Changing web host & domain name... Possible? (5 posts)

    I've worked on web updates in the past, but never created a complete redesign. I went about building a test website the wrong way. I used a domain name that I already owned so that I could see my updates live. Now I need to take my client from 3zhosting to something like HostGator so that it seamlessly works with WordPress.com, right? Next, I would need to swap my current domain with that of my clients, right? Shouldn't be too bad considering the old site files aren't being used for the new site.
    Little lost, can you tell?
    Please be gentle.

    WordPress.COM ?? That's unrelated to self-hosted WordPress.ORG sites.

    But this may be what you want:

    Current test site was created on WordPress.org.

    So then what does this mean?

    it seamlessly works with WordPress.com, right?

    Or was that a typo?
