First, godaddy hosting, while excellent, has some limits. There are other hosting companies out there without as many limitations. Try to get an inexpensive VPS hosting package with root access. As @profoundtigger said, you need WordPress obtained from http://www.wordpress.org The installation of WordPress is not terribly complicated. The installation will need you to be able to change permissions (google CHMOD) of certain files, and to create and upload some files. So you may need to take some time to research FTP (File Transfer Protocol), WordPress installation and .htaccess file creation. Once you have WordPress installed, you upload (via FTP) the platformpro and platformbase folders to yourwebsite.com/wp-content/themes/ (wp-content/themes is a folder created by WordPress). We should revisit this once you've reached that point. The team here is always available to assist.

you have to install platformpro first before you install platformbase. After that is done activitate platformbase and start customizing

You'll need an FTP program to install the theme. Do you have one right now? If not, you'll need to download it. There are free versions available for Mac and PC (Cyberduck for Mac and SmartFTP or FileZilla for PC). Once you install an FTP program, you can install the theme following the steps Robert (rangelone) posted above. You cannot simply upload the theme via Appearance > Themes.

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.
