Already bought domain name at wordpress.com. Need to transfer everything to .org (4 posts)

    Hi

    I signed up to wordpress.com at cherylmarkosky.wordpress.com and bought the domain name cherylmarkosky.com, which it now directs to.

    Didn't understand the whole .com vs. .org situation back then, so bought a theme and now need to transfer the whole lot to .org in order to install said theme.

    This is where I am stuck. I am not at all experienced at hosting my own thing, or FTP, so in layman's terms, what do I do now? As I bought the domain from wordpress.com, I don't have a clue about how to access the hosting side of things.

    I'm sure this has been answered before, apologies, I didn't know where to start looking.

    Thanks

    Jack

    No one here has anything to do with WordPress.COM so you may instead want to post that question to the .COM forums instead.

    You need to buy webhosting space.
