    To enter your URL (domain) is part of the process.

    You need to contact a provider where you want your site to be hosted. Such a package is usually combined with a URL (domain) you like to use. Make sure you choose a provider where the minimum and recommended system requirements fit your wishes.

    All you need is to download vBulletin from your customer area. There are no more programs needed.

        Yes, you need a domain. That's what I meant... So if you just want to test the software before going life, you could work with htaccess at the beginning in order to OK with the software. As soon as you are done to configure you system, you remove the htaccess an the site will be online.

                  GoDaddy should have given you your FTP information to connect to the server. Usually though it is your domain name.

                      When you sign up with them they should send you a welcome package via email. It would be in that package.

                            In FileZilla, once you've logged into the site, you need to navigate to the public_html folder first. Ensure you've unzipped the vB zip file you've downloaded, and navigate into the upload folder within it. Highlight all the folders you see in there and rightclick and select upload (ensure you've edited your two config files before uploading).
