I am getting a database error when installing CiviCRM on a WordPress website hosted by Go Daddy. The error is: 'Could Not Create a Database Trigger.' I've seen several online posts about Go Daddy not permitting the use of triggers on MySQL 5.0. Is this still in effect? Is there a work-around?

The answer is "yes", and "no".

I would strongly discourage using GoDaddy shared hosting (or almost any shared hosting) when running CiviCRM for any non-trivial use. It's going to be slooow and possibly non-functional (as in your case).
