    I started a page on 1and1 using http://www.paintersofbali.com but all along intended to use http://www.artofbali.com after i moved it to 1and1 from go daddy. I got it moved and in the 1and1 control panel switched http://www.artofbali.com to /wordpress and the forwarded http://www.paintersofbali.com to http://www.artofbali.com. After that it just went to a wordpress page where I couldn't log on.

    I switched the domains back to the original settings and everything went back to normal. Then I went into the options panel and switched the addresses in the two middle boxes to http://www.artofbali.com and saved that. Then i switched the domains back again, making wwww.artofbali.com go to /wordpress. After that the page came up with no. These results were worse. now going to http://www.artofbali.com still just gets me to the "my webblog" screen where I cant log in and when i aim http://www.paintersofbali.com back at /wordpress I get the page but the links in the banner aim to http://www.artofbali.com, which means aims nowhere. To top it all off when I use wp-admin to try to login to edit I get no response.

    I need to find a way to get back into the admin section

    Did you copy the database? Your web host probably has something like phpMyAdmin installed which will help with this. Once you've done that, you will need to edit the wp_options table, changing the blog URL to your new domain name in two places -- probably id 1 and id 40.
