  • do you also have hosting with someone? if not, you will need to do that.
    then you will need to assign your domain name servers or DNS – the host you sign up with will help you with this
    you will need to download the wordpress software – link at top of this page- and install it
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress
    or choose a host that has a one click install of wordpress

    if you want to import the content from your .com site to your .org site

    First export all the data from WordPress.com
    Buy a hosting.
    Then go to Godaddy and point the nameserver to your hosting.
    Then..
    Login to yourdomain/cpanel
    Click on “fantastico”
    Click WordPress from left hand menu
    Click on “New Installation” ( Under the big heading “WordPress”)
    Now Do the Following:
    Install on domain: Select Your Domain Name
    Install in directory: Leave blank
    Admin access data: Type a Username and Password
    Admin Nickname: Put yourname or admin
    Admin e-mail (your email address): Your email ID
    Site name: Type your site name
    Site Description: Tag line

    Done. click install WordPress and then finish installation.

    Log in : go to yoursite.com/wp-admin
    type the admin username and password.
    Change the permalink structure.
    Import the database.
    Complete.

    Hi i’ve followed your directions and i just purchased hosting via blue host but I am still getting a .com login when i go to /wp-admin. Should the process be instant or is there a waiting period for the switch?

    Did you point your nameserver to bluehost?
