ok thanks I thought that was what I was doing all along.
one last time I am going to go through this in case what I am saying is not clear.
I don't want to move the blog on wordpress over, I know I have to do that myself using export etc. I just want to move the domain name that I own over. Like you say, change the registration.
I was told that to do this I had to go into my domain management on wordpress and update the nameservers, then hostgator can propigate the move and add the domain to their hosting service.
They game me two nameservers to use to redirect the domain name (not the blog)
I went into my domain mangement, followed all of the directions and where the two wordpress nameservers are, I tried to change them to the two I was given by hostgator.
They won't delete.
So I thought maybe I had to add the two nameservers as well. So there would be four.
Then once hostgator moves my registration over, the two wordpress nameservers would be removed.
It sounds like we are talking about the same thing that needs to be done but in two different ways.
<b>If your domain(s) are hosted here, choose 'Default Hosting Nameservers.'
If your domain(s) are parked here, choose 'Default Parked Nameservers.'
If your domain(s) are hosted somewhere else, choose 'Custom Nameservers.'
Default Hosting Nameservers (NS1.WORDPRESS.COM, NS2.WORDPRESS.COM)
Default Parked Nameservers (NS1.WORDPRESS.COM, NS2.WORDPRESS.COM)
so I can't change this to the Host gator ones? sorry for this I am just confused
