    I just signed up with bluehost and I am trying to get them to support my blog and its domain name(www.cocoareport.com).When I registered with bluehost I registered my domain name I have with wordpress.com. I was told that through blue host that I would be able to transfer everything over but now I am being told that I need to contact wordpress.com to get my domain name transfer over to blue host. What I am trying to do is transfer my blog and all of its contents to my new web host(blue host) I am unsure what to do. I just want to move my blog and domain to wordpress.org/bluehost with out the guided transfer fee.

    The blog I need help with is cocoareport.com.

    a simple search in the support doc’s on move .com to .org give you this:

    Under domain management you can either transfer your domain to Blue Host or even easier just change where the name servers point and point them to Blue Host.

    Yes, BlueHost should tell you what to enter as nameservers.
