any basic hosting should work for you...i would look for something between $5-10 a month. godaddy also has hosting if it might make it easier for you but you will need to see if they will transfer your files from one host to another if you do not know how to do this

When you have your host, you'll then have to update your name servers in Go Daddy so the domain name forwards to the correct host.

if you don't care to use the same domain you had before, the easiest way is to register your domain with godaddy via blogger. I'm just not sure how you'd do it if you wanted to keep it the same as what you had with wedding window.
Steps for getting a personal domain in blogger:
switch to CUSTOM DOMAIN
then just follow the steps- very quick & easy. it's usually $10 a year through godaddy.

:already own a domain- switch to advanced settings
so if you want to keep it the same as your wedding window url, follow those steps.

however, i acquired our url through weddingtracker.com, so they now own it (even though our website has since expired) and now i can't purchase it through godaddy or anyone else- i have to use weddingtracker which is owned by the knot. i hate the knot!

I could probably get it cheaper, but I use Yahoo hosting, which has Wordpress all built in. If you're considering going to wordpress (I like it better) it might be a good option. It's definitely not the cheapest, and I'd rather support a small business, but it's so easy I can't quit it!
