    Hi I'm Hasnol.

    I'm having trouble in transferring my current blog with WP.com to WP.org. I'm using the same web address and hosted my WP.org blog with Go Daddy. The problem is that each time I tried to log-in to my new blog I will be directed to my WP.com blog (old blog). I tried change the WP.com blog to the address that has wordpress in it, that is http://(my blog name).wordpress.com. And also make it private. I tried to delete the blog but it seems that WP.com didn't allow me coz I bought the domain name with them. FYI I already has transfer the domain to Go Daddy. But it still didn't work.

    Well I'm out of ideas, so please anyone help me. Thanks.

    Did you change name servers DNS at wordpress.com to point to Go Daddy server

    Seems like you doing something wrong.
    "hosted my WP.org blog with Go Dadd"

    You need to install fresh WordPress on Godaddy and change the NS of your Domain to point it to Godaddy,
    Change your preferred domain in WordPress.com setting to WordPress.com blog address and import everything from WordPress.com to new self hosted blog.
    YOu might like to pay $15/year to WordPress for keeping your redirection as 301 redirection.

    Hasnol,

    It looks like you have already received some advice. Without looking at your site, it sounds like either the DNS hasn't been updated to be that of the Go Daddy hosting account or it hasn't propagated. I encourage you to reach out to our Support team to ensure everything it set up correctly: http://x.co/WeHelp.
