Complete newbie – I want to transfer my blog to a .com domain name. Confused
I’ve had a WordPress blog (racheldonnelly.wordpress.com) for a while now and I’ve decided I want to transfer it to a .com domain name.
While I have some experience of MySQL, PHP and HTML it’s probably not enough for me to be able to set up my own databases and all that. I really don’t know. So, I’m looking at web hosting providers that offer one click installs.
Firstly, I am NOT looking for recommendations, just a list of web hosting companies that people are aware of such as Register365.com that do provide this service. Since I live in Ireland should I go for a web hosting company here or a recommended one in the US?
Secondly, can someone explain what exactly happens with the one click installing? Do I still need to make a database etc or does it do all that for me? How do I back up my blog?
I know it sounds like I haven’t a clue but please don’t reply and say “you’re better off staying on WordPress”. I’ve made up my mind that I want my own website and I’m willing and prepared to learn if I have to. I’m just trying to avoid complications by doing this as easily as possible.
