I use 1and1.com to host multiple Wordpress sites.  Within their control panel I can set the default folder for each domain.  If you can’t find this in your hosting providers control panel you should be able to get assistance from their tech support.

One site or multiple sites it doesn't matter.  Change the default folder where the domain points (document root) to /worpress.  This will give you www.domainname.com.  Currently you are pointing to / which forces you to have to add the folder location at the end of your domain name.

It would be in the control panel that your hosting provider would have given you to manage your site.  You most likely setup the database for WP in the control panel.  This is different with every provider so you will have to explore it to find the place to make the change.  look for a sectioin or link for domains.  If they did not give you this ablity or you cna't find it call their tech support.
