I have NOT purchased my domain (www.shootinginthedark.in) via wordpress.com...it was already purchased and hosted on a third-party hosting provider.
I got my hosting provider to change the DNS name servers to point to wordpress.com. I made the mistake of mapping the domain to my wordpress.com blog (at this point of time, I didn't realize that I actually wanted to install wordpress on my own domain & hosting servers).
Question is -- How do I now undo this mistake? How can I move my blog / domain back to my own third-party hosting provider? What settings do I need to change for this & where?
The only similar topic I've found in the support FAQs so far is -- related to transferring domains & hosting providers, but for those domains which were purchased via wordpress.com. Mine is not one of those. Hence, I'm not able to get the "Domain Management" link on my "Store --> Domains" on my Dashboard.
Would appreciate any help on this asap.
PS: If it helps to provide additional context....why I need to host my blog on my own hosting servers is because ultimately, I want to install a custom theme (purchased via third-party wordpress themes...NOT the wordpress.com "premium themes"). For that, I need to be running wordpress on a self-hosted domain.
The blog I need help with is shootinginthedark.in.
