Wordpress.org and wordpress.com domains

  1. Maybe this has been answered elsewhere, but I could not find any similar thread.

    I have been using WordPress.com for several months and jumped on purchasing a domain in October from WordPress. (ie. brichert.wordpress.com to bradleyrichert.com).

    I am familiar with exporting my blog, but I am not too sure about domains. I would like to transfer my WordPress.com blog to WordPress.org, but I am unsure about how that would work with my wordpress.com domain. Once I purchase a hosting service, would it be possible to transfer my bradleyrichert.com domain to this new service?

  2. I hope these contain the answer and apologize in advance if they don't

  3. Simple. Change the nameserver records (ie ns1 and ns2.wordpress.com currently) of your domain to use the nameservers of your new host.

    Your new host or your domain registar will be able to assist you with that.
