Support » Installing WordPress » Blogger to WordPress using HostGator

  • I have a domain that I got with Blogger. Here is my issue: I signed up with HostGator and when it asked if I had a domain I entered my crazysimplelife.com. Now I still have that domain with blogger. So when I installed wp and tried to go to the dashboard: http://www.crazysimplelife.com/wp-login.php
    When I do this it says the page is not found. So now I don’t know what to do! When I go look up my domain under whois it says my domain is still with GoDaddy through Blogger. So I am not sure how to change this! Your help is greatly appreciated! What do I need to do on the Blogger side to switch my domain over to WordPress/HostGator?

  • Hey twinsmake5, here is a pretty good explaination on how to move from blogger to wordpress.

    The reason you cannot access the wordpress dashboard via /wp-login.php is because it’s not possible to have two publishing platforms (WP and blogger) simutaneously installed on the same root-domain (here: crazysimplelife.com). So you either have to follow the instructions given in the link above (switch from blogger to WP), or install wordpress in a another folder of your domain, for instance crazysimplelife.com/blog, but not under the root-folder.

    Okay, How do I put it in another folder on the domain? Is that on blogger or hostgaotr?

    I am having a problem getting my domain dynamicnetworkingnow.com to work with WordPress. I have Hostgator as my hosting (got my url from godaddy). Went through Fantastico and cannot get into the back office of my blog. It came up and I worked with it and now I can’t do anyting with it. (Change themes etc.)

    When I do this it says the page is not found. So now I don’t know what to do! When I go look up my domain under whois it says my domain is still with GoDaddy through Blogger.

    You can not have one domain pointing to two servers.

    As is you have your domain pointing to your blogger at Go Daddy as that is your registrar if you want to use domain name at hostgator then you need change DNS name server to point to hostgator.
