A few weeks ago I bought a domain via WordPress while creating a wordpress.com and subscribed to a hosting company called globat.
I was very new to wordpress so didn’t know that wordpress.com was quite limited compare to wordpress.org. version.
I found out that blue host was more wordpress friendly and they had clear tutorials etc..
So I cancelled my subscription with Globat ,subscribed to blue host and created a new wordpress.org via their easy installation.
Then I pointed my domain to my new blue host server and my new wordpress.org.
I created a child theme of twenty eleven and starting tweaking my website.
Everything is going all right except one thing that is worrying me…
If I type my domain name on my browser (firefox)
which is http://teletahiti.com I get to my website…but as soon as I go inside pages,or if I click on my header to go to the home page…Then my domain name teletahiti.com disappear from the browser and I get http://126.96.36.199/~teletahi/ instead…
I guess It is my server’s IP…?
Could you please explain me how to sort things out so any browser displays my domain name with a clear structure..
Like if for example I am on the links page, the URL would be
I know that I can change the URL of my website somewhere in settings but I am scared to change anything and take the risk to ruin my website.
Please, a little bit of help would be much appreciated.
Peace and love.
