Moving wordpress.com blog to wordpress.org/bluehost

  1. I just signed up with bluehost and I am trying to get them to support my blog and its domain name(www.cocoareport.com).When I registered with bluehost I registered my domain name I have with wordpress.com. I was told that through blue host that I would be able to transfer everything over but now I am being told that I need to contact wordpress.com to get my domain name transfer over to blue host. What I am trying to do is transfer my blog and all of its contents to my new web host(blue host) I am unsure what to do. I just want to move my blog and domain to wordpress.org/bluehost with out the guided transfer fee.

    The blog I need help with is cocoareport.com.

  2. a simple search in the support doc's on move .com to .org give you this:

    Under domain management you can either transfer your domain to Blue Host or even easier just change where the name servers point and point them to Blue Host.

  3. Thanks! I am technology challenged how do I change where the name servers point and point them to Blue Host?

  4. Clicking the "update your nameservers" in the above page gets you here:

  5. Ok thanks! I am following the directions now. I am at the part that says "select I have a specific nameservers for my domain. Do I need to get my nameservers from blue host and use those to replace the current nameservers I have

  6. Yes, BlueHost should tell you what to enter as nameservers.

  7. Thanks for all the help! Everything has been transferred!
