I'm moving my blog from a non-wordpress site to WordPress and a new host. I explained to my new hosting company that my site needs to stay live with my domain name at it's current live location until I rebuild it in WordPress, then I will redirect the nameservers for the domain to the WordPress site with my new host.
Here's my concern: My new host has WordPress installed at:
When I redirect the nameservers for my domain, I want my domain name (byowneruniversity.com) to be in the address field of the browser window (way more professional) as people are moving through the site, not the "temporary" url shown above. I think that I'll be stuck with the temporary url because WordPress appears to be using "absolute url's" when saving posts, photos etc.
My hosting company said not to worry, but I don't believe them. Who's right?
