willing to pay. Your storage and transfer needs will be dictated by how large your Web site will be and how much traffic you expect to get. You will also need to decide whether you will be using a Linux or Windows platform for your site.
Log in to your GoDaddy account manger by entering your user name and password.
Click 'My Account,' and then click 'Email.'
Click 'Email Forwarding Accounts,' or click 'Free Products' and then click 'Email Account List.'
Click 'Manage Account,' and then click 'View All.'
Click 'Forwarding Plans,' or click 'Unused Forwarding' if you have not used a forwarding plan previously.
Click 'Add' next to the account you want to forward. Click 'Settings.' In the 'Forward Address' box, type the first part of the e-mail address you want to set up.
Type your Yahoo! e-mail address in the 'Forward Mail To' box. You can make the e-mail a catchall account by clicking 'Yes.' This means all e-mail sent to your unused accounts within your domain will be forwarded. Click 'OK.'

First you need to carefully sit your margarita down. Be careful not to slosh it onto your laptop or get any sand down in the keyboard. This will only take a few minutes and you can go back to living large. The next thing you need to is log into your godaddy.com account in order to manage your domain names.
After you are logged in, hover your mouse over the 'domains' part of the menu. Then select 'My Domains' from the drop down menu. This will take you to the domain manager where you can view all of the domains that you have registered. Chances are if you have made a fortune on the internet you will see several domains listed that are generating you some nice passive income. Carefully select the domain name that you need to transfer by clicking on the box to the left of the domain name.
Now that a domain name is selected the control menu will become available. Choose 'Account Change' from the menu. A new menu will appear where you must enter the new registrant's customer number or login. You must also enter the new registrant's email address. Once complete click the next button to continue.
The next menu will ask you to confirm details about the organization you are transferring your domain to. You will need to fill in details on the organization's name, first and last name of your contact, the new company's address and their phone number.
After this information is entered you will be shown a list of the godaddy.com services that will be canceled when the domain is transferred. Please review that list carefully because it cannot be reversed once the transaction is completed.
Next you will see the 'Domain Name Change Registrant Agreement'. Read through this document and confirm that you have read and agree to the details listed. Then confirm that you do want to transfer the domain and click 'Finish'.
Godaddy will then send a transaction ID and a security code to the new registrant of your old domain name. They will have about 10 days to act on the transfer before the ID and security code expires.
Open Dreamweaver, and then click 'Site' from the main menu. Click on 'New Site' from the site menu to start setting up the new site.
Enter the name for the site that will appear in the Dreamweaver site manager on the 'Site' tab. You can use the website's domain name as the site name to help identify the site. Click on the folder icon next to the 'Local Site Folder' box, and create a directory on your computer's hard disk to store the site files. This directory mirrors the site directory on the remote server.
Click on 'Servers' from the menu on the left of the window to view the 'Servers' tab, and then click on the '+' button at the bottom of the box.
Type in a server name to identify the server. Select how Dreamweaver should connect to the server from the 'Connect Using' drop-down menu, such as through FTP or SFTP. Leave this set to 'FTP' if you are unsure of the connection method. Type in the FTP address of the server, as a domain name or IP address, and enter the FTP user name and password in the relevant boxes.
Type in the directory that corresponds to the root directory of the website in the 'Root Directory' box. For example, if you have to change to a directory named 'public_html' to upload files to the website, enter '/public_html/' in the box. If you are automatically located in the root directory of the website when you log in through FTP, leave the box blank. Type in the root URL of the website in the 'Web URL' box, such as 'http://www.domain.com/.'
Click the 'Test' button to test the FTP connection. You should see a notification appear that the connection has been successful. If the connection fails, double-check all the settings with your Web host to ensure they are correct. Click the 'Save' button to save the settings and close the server window. Click the 'Save' button again on the main window to save the site and close.
Select the new site from the site drop-down menu on the Files panel. Press 'F8' to display the panel if it is not already visible. Select 'Remote Server' from the drop-down menu at the top right of the Files panel, and then click the 'Connect' button to connect to the server. You see all the files held on the FTP server for the site displayed in the 'Remote Server' box.
Click on the file or directory at the top of the remote files list to select it, and then hold down the 'Shift' key while clicking the last file or directory to select all files. Right-click on the highlighted files and click 'Get' to download the files to your computer. You can now edit the files in Dreamweaver and upload changed files to the remote server using the 'Put' command.

Determine the size of the Web page being transmitted. As an example, take a website that consists of 5KB of text and two 20KB pictures. Together the page is 45KB of data.
Determine how many visitors have viewed the page (or are expected to view it). This is how many 'hits' the page receives. For the example page, it received 100 visitors in the past month.
Multiply the number of visitors by the size of the Web page to get the data transfer usage for that Web page. For the example, the data transfer usage for the month was 100 visitors x 45KB = 4,500KB.
Take the average size of all Web pages when calculating the data transfer usage for a large website. Multiply this by the number of visitors and then by the average number of pages viewed by each visitor. As an example, take a site that has five Web pages that are each 20KB, with 1,000 visitors and each visitor on average views three pages. Average Web page size is (20 + 20 + 20) / 3 = 20 KB. 20KB x 1,000 visitors x 3 pages viewed each = 60,000KB data transfer usage.
