transfer to wordpress.org

  1. Hi guys,

    I've been going crazy for the last several days trying to figure out how to solve my problem. Simply put, I want to move my wordpress.com website to a self-hosted wordpress.org blog. I purchased the domain and mapping through wordpress.com. Truthfully, I find the wordpress. org software very difficult but I'm willing to learn and get through it so I can have a self-hosted site. I recently purchased hosting with JustHost, but I kept reading negative reviews about it so I cancelled my account (20 bucks down the drain). Actually I keep reading negative reviews about each hosting I consider. I'm now considering 1 and 1 since many of the people I know recommend it.

    I just want to know how I do this? WP says that I have to wait 60 days before I can transfer to another registrar, is that the same as transferring hosts? Is it possible to just delete my blog and domain and start from scratch at wordpress.org? My brain is about to explode. Help!

    The blog I need help with is blogsandcontent.com.

  2. The 60 days is set by ICANN and cannot be changed. Please see this entry as it will answer your questions http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/cancel-domain/
