Grateful for any support here: I aquired a domain name and wordpress website from the author, .org vs .com, I do not know nor how to determine this. I am excited to learn wordpress, but am new and have few skills. Also, I have yet to down load the latest wordpress software to my macbook pro 2012. My main concern is, how should I go about gaining control of the website or log in for the first time? I am currently using iPage to host the website an my domain name is held at Godaddy. Thank you kindly.
If you’ve bought the domain and blog/site from the author, get the details from them. You’ll need at least the WordPress login as well as the FTP details (so you can download the sites files), and either a login to get you to their control panel to download the SQL for the database, or a recent DB backup file.
Unless you are fully taking over the hosting account and the domain registration account, you will have to purchase these yourself, transfer the domain name, transfer the websites files and set up the database on your new server. You can find more info on just how to do some of those things at Moving WordPress.
