Cancel a redirect?

    I’m a little lost and I’m not sure where to start.

    I started with a free, basic WordPress blog. At some point I decided I wanted my own domain, etc etc, so I joined Bluehost. I got a redirect here to point my old WordPress blog to the new Bluehost domain I got.

    I’d like to go back, for various reasons. I want to cancel the redirect from the wordpress.com to the .com and transfer everything to there. Then I’ll just get a redirect from my .com to the wordpress.com. My Bluehost domain expires tomorrow. I’ve exported everything, so it’s all ready to plug into the old wordpress blog.

    But I can’t figure out how to cancel the wordpress redirect. So I’m kind of stuck I guess.

    The blog I need help with is www.afburns.com.

    If you’ve registered your domain through WordPress.com and now want it to point to a blog or website hosted elsewhere then you can do this by updating the nameservers.

    You need to be logged in as the EXACT account / name that purchased the upgrade

    You should be able to cancel the upgrade at:

    Dashboard >> Store >> My Upgrades – should be a cancel or delete option

    Import your content to your existing blog

    You are registered at Fast Domains – you need to change the name servers there on the instructions below

    If you are using email with your domain – see below for the options to keep it working

    I waited until you were here to deal with the fall-out. :)
