I remember the first time I bought a domain from GoDaddy and they had all these extra offers that made me confused. I ended up buying some additions that weren't necessary at all.
What you need is a basic hosting package and nothing else from the hosting.
Constant Contact is an email marketing service that you can purchase separately later on once you want to start collecting email addresses from website visitors.
Domain privacy you may want to purchase because it helps to protect your private contact information from people who try to find it. But I usually buy this feature from the registrar, not hosting.
Site backup pro is a backup service. Backup services from hosting can be very expensive for some reason. You can backup your site manually for free using a Wordpress plugin.
Search engine jumpstart I'm a bit suspicious about this one because it probably only does something that you can figure out on your own and doesn't take long to do. Either way, you can optimize your site for search engines later on after you've added content.
Site lock security is a security feature to protect your site from hackers and malware. You can also do this with a free Wordpress plugin to get the basic security features.
That said, I use hosting that costs $0.75 per month and my site runs fine as fast as ones on hosting that costs $9.95 per month.
I hope that helps,
