Putting official www. on blog site (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm relatively new to wordpress and I'm trying to figure out how to put my official web blog address onto the site. I use host gator and right now my blog is reading http://66.7.206.240/~sakul/blog/. I want to put the actual blog address on the site, and I've been watching so many youtube videos on how to do this. Unfortunately I get lost in a lot of the technical language. Please help if you have done this before. I don't want a subdomain. I want the users to type the website name/blog and be that simple. Thanks

    Linh

    I went to Changing_The_Site_URL and tried: Changing the URL directly in the database, but that didn't work. It just must up my wordpress interface. I had to fix it by putting back in the original link.

    I'm trying to use the ftp option where I transfer the folders, but what is the difference between public_html and www in the ftp folder. I for some reason have a blog folder in each.

    Sorry if I sound like an idiot, but I'm not a technical savy person that does this for a living.
