On other host servers, I use WordPress as a content management system. Here at Network Solutions, it appears I must install WordPress in a subfolder of my domain, as if the WordPress is secondary to the website. Is there a way around this? I don't want to have to write an htaccess file to redirect my domain to the address of the subfolder. Thank you.

I have manually installed WP in the root directory. That was my solution.

I was going to do the same thing but the ftp transfer kept failing. How where you able to do this? Thanks!

Try using your FTP application to move all WP files up one level into the root. You have to move the directories (such as wp-content) as well.

WordPress can be installed in a subfolder, then you point your domain to that subfolder.
