I would appreciate any help that could be provided, as I am stuck at a dead end. I will admit, I am not tech savvy, really.
Here is my issue. I registered my domain name with iPage. Paid for the domain mapping upgrade, and changed the nameservers from iPage to WordPress. No issues.
Then, email didn't work, which wasn't set up before the transfer, but after some research, I understood why.
I emailed the customer support at iPage and they gave me 3 IP addresses and said the MX records need to be updated. However, according to everything I've read, the A records are paired with the IP address, and the MX records are a formatted completely differently.
I have gone through the the tutorials several times and searched the forums for several days trying to figure out what I need to do.
I ended up reversing everything to start from scratch, and currently have my domain (hollykaufman.com) pointed to my wordpress blog (hollsandlolah.wordpress.com), and back on the iPage nameservers.
I want to transfer everything back to WordPress as it was before, but I'm not sure what to do exactly in order to make sure the email will work.
I've searched high and low, and I've come up with every answer on how to transfer a domain name FROM WordPress, but no information on how to transfer a registered domain TO WordPress. Please direct me to the information if I missed it somewhere.
I know this is asking a lot, but if there is someone - anyone- who is willing to help me, I'd appreciate it. I promise, I've looked at every single link that you would normally send me to, and I am still confused.
Unfortunately, iPage customer service hasn't been of much help.
The blog I need help with is hollykaufman.com.
