Domain Redirect Question and Domain Transfer

    Okay, two issues here…

    I purchased my domain from wordpress for an old blog i dont use anymore. I now want that domain name (1) transfered to my new webhost (hostmonster), and (2) have it pointed at a page on my new website URL.

    But since I just renewed the URL here I have to wait 60days before I can transfer. So….

    In the meantime I want to REDIRECT my domain name purchased from WP to a NEW WEBSITE (not one related to the original WP blog I bought it for). Usually pointing a domain URL to any other URL should be simple. I’ve dug through the support docs for an hour and can’t figure out how to point it to a different URL. The DNS change stuff here is only to point my URL (me.com) to my blog (me.wordpress.com).

    Does this make sense? Its a simple redirect. WTF?

    Thanks.

    So basically I want my domain here (me.com) that use to point to (me.wordpress.com) to point to another page on a different website (you.com/other). Then eventually transfer the whole URL to my new webhost. Yeah?
