[resolved] Changing To Self Hosted On Godaddy (5 posts)

    Hey! I need help. I am probably gonna switch my wordpress.com blog to a self hosted wordpress on godaddy with windows, is there any bugs or problems with it? The unlimited space & transfer plan is probably what I'll use. I heard from somewhere that 2.7 is slow on Godaddy with a linux plan, but I need to know about windows. Also, since I bought 2 domains from godaddy and one from wordpress.com, how would I map them to the self hosted one? I couldn't understand wordpress.com's e-mail responses. Sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum, or even the wrong website.

    You will need a Linux account at Godaddy for WordPress.

    Also, since I bought 2 domains from godaddy and one from wordpress.com, how would I map them to the self hosted one?

    With the two Godaddy domains, you should be able to point the name servers to the 'default' Godaddy name servers. For the other domain, you need to 'link that domain' to your hosting account, then visit your domain registrar (wordpress.COM) and point the name servers to the Godaddy nameservers. Here's the wordpress.COM instructions on doing that: http://support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/domain-management/

    Once you've done all that, then you will do Tools->Export at your wordpress.COM blog. Then install WordPress at your domain hosted at Godaddy, then to Tools->Import->WordPress to import the data you exported from wordpress.COM.

    What if I don't want to continue on with WordPress since I am buliding my own new website. How can I transfer my registered domain at WP to another place (let's say GoDaddy)?

    You should be able to visit your domain registrar and point your domain's name servers to godaddy's name servers.

    Please talk to your domain register and to Godaddy for pertinent instructions and name server information.
