    I want to delete my account/site or redirect my address. I have never hated anything more than I do wordpress. Someone please help me get out of this mess!! The domain was purchased through google.

    I want to move the domain incollegedems.org to incollegedems.weebly.com

    I created a website with Weebly and need to point my domain to their servers. Can you set this up for me or walk me through the process of making these changes? I need to create A-Records for "www" and for my root domain. That's one record for "www" pointing to 199.34.228.59. And one record for the root domain pointing to 199.34.228.59.
    If you need more info on these changes, please see:

    Note that I want to keep using you as my domain registrar. I am not requesting a transfer and do not have new name servers to provide you.
    Thanks!

    WordPress.ORG does not host any sites, nor register any domain names. Perhaps you need to be on the WordPress.COM forums? See:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    In that case,

    you need to contact your hosting company to help with setting up the redirection.

    WordPress.org only provides the free download of the software and is not involved in domains or hosting.

    if you need to export your existing data, review http://codex.wordpress.org/Tools_Export_Screen

    lyncoop I have exactly the same problem as you!

    my brother and I decided to set up an online store together as we were both made redundant from our jobs. he setup with wordpress whilst I did the admin stuff for the business.

    now he's got a job and I am left with a website which needs code to do anything with. I do not understand computers at all. At 50 years old I'm finding it very hard to learn this wordpress stuff. I have tried wix, weebly, squarespace and DEFINITELY wordpress is not for people who don't know how to code.

    I want to shut down my website with wordpress, get rid of the domain name and get my money back for the domain name.

    also wordpress's updating of software is terrible. I have logged into a blank screen. I have downloaded the wordpress 3.8 but now need to get a PhD in IT to understand how to upgrade my present version of WordPress.
    I would never recommend wordpress to anyone but someone very experienced with code.

    @adilhash - what is the site URL?

    Also note that WordPress.ORG does not charge for anything so you cannot get any refunds from WordPress (unless you are talking about WordPress.COM in which case you are on the wrong forums - but even there you cannot get refunds on domain names).
