Transfer from wordpress.com to wordpress.org

  1. I am trying to import my xml on my new wordpress.org site but when I click upload it then says everything already exists so I was wondering do I have to delete my site in order to make this switch?

    And if I delete it will I still have my registered domain name or does that get deleted as well?

    The blog I need help with is allisonmurphypr.com.

  2. No, don't delete your site. Just set it to Private and then you can maintain the domain management here, where it's quite cheap.

    It sounds like you already imported things to the WP.org site; check it and make sure. Check older posts and media as well.

  3. I already paid for hosting with hostgator so I am trying to just use wordpress.org and the people at hostgator told me to delete my old site on wordpress.com in order to transfer it

  4. They told you wrong, I assure you. Set it to Private and follow these instructions to point the URL at your new site: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/move-domain/
