I became familiar using wordpress.COM, and realized that I was barking up the wrong tree. I'm now setting up my hosting, and downloading the wordpress software from this site to use to setup my site.
I plan to "register", I believe it's called, my domain name (like, "Ogodric'sStuff.com"). On wordpress.COM, there was a link to "buy/register" the domain, on their site. My question is, if I'm hosting it on hostgator, and using the wordpress software from wordpress.ORG, where and how do I register my domain name? Or is that something I should go back to the wordpress.COM setup if I need to do?
Thank you in advance, any and all help is greatly appreciated! Happy Holidays! :)
