    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 and it redirect to the my purchased domain

    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 to just 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.
