Forwarding my GoDaddy.com domain

  1. Hi everyone - thanks for looking!

    I bought a domain (www.evancuttic.com) from GoDaddy a while ago and I just started a photoblog that I want to show up when someone types in the domain name. I know how to forward it to my photoblog (its very simple to have something simply redirect to a different website through GoDaddy) but I am afraid once the site is indexed by search engines that it will show up as evancuttic.wordpress.com, not http://www.evancuttic.com. How do I go about combining? these to to make my http://www.evancuttic.com not only redirect to my photoblog. I'm really new at this and appreciate any assistance you could give me. Do I need to change nameservers or something? I checked out the FAQ but it just seemed to advanced for me. If anyone could help me do this it would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks so much.

  2. To redirect your blog from Go-Daddy to your wordpress blog is as follows.

    Go to your FTP and log in to your godaddy account.
    Go to your (INDEX) page, your home page.
    Open that page in the text editor you usually do.
    Look for the
    (html)
    (head) Where you would replace () with <>
    Under the (head) enter this line of code....
    (% Response.Redirect "http://YOUR WORDPRESS BLOG HOME PAGE URL/" %)

    Remember to replace the ( ) with <> at the beginning and ending of this string.

    Republish this page back to your go daddy page and reload.
    When you type in your address, it will go directly to your word press site.

    Hope this helps.

  3. A better solution is to buy an upgrade from wordpress.com for 10 credits. This will allow to repoint your name servers to NS1.WORDPRESS.COM NS1. etc. http://www.robsword.net is a great exampe.
