    I have had my blog for a little over a year now, and I am going to change my blog name and url from the untz and the emo to the untz and the indie. I am going to purchase the domain, but I am wondering how to set up the change in my wp account and seamlessly redirect to the new url. I also want to be sure that none of my data or old posts are impacted. Any insight would be appreciated

    The blog I need help with is theuntzandtheemo.com.

    Thanks timethief! I am getting stuck with:

    1. Update your domain’s name servers to the following. Make sure to remove any existing name servers that are already there.that are already there.

    NS1.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS2.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS3.WORDPRESS.COM

    You can usually change your domain’s name servers at your registrar’s website, but the process is different for each domain registrar…”

    – if I bought my doman, theuntzandtheindie.com, via wordpress, then do I need to do this? If so where?
