    Hi.
    I have a blog happytelegram.com and today I tried to change its name to positiveromania.com
    After I changed the name and pressed the button Save , the page loaded and it gave me error, saying that the page positiveromania.com cannot be found.
    Now, whenever I try to log in using the http://happytelegram.com/wp-login.php, it shows me this

    Positive News from Romania

    Username

    Password

    Remember Me

    Lost your password?

    ← Back to Positive News from Romania

    and after writing my password and everything and press enter I get this message
    Oops! Google Chrome could not find positiveromania.com

    What should I do? How can I access my blog?

    Well, my issue is that I am new at this and it all looks like Chinese to me. I don’t quite understand. I downloaded that phpmyadmin but I can’t seem to be able to install it.
    It’s all very confusing.

    I am sorry it is confusing but that is “help.” Just follow it thru step by step. Also have you contacted your host? They may be able to roll you back to a time before you changed anything.

    I don’t have a host. I myself registered on wordpress and that’s it.
    The thing is that I don’t understand much from the link you posted. I have no idea what to do.

    You show up as a self hosted wordpress site. Maybe octosquid.com is your host. You have to have a host to get to the internet. You must be paying someone for hosting.

    You might want to look at wordpress.com They make wordpress easier for newer users.

    You are also using an outdated version of WordPress. You need to upgrade ASAP.

    Thanks for telling me about the host! The thing is the somebody else bought this domain for me and I did not know that there is a host company. I though wordpress is hosting everything. Well, thanks a lot! I found the name of the company and will deal with them. Hopefully they’ll manage to help me sort this out.
