Shifting Domain Away From WordPress Registrar

  1. We started as a paid wordpress site, hosted by wordpress, however we have now decided to host the site ourselves as part of our existing website.

    How do I either
    a) redirect the DNS for so that it points to as a cloaked redirect?
    b) How do I transfer the domain away from WordPress' control and move it to a preferred registrar that can provide me with full DNS management and support?
    Despite paying a premium for the domain name, I have not been provided with any domain password or registry key.

    Can I get my domain back into our company's control?

    The blog I need help with is

  2. Domain Management
    If you’ve registered your domain through and now want it to point to a blog or website hosted elsewhere then you can do this by updating the nameservers.

  3. Awesome thank you - exactly the info I was looking for.

    One more question though - how do I remove the Private Whois? The domain won't transfer away while the private whois is enabled.

    I've tried cancelling my bundle, but the auto email sent to confirm cancellation of the bundle provides a dead link. But I'm not sure that's the solution to cancelling private whois anyway.
