Switching to w/ domain mapping

  1. Hi, I just started a blog here and would like to change to I purchased the domain mapping upgrade w/ my own domain from godaddy. Will switching my domain to self-hosted blog be as easy as changing the name servers being that I purchase the upgrade here? Also, is there any way I can get a refund since I just made the purchase 4 days ago? Thank you.

    The blog I need help with is

  2. You're welcome to keep your domain with us and update the nameservers to point to your hosting provider by following this guide:

    After 60 days from the date of purchase, renewal, or nameserver change, you may also transfer your domain to another registrar:

    Unfortunately, your domain purchase has passed the 48-hour refund period. We can still cancel it, but it'll take about 90 days for it to return to the open market.

  3. Looks like their registrar is GoDaddy:

    Then they just need to switch pointing of name-servers after they install WordPress.ORG on where ever their host is. Their blog has nothing in it so no Export / Import issues.

  4. Thank you for your responses. I'm hoping the second is correct. I have nothing in the blog and the domain's Registrar is GoDaddy. So to verify, I just have to change the name-servers to new host. Correct?

  5. Change the name-servers to the new host - Yes

    However your host needs to have WordPress installed on it - that is usually something that you do yourself - some hosts have a "One Button Install" that usually works.

    If you have trouble you will need to make friends over at WordPress.ORG the keepers of the software you will be using:

  6. In that case, all you need to do is change the nameservers with GoDaddy.

  7. Thank you both! As for the refund, since I didn't purchase the domain from you, just the $12 fee to use mine here, is that possibly refundable?

  8. Yes, that can be refunded, but please contact us via to request it.

  9. Great, thank you!

  10. You're welcome!
