Transferring my custom domain name at WP to another site

  1. I am trying to publish a blog I have created on Yola to this domain name, entertainingwelseyshaw.com, which I bought through WP. Yola does not yet support outright transfer of domain names. So it says I must
    1. Log in to your chosen domain registrar.
    2. Go to the DNS Management page.
    3. Set up two A Records.
    4. The IP address of the records must point to: "208.75.208.172"
    Can someone tell me how to do this with my domain that I registered in WordPress. Thx.

    The blog I need help with is entertainingwelseyshaw.com.

  2. You are not able to add A records if your domain is registered through WordPress.com. You can, however, update your Nameservers to point to your new host (you would need to ask your new host for the appropriate Nameservers that you must use). You can check out http://support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/domain-management/#update-name-servers for additional details on making those changes.

    Your other option is to wait 60 days (since the domain's registration/purchase) and then transfer it to another registrar, one that does allow the configuration of additional A records: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/domain-management/#transfer-to-another-registrar
