I have read all the articles on both wordpress.com and wordpress.org on how to switch from wordpress.com to wordpress.org but still am having trouble understanding how to switch my domain that I already purchased from wordpress.com to another domain hosting site so I can use it on wordpress.org.
I am looking for a step-by-step guide on how to do this other than what is already out there. Should I first purchase the hosting site and go from there? (When I am going through the registration process on hostgator, It allows me to add an existing domain to my account. Should I do this? Surely it cannot be that easy).
Or would it be easier for my to just delete/cancel my domain name in wordpress.com and then just start from scratch? That would be a last resort I guess ... I doubt someone is waiting in line for my host name but you never know ...
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Obviously I am technically challenged!
The blog I need help with is caitlynblizzard.com.
