Can I use the domain i got from u in another page?

  1. Hello

    I purchased the domain registration (haphotographer) from you to use it in my blog, but now I have a main web page with a different domain name. but the brand name haphotographer has become my main business name.

    Can I get back to wordpress.haphotographer.com and map the haphotographer.com domain to be used in my main page? If so, how can I do it?

    Thank you in advance for your reply and best regards
    Blog url: http://haphotographer.wordpress.com/

  2. Sorry, I meant haphotographer.wordpress.com

  3. Right now, http://haphotographer.com/ is correctly mapped to http://haphotographer.wordpress.com/

    If you mean to point your domain to another site and cancel the current mapping, please see this page for instructions on how to do that.

    Depending on the option you choose, http://haphotographer.wordpress.com/ will either be visible on its own or redirect to your new site.

  4. Thank you for your reply vanillalounge. I still want to keep my wordpress blog but want to use the domain name in my photography page (change humbertoabed.com to haphotographer.com) and the instructions show me how to change the domain name to another wordpress blog. is it possible?

  5. In that case you just need to update your nameservers to point to your new host:

  6. Hello again.

    I've been trying to do this with no luck. When I get into the DNS settings I click on I have a specific name server and write "zenfolio" (which is the name of the server where I'm hosting my site) but keeps telling me that Nameserver not registered.

    Zenfolio instructions are different though. They ask me to ad @ A and the IP but I don't find where to do that in WordPress.

    Hope you can help me

  7. Hi there, sorry for the delayed response. Are you still looking for the answer? Just "zenfolio" does not seem like a correct nameserver, you should have something along the lines of "ns10.zenfolio.com" - please contact your host for specific nameserver values.

  8. Hi Jenia:

    I'm going crazy with this thing. I sent your comment to Zenfolio and this is what they replied, hope you can help me on this. Thanks!!

    Hi,

    You dont want to do anything with the nameservers, this is only if you are looking to TRANSFER your domain to another domain host.

    You only want to POINT your domain to your Zenfolio account.

    You can send them these instructions on how to set up an Arecord and they should understand:

  9. Hi there,

    It looks like Zenfolio requires A Record change for your domain. However, domains registered at WordPress do not have the option to change A record.

    If you want to use the domain with your Zenfolio site, you can try one of these two options:

    New Registrar

      Transfer the domain out to another registrar that allows A record change.
      This guide explains how to transfer the domain name to another registrar.

    Subdomain

      Use a subdomain instead of root domain. An example of subdomain is "blog.example.com".
      To create a subdomain, please follow the instructions here:

    Please let us know if you need any help with this!
