Pointed DNS to WP and username is totally lost

  1. I bought a domain through I set up a wordpress blog through them (rather than host it on wordpress).
    I experienced quite a few problems, one of which was not being able to log in properly. So I decided to upgrade my service on wp and just move to be hosted there. I changed the name servers on 1and1 so they point to wp. NOW, I absolutely cannot log in. WP tells me the username (everyone I've tried) is wrong & I can't reconfigure it.

    Since WP doesn't recognize the UN and the email I used to set up that account is the same I used for a different wp account, every I reset the pw, it allows me to reset for the the account I don't have a problem with.
    I have tried every possible login it could have been, and nothing is working. HELP! The site I am having the problems with is

    I was hosting my own domain and wanted to map it to wp and I had been having problems with logging in but thought the issue would be moot one I moved to wo but the user name has disappeared into the ether. and I can't access anything now.
