domain with 123-reg but want site to run wordpress (4 posts)

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to this and so confused!

    Basically I purchased two domains with 123-reg, but their website templates are ugly. I want a wordpress one as I am familiar with it. (I run my personal blog on wordpress).

    123-reg aren't been useful saying I just need to 'point' to wordpress and wordpress will tell me what to do. But i can't find any information from wordpress telling me what to do. I need sort of a step-by-step guide.

    I'm meant to ask WordPress which method should I use:
    "Web forwarding
    DNS - using an A record or a CNAME record
    Nameservers"

    So if anyone knows what method I should use, or any clues on how to use my pre-bought domain names on wordpress that would be amazing help. I'm not good with technical stuff!

    Thank you!

    Do you intend to install WordPress yourself. Or use a wordpress.com site?

    I'm not sure what you mean with 'install' - does it have an 'app'?. I have purchased room4pr.com and .co.uk with 123-reg but I was going to use the wordpress site online.

    I was going to use the wordpress site online.

    In that case, you would be using a wordpress.com site. I'm sorry but these forums are for self-hosted WordPress sites only. Please try asking your question on http://en.forums.wordpress.com/
