    Hi there,

    I want to move my blog from wordpress.com to wordpress.org. I have seen and read the page that explain how to export content, but I am unsure of how to move my url.

    Dor this simply move when I export everything? How can I ensure I keep the same url?

    Your help is appreciated.

    If you have your own domain name (i.e. it does not contain wordpress.com), then you need to change the nameservers to point to your new host. Where is your new site going to be hosted?

    Thanks for the help!

    I'm thinking of going with bluehost. So I sign up with them (or someone else) and follow the instructions as outlined above and then my people who enter my url will automatically be directed to my .org site?

    I am in sort of the same boat except :) I have to press the buttons myself and its a challenge because I have mmd/als . . . I have had a blog for years, currently I was on .com where I have 400 posts. I am hosted by Network Solutions which works fine. However, it appears that I also have a .org WP site and I pressed the button for that before checking and now my Blog has disappeared. How do I get it back, how do I merge my .com to .org? Can it be done? Thanx in advance . . . Richard.
