    I just purchased new hosting
    transferred my domain name
    click and automatically installed wp software
    i was given a log in username and password to log in my new wp.org/admin
    I follow the link
    log in with my username and password, and it would tell me it is wp.com
    not wp.org
    where do I go wrong? how to log into wp.org?
    thanks

    Did you change name servers at registrar as your domain name is still pointing to wordpress.com
    Nameservers : ns1.wordpress.com
    ns2.wordpress.com

    where ever you registered your domain name you should have a way to change name servers for example if you registered domain name at wordpress.com when you login in wordpress.com account there should some place to change name servers so it points your host. Your host should have provided you with name servers.

    the hosting I bought from bluehost

    here where I got:

    If you are hosting your Web site with us (you have a hosting account with us associated with this domain) or you want to Park or Forward your domain, we will automatically set your nameservers for you.

    I want to park my domains.
    I have a hosting account with these domains.
    I have specific nameservers for my domains.
    Nameserver 1: * Nameserver 2: * Nameserver 3: Nameserver 4:

    so where do I get the new name server? how to find it?

    Did you buy domain name from bluehost or just hosting as you may have registered domain name some where else I see domain name is only ten days old.
    I get this as registrar Registrar : Public Interest Registry

    Your blog is still hosted at your old host. Now you have to move your blog to bluehost.

    i did not register a domain name with blue host, i am suing my old domain name which i registered with wp.com
    the domain name is only 10 days old and I can not transfer it yet, have to wait 50 days
    i change the name server to blue host and waiting for verification

    how do i transfer my blog to bluehost?

    so i change the name server and waitin on the effect to take place on the internet

    but i can not transfer the domain to a different registrar because of the 60 days non transfer period

    so, should i register a new domain with blue host and transfer my old blog info to the new one after instaling wp .org software? or would it beenough after the name server is changed to be able to log into wp.org without being redirected to wp.com?

    Yes. DNS change is enough. You need not change registrar of domain. First you have to install WP at Bluehost and then move your blog to the new host.

    You can leave the domain name at wordpress.com as they are your domain name registrar all you need to do is change the name servers to point to blue host.

    I my self have few domain names that are not registered with my host as when I want to change my host I do not have to go to hassle of transferring domain names all I need to do is change name servers at registrar to new host and all have to do is wait for it propagate.

    Since You have your blog at wordpress.com and if you added any content you will need use Tools>>>>Export at wordpress.com and then import them on your bluehost install.

    ok, thank you very much!
    I did install the WP at Bluehost however when I attempt to log in, it redirects me to my wp.com
    is that because the change of name server has not taken place yet?
    thanks

    yes it takes time to propagate on all networks some times it quicker but normally it take 24 to 48 hours.

    Has propagated on my network as I can see your new install.

    You are redirected to WordPress.com because you did not move your blog from there. You are still hosted at Automattic.

    You are redirected to WordPress.com because you did not move your blog from there. You are still hosted at Automattic.

    I have checked the name servers and they are pointing to bluehost he has already installed wordpress at bluehost and all he needs to do is wait for it propagate on his network and then export and import data from wordpress.com.

    As on wordpress.com you do not have way to backup database.

    @Krishna I am getting error

    The page isn't redirecting properly
    Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

    This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept
    cookies.

    The domain is pointing to
    Nameservers : ns1.bluehost.com
    ns2.bluehost.com

    so it has to be Bluehost

    @govpatel,
    I checked again. The blog is not moved. It is still at Automattic. Now he may be trying to move.

    That is because the domain name is not fully propagated on your isp network.It has on my Isp network.

    The DNS is propagated. That is why you find the above.
