    Could someone please help? If not, could someone please tell me how to contact WordPress.org?

    You have contacted WordPress.org – this is it :). I’m a bit confused – where is your site physically located now (i.e. did you move the files and database from Dreamhost)? Where are you intending to host it? Your DNS would need to be set to wherever you plan to host the site.

    I had installed WordPress using DreamHost’s one-click installs. DreamHost one-click installs hosts the WordPress.org site on DreamHost. However, you have to pay DreamHost for the hosting, and when I cancelled my DreamHost hosting, my access to my WordPress.org files was no longer available.

    DreamHost explained to me that I had to re-host the site on DreamHost to access the site. I re-hosted the site, accessed the site, and moved the data to Google. 🙁

    I want to use WordPress. I realise this is a WordPress.com question on the WordPress.org site, but just to confirm: I can post a site at WordPress.com for free, and then set my DreamHost DNS for mcintire.jp to go to, for example, http://mcintireallen.wordpress.com, correct?

    yes, you can do it.
