    Hi there,
    I am having a trouble to log in as an admin to wordpress.
    I though it was the problem with the hosting website, hostgator, but the problem was my domain was urbanedgefashiondotcome.wordpress.com and it redirect to the my purchased domain urbanedgefashion.com

    The it support team from the hostgator said to me that i need to update my domain to point to hostgator. I looked google and youtube , but may i am a only person has that problem because i am not good at the website domain thing stuff.

    how can i remove, or update my domain from urbanedgefashiondotcom.wordpress.com to just urbanedgefashion.com without losing my posts on the blog? Because of this i cannot log in to my admin account and i cannot change my domain with using FTP.
    I am having a trouble and i feel like i am wasting my time and money.

    cheers,
    kacy

    Hi kacy1025,

    I noticed that urbanedgefashion.com is a WordPress.org site.

    What this means is that HostGator is using their own copy of the WordPress.org software, and running everything off their servers. Your WordPress.com username won’t work in this case.

    This support article would help teach you how to move your posts between your old WordPress.com blog and the new WordPress.org one hosted on HostGator:

    For the differences between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may wish to read the support article here:

    Just buy the Redirect Upgrade from your WP.com dashboard and point it at the WP.org blog.
