    I have my blog currentlty hosted with wp and I am moving it over to my own domain with hosting @godaddy. I have exported my old blog and imported into the admin panel of the new blog.

    Will my current followers follow me over to the new host?

    Do I need to close my wp hosted blog? I’m not sure what the next step is so I can avoid duplicate web entries.

    Thanks.

    Don’t close it. Leave it in place with a ‘We’ve Moved’ post showing the new address.

    On the self-hosted site, install Jetpack, link it to your .com site here, then come back to this board and post requesting Staff move your followers.

    I need to update my DNS. domain name purchased at WP less than 60 days ago so can’t move but would like to map the domain to a different host. your tutorial is simple but the Admin Panel under Domains/ Edit DNS does not even come close to following it. Please change the DNS records for bloglastcall.com to

    Point the domain A record to 65.254.250.160

    Mx record to mx.powweb.com

    CNAME to bloglastcallcom.powweb.com

    this should not be this difficult. thanks.

    Paul – Please start a new thread for this new topic.

    Hooperschallenge,

    Can you please post the URL of your WordPress.com blog, your WordPress.org blog, and as Not a Woodpecker has noted, you will need to enable JetPack on your WordPress.org installation.

    Cheers!
