How to change name servers? (9 posts)

    Hi

    I just registered with a new web host and wanted to keep the domain name the same.

    I've heard that you need to change the domain nameserver settings.

    I believe I registered my domain name with wordpress.com, but now that I'm using wordpress.org (installing wordpress to the website myself turns it to wordpress.org right?), I can't find the option to change the name server settings.

    Can someone please guide me through this?

    Thank you so much!

    Please contact your current web host for help with this, this is not a .org issue, it's a host issue...

    Thanks for your reply!

    Yes I did but since I didn't register my domain name with them, instead I registered my domain with wordpress.com, I have to change the nameserver in wordpress right?

    wordpress.com is a free blog host unless you pay you cannot change the domain.

    Please see:

    @tee.shiu Can you ask this to WordPress.com?

    But apparently I changed from wordpress.com to wordpress.org?

    I downloaded the wordpress from this site and installed it myself in order to customise my theme for the website.

    If you have a WordPress.com domain name then you need to talk to WordPress.com.
