i started this dicussion over at wordpress.com but they told me to ask here.
here's the thread
basically because my domain http://www.headphonedeals.com violated a TOS on wordpress.com, it won't work on wordpress.org.
i've registered a new domian, but i want to redirect http://www.headphonedeals.com to my new domain name or is that an issue i need to take up with my webhost (hostgator)???
