Domain Transfering

  1. Hi. I am trying to transfer a wordpress site over to a GoDaddy domain but keep it hosted with WP. I've added the Wodpress nameservers to GoDaddy but my domain still does not show the wordpress site. The GoDaddy support person said that's all it would take to transfer the domain, but it seems like there is another step I am missing. Any help with this would be much appreciated!!

    The blog I need help with is

    To move your content you need to create an XML export file of your content. It will not include the theme as they cannot be exported. See 3 below.

    1. Hire a web host

    2. Set up a install and equip it with a theme and plugins.

    3. Export your content out of your blog and import it into the install.

    4. Purchase a site redirect upgrade from or if you have domain mapping then update the nameservers

    5. Transfer subscribers and stats. See

    6. Set your blog visibility to private. To change blog visibility to private go to > Settings > Reading scroll to Blog Visibility and choose option 3 . See the guide here
