Support » Installing WordPress » Moving from WordPress.com to WordPress.org hosting on GoDaddy?

  • When I first created my blog, I was using WordPress.com. I paid to have my URL changed to a “.com” rather than “.wordpress.com”. I installed WordPress in GoDaddy (using the same domain name). However, every time I try to login to WordPress.org, I am redirected to WordPress.com. How can I fix this?

    My URL on WordPress.com was already a “.com”, we’ll call it example.com. I was hosting example.com through GoDaddy and using WordPress.com. I don’t want to use WordPress.com anymore. However even after installing WordPress, I am still being redirected to WordPress.com.

    We cannot help you. Please read that page and the associated page on cancelling domains.

    dreamsandegos,

    If I understand correctly, you have a domain name that was registered through your WordPress.com account and you used to also use WordPress.com for your blog. You now want to use Go Daddy to host the blog using the same domain name that is managed at WordPress.com.

    My best guess is that you still need to change the nameservers for your domain name to point to Go Daddy’s nameservers. To do this, you should follow these steps:

    1. Determine the correct nameservers for your hosting account at Go Daddy. This guide tells you how to find them – http://x.co/gkLy

    2. Go into your WordPress.com domain management area and apply the nameservers you collected in step 1. This guide tells you how to do that – http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/domain-management/

    After you set the nameservers, your domain name should be properly linked to your hosting account. Note, though, that it can take anywhere from a few minutes to 48 hours for the nameserver change to take effect across the globe.
    If this isn’t the solution to your problem, you may want to reply with the actual domain name you’re using so we can take a closer look at what’s really going on.

    Good luck,

    I’m going to give that a try. The actual domain name is fasasha.com.

    OK, excellent. Now that I know the domain name, I was able to check the current nameservers to confirm that this is the correct solution. Right now, the domain is set to use the WordPress nameservers which do not point to Go Daddy’s hosting server. When you change the nameservers to the correct set for Go Daddy, your site should resolve within a few hours. Of course, if there is a problem after that, our Support staff is available to assist: http://x.co/gr7c

    I am fed up. Over 1,000 hackers on my site. I want to cancel the whole blog. Not much help from Fat Cow or Word Press. How do I cancel my blog–everything? Thank you.
