I picked up a new domain name last night. I added a blog program (Word Press) to the hosting so that I can host my own blog.

I can't figure out how to make the blog appear when the domain is typed in.

Right now its set up like www.iamadummy.com/wordpress (not the real domain).

I would like to have the Blog pop up when www.iamadummy.com is entered into a browser.

I know that "forwarding" and "subdomains" aren't the answer. How do I set this up?

Thank you!

Install WordPress to your root directory, and when you type in your domain name/url, your blog will appear.

[Added info] Install WordPress to
http://your.domain.name.com and NOT

The below option I would say is the easiest option but you need to make sure that the wordpress has a index.html as this will be the default loaded file.
