Last year I added a blog (muddpuppycosmetics.wordpress.com) to my wordpress account. I then registered the domain name muddpuppycosmetics.com through wordpress. A short while later I decided I need to have a different format and so updated the nameservers so that that domain would be hosted through Hostgator. Everything worked fine after that. However I now have a NEW problem.
For simplicity's sake I would like to transfer my domain registration over to a different registrar. I've already paid for the transfer over there and am now needing to 'unlock' the domain here at WordPress and obtain a "valid authorization code" from WordPress to do this. I have followed the instructions step by step found in the support section of WordPress but run into a snag when it tells me to click on 'Domain Administration' under 'Domains' which is in turn under 'Settings'. The snag is there is no option for a "Domain Administration". Also, the only domain that is listed is denimndaisies.wordpress.com (the blog I am keeping at WordPress). No sign of the muddpuppycosmetics.com at all, and no sign of any way to get into the Domain Administration so that I can ask for the authorization code.
I find this extremely confusing as the domain muddpuppycosmetics.com that I registered/purchased through WordPress is not scheduled to expire until the end of the month. Also, the website (being hosted through HostGator after updating the nameservers) IS still functioning properly.
I have only wks to get this problem figured out before we lose our domain name. Can someone please help?
The blog I need help with is denimndaisies.wordpress.com.
