[Resolved] Bluehost redirecting me to WordPress.com site.

  • Good Morning,

    I have been reviewing the forums to figure out how to fix my problem, and while there are many people with the same question, I am finding it difficult to understand the answers.

    I have a WordPress.com site (satinandsnowflakes.com) – domain purchased through WordPress. I recently bought a theme from outside of WordPress.com and realize that I need a site on .org to install it. I have purchased a domain on Bluehost and installed WordPress with their “one click” option.

    I want to be able to develop my new theme on WordPress.org, but when I try to log into my account (from Bluehost), it directs me immediately to my WordPress.com site.

    Question 1: How do I find my .org site (domain is also satinandsnowflakes.com)and log into it to upload my new theme?

    Question 2: Is there a way to keep the .com site live until I am finished with my .org site?

    I am very very very new to this, so if possible, plain language is best for a reply. Thank you very much, and I apologize if I am repeating a frequently asked question.

    You need to contact the folks over at wordpress.com to arrange for your domain name to be moved to Bluehost and pointed at your.org site.

    Thanks esmi! Just did and they gave me the proper instruction.
