    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).

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