I would like to suggest adding 'Movable Type' to the blogs in Quick Install.

Most of the blog programs have a movable type API or plugin.

That said, I will pass your suggestion to our programmers.

I have installed Wordpress with a 2nd domain and I've tried about 10 time and I don't get the blog after I installed......does ANYONE know what I'm doing wrong, this is beyond frustration.

Sounds like you may need to point your domain's DNS to HostGator.

Please contact us via email, phone or live chat for fast assistance.

Does QuickInstall update the software after they are installed? Or do we have to install any updates manually? Thank you.

You can update the version automatically via the QuickInstall page. Just click the name of the program and you should see an update link (if a new version is available).

Can you update through WordPress directly when you install with QuickInstall?

Yes, you have a real copy of WordPress which will remind you of updates in the wp-admin section. The reminder includes a link to automatically upgrade.

Since that is not part of QuickInstall, I recommend you perform a full backup before using the auto-upgrade link in wp-admin. New versions sometimes have bugs or they are incompatible with your favorite themes and plugins, so you want to have a backup in case you were happier before the update.
