This has been asked, but not quite with this specific problem, please bear with me:
I have an existing wordpress.com blog. The domain was registered with goDaddy, with the namesservers and forwarding pointing at wordpress, so that the connection was seamless. On the wordpress side, the blog was set to exist on the domain (www.monavoir.com), not the wordpress address (www.monavoir.wordpress.com).
I want to host myself now. I purchased hosting with goDaddy. I downloaded the wordpress software onto my hosted site. I have an address for it (www.monavoir.com/wordpress/) I turned off the forwarding. I set the names servers back to the goDaddy ones, instead of the wordpress ones. I went back to wordpress and put the blog location back to wordpress (www.monavoir.wordpress.com.
Logically, I should have to sites.... my wordpress one that holds my current blog (www.monavoir.wordpress.com) and my hosted site with my domain which has nothing (www.monavoir.com) except the wordpress software in a directory.
But, when you go to my domain now, it forwards you to the wordpress site. http://www.monavoir.com forwards to http://www.monavoir.wordpress.com help. I can't even transfer the blog and delete the wordpress.com site because I can't upload to my hosted site because I CAN'T GET TO IT because it forwards to the wordpress site.
Egad. Any ideas?
