    I realized after signing up for a .com paid account, what I really should have done is the .org/ self-hosted site. I had a registered domain through .com. I’ve followed the directions for transferring to a self-hosted page through bluehost. However, my blog isn’t loading. I’m not sure if I just need to wait another day or if I’ve done something wrong.

    Any help is appreciated

  • Hey jillmanns20!

    It looks like the site is loading through your host Bluehost. Now, there’s still a lot of default pages and copy on your page from your theme. But I see your two recent posts 🙂

    Which specific part of your blog wasn’t loading correctly?

    This could be a caching issue on your browser. Try clearing your cache and cookies on your browser and loading your website again. It’s there!

    Thank you,

    hey there @jillmanns20, it looks like you have to update a few URLs on the settings page in the WordPress Dashboard:
    https://my.bluehost.com/hosting/help/wordpress_url#from_url

    Hi. I see that your domain http://jillybeanreads.com/ is pointing to BlueHost and I see your site loading (USA). It can take up to 72 hours for a site to propagate globally.

    Also, reach out to WordPress.com support if you have any questions about your purchase/refund.

    Lastly, reach out to BlueHost about making sure that your site is using the main domain and not the temporary domain http://box5694.temp.domains/~jillybe9 that is currently showing up for all of your other pages.

    thank you both. My theme isn’t loading and I’m only getting text.
    If I wait, will this resolve? Or do I have to update the URLs to make it work?
    And if I do change URLs, do I have to go back in and change once the domain name is resolved?

    Thank you all for your help & suggestions!! I think everything is working now.
