    Hi. I am really new to this whole WP phenom and I have been on blogger for ages. I have everything moved from Blogger & it's already self-hosted. But I purchased a domain through Blogger/GoDaddy and I want to use the same domain (www.ageektragedy.net) I own it, but I can't figure out to go about this. Any type of help would be appreciated.

    WHERE is it? What domain do you type in to get to the migrated blog? I'm really not understanding your question.

    Whoever your web host is, they should have given you a list of "nameservers," something like this:

    ns1.dreamhost.com, ns2.dreamhost.com, ns3.dreamhost.com or
    ns18.adriahost.com, ns19,adriahost.com

    It would be in the welcoming email you got from your web host when you purchased web hosting.

    Then go to your GoDaddy.com account, under domain management, and change the DNS servers there. That should be all you need to do. You will *always* be able to access your site via the IP and account info link you posted above. But once the nameservers on your domain have switched, you can just type in the domain and access it that way. Make sense?

    I actually figured this out since posting. Thank you so much for your help though.

    In case anyone else is ever wondering:
    Anyway, you must have your Google Apps account set-up, if you haven't done so already. (If you bought your domain names through Blogger, you should be able to go to the Google App website and re-request a sign-in for this feature.)

    Once you're in Google Apps, you can log in and then go to "Domain settings" on the top menu bar. From there go to "Domain names" and then down the page you'll see a link next to your domain names that says "Advanced DNS settings". I registered mine through GoDaddy, so once on the "Advanced DNS settings" page, it gives me all my login information for GoDaddy.com. Once you go through all of this and log into whatever site your domain is registered through, you can edit where your domain name points to!
