Domain transfer from one wordpress blog to another wordpress blog

  1. Hi, I wanted to transfer my URL: Pivotleader.com from my other wordpress.com account to my new one. I tried the transfer information below but now there is no way to receive it on my new wordpress blog.
    Can you please help.

    The blog I need help with is pivotleader.wordpress.com.

  2. To transfer a blog to a different user account you need to be logged in under the username that created that blog. Log in under the username that created the blog and go to the My Blogs page in the dashboard. There should be a link to Transfer Blog when you hover the mouse over the blog title. Enter the username or email of the new account and confirm.

    You will receive a confirmation email at the old account's email address with a link you have to click to complete the transfer. If you don't receive the email, check the Spam folder and inbox tabs if your email client has those.

    Note if you're transferring the blog the new account doesn't have to do anything to confirm or accept the transfer. That only applies if you're adding users.

  3. Thank you so much for your reply. I would like to keep both blog. my first blog has 3 URLs directed to it. I would like to re-direct one of the URLs to my new wordpress blog. Are these the same directions?

  4. Do you mean you have your own domain and you'd like to use it for the blog? If so, you can do that by purchasing the domain mapping upgrade: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/

    I'm going to tag this thread for a staff follow-up, as they can see if you already have domain mapping active and will be able to advise you whether that can be transferred to the new blog or whether you have to buy a new upgrade for that. I don't want to give you the wrong advice.

    Please make sure you're subscribed to this thread and be patient while waiting for them to respond.

  5. Hi there,

    I can help you get your domain pivotleader.com where you want it. However, first I need to confirm that you own the domain you're trying to move. Since that domain was purchased with a different WordPress.com account, can you please log in to that account and then reply here to confirm that you want to move it?

    Also, can you please give me a link to the blog you want to use the domain with?

    Finally, do you want to transfer ownership of the blog and the domain to your WordPress.com account angelapivotleader?

    Please let me know if you have any questions about that. :)
