    Hello, I'm trying to set up my current blog, which is through wordpress.com, on wordpress.org. I have purchased hosting through Blue Host and gone through the installation via Blue Host for Word Press. I've watched tons of videos on how to transfer the blog over and would love nothing more than to do that. I'm running into a problem though. Once I've installed it gives me a link to click and a temp password to login. Only problem is it is still going to wordpress.com. How in the world do I get to login to wordpress.org? When I visit the site there are options for downloading and installing wordpress.org but I've already done that through Blue Host, right? Any help/advice you can offer is appreciated! Sorry, I'm so clueless.

    Thanks in advance,

    Nelly

    If you are using your own domain name at .com site you need to change name servers at registrar to point to bluehost once done it may take 2 days to propagate fully in network

    Too many assumptions in the wordpress directions.

    Trying to move my wordpress.com to wordpress.org. Thought the point of doing that is that it was hosted. Do I need to buy a hosting service before I do it or what?

    Yes - you need buy hosting and possible a domain name.
