    I registered my domain with wordpress, however I’ve realized the limitations… not having FTP etc…. How do I transfer the domain to my Hostgator hosting? Do I need to transfer to a different registrar completely?


    The blog I need help with is



    You do not need to change registars in order to use your domain on a site. You set up your install and then simply update the nameservers.

    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. The nameservers control where traffic for the domain goes using DNS. If you are moving from to a self-hosted blog, you can enter the nameservers provided by your web hosting company to switch your domain to their hosting service.
