I am braving the switch from WordPress.com to .org, and have stumbled at an early hurdle!
I purchased hosting with GoDaddy because that's where I bought my domain. The domain is currently linked to my WordPress.com blog.
In setting up my new hosting package on GoDaddy, I stupidly opted out of automatically sorting out the DNS stuff there and then, deciding instead to manually do it later. It's now later and I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing!
So I've sorted out the whole config bit (the first part of the "famous 5-minute installation"), but now I've reached a stalemate because I can't get any further whilst the domain is elsewhere.
The only thing I have done so far is to go to the domain manager bit on GoDaddy and switch the Nameservers from the "I have specific nameservers..." option to "I have a hosting account with these domains".
I daren't touch anything else in case I do more harm than good!
