    I’m looking to switch over to a self hosted blog , i’m wondering about at which point i would pay for hosting and the type of interface i would be using, i’m more than likely going to go with host gator.

    The blog I need help with is caripublic.wordpress.com.

    You need to get hosting before you have a destination to transfer things into. There are host recommendations over at WordPress.ORG.

    Not a problem – you just point the name servers to your new host –

    so when signing up with my new host i would enter the already existing domain and the “happiness” engineers would take care of the rest ?

    There is some configuration of your host – can’t remember what it is, but the host can help – fairly simple if I remember correctly – then yes one of the Staff takes it from there – I would expect the staff would have some questions and information you will need to give them to do the transfer
