Transferring domain between wordpress.com blogs.

  1. Hi, on friday I privately contacted support with this query, but they still haven't replied at all.

    I purchased my domain footfault.net via my first blog footfaulter.wordpress.com. I then decided to move it to wordpress.org, but after loads of problems and a recent virus I decided to just create a new blog at f00tfault.wordpress.com and move it all back. How can I move the footfault.net domain from the old wordpress blog to the new one?

    The blog I need help with is footfault.net.

  2. If you purchased your domain name through WordPress.com, here's where you go to change the nameservers:

    If you are an experienced WordPress.com software user, and have the skill sets required to set up and manage your own self hosted WordPress.org install then the instructions for making the move are easy to follow. But if you are not skilled at WordPress.com blogging, and also lack the skill sets required to self host your own WordPress.org install then acquiring those skills first is recommended.
