    Hello,

    I have a blog on blogger under the domain ihearte.com, I want to keep that domain and transfer it over to wordpress but have no idea how I can do this since I purchased the domain through blogger and have Google Apps. What steps should I take?

    Thank you!

    You need to give up the custom domain option and revert to the blogger (blogspot) sub domain first. Then get the DNS and other details before using the domain for WordPress.

    Buy hosting, setup WordPress using the domain and move the sight if you like to import the same contents.

    Okay, so what I did was buy Domain Mapping, is this the same as hosting? I only ask because I know I have a renewal coming up soon with the domain on blogger that I want to use on WordPress. Is that the same or different? I'm sorry to ask so many questions but thank you so much for your help!

    Are you wanting to have your site on WordPress.COM or self-hosted on a hosting service using software from WordPress.ORG? See this re: the difference:

    What you did is on .COM, but these forums are only for self-hosted .ORG sites.
