    Hello,

    I am a complete newbie here. I had a website at wordpress.com (was sweetsinseason.wordpress.com, then I bought my own domain with wordpress.com and switched it to asweetbaker.com) then I decided to go to wordpress.org so I could customize my site more. I bought a webhost at hostgator.com and changed my DNS nameservers on wordpress.com to the ones I was given from hostgator. I even managed to import all my files to the wordpress.org site and upload my new template from Genesis. But now when I try to go to my website it still takes me to the wordpress.com site. Is it because I have to wait for the 60 days to go by or am I doing something wrong. I am a newbie and have been trying to figure all this out on my own. Can you help?

    Hey there, if you look here: http://leafdns.com/index.cgi?testid=23678487 you seem to have the nameservers from wordpress still listed as your primary nameservers this can be because a.you didn't change the name servers, just added the new ones b. the nameserver change hasn't taken effect yet -this is normal, it can take up to three days I think?-

    Thank you so much.....I just added the new hosts, I didn't delete the old ones which I thought I had to since it said required fields. :)
