    And when i go to WordPress settings it says that the Page is stagging,when i click to remove it from stagging it says that its sucessfully removed but its not..When i go to WordPress.com it still says that i'm in stagging mode..How to put my domain on the WordPress site is my question?!

    Re: Cant make my domain to be on my wordpress site

    @adn let me get this straight.

    You bought deluxe managed wordpress website, and used a temporary domain name in order to make your site, right?

    But now, you want to use the domain name that they offer you for free when you contract the wordpress hosting?

    Why do you mention wordpress.com? Are you using a site in wordpress.com and want to migrate it to godaddy?

    Re: Cant make my domain to be on my wordpress site

     

     
    So let me try to explain:
    I wanted to open my website,to create and customize it with WordPress (becouse its easier).So i bought the Deluxe Managed WordPress Website from GoDaddy (also when i was buying the Deluxe Managed WordPress Website it asked me for a domain name,so i wrote the name i wanted to have).After i bought it,there were steps that i needed to finish,so i can set up my site (inc. WordPress account,theme and something like that) and start to customize it with WordPress.After 2-3 weeks of customizating and making my website,i finished it and made it how i wanted it to look.So now i want my website to open using the domain i wrote when i bought the Deluxe Managed WordPress Website,and not from the link i have when i customize my WordPress website.The link i got to open the site is something like with numbers and latters.So how to make,so people can open my website that i made using the domain name i want! If you dont understand me,i can provide images !

    Re: Cant make my domain to be on my wordpress site

    @adn I think you have a misconception of what the WP hosting actually is. You don't need a WordPress.com account in order to use the WP hosting plan you contracted. However, since you have a WordPress.com account you can import your site to your hosting account.

     

    Do you mind sharing the links? I mean, a link to your WordPress.com site and a link to yourdomain.com

     

    EDIT: Oh, I asume you have been accessing your site via a temporary domain name, and now you just want to have yourdomain.com in order to visit your site. Well, you can assign the domain name in your account panel to point to your WP install

    EDIT2: Yes, please. Include images if you can Smiley Happy

    Re: Cant make my domain to be on my wordpress site

    Question 1: What the WP hosting actually is?

    Yes,i think i'm using some temporary domain,and i want to have my domain now..So everyone can open the site from that domain,and not from this **bleep**ty one..The temporary domain is going something like this [random numbers and latters].myftpupload.com..

    And i dont even know if i have a Cpanel,i dont know how to open my hosting..I can only see this shown on the picture below..I'm editting my site and doing everything from WordPress.

    Re: Cant make my domain to be on my wordpress site

    @adn Please, click in Settings (see, you have My account / WordPress / Settings / Staging), then click in options(Server options) and then in Change Domain.

    If you don't see yourdomain.com, click in Add domain and check Make this the primary domain, and finally click Add.

     

    Let me know if it helps!

     

    EDIT: I misunderstood you, that's why I said I thought you had a misconception of what WP hosting is. I thought you created a WordPress.com account (blog), and then bought the WP Hosting, and tried to mix your GoDaddy WP Hosting with your WP.com site.

    Re: Cant make my domain to be on my wordpress site

    I did that already 100 of times,but it still doesnt work.When i go there,i get this.Under the domain i want to make primary i get that DNS error massage.

    EDIT: Also when i go to Settings in WordPress it says Note: This is your staging site and the domain cannot be changed.

    @adn have you tried click in that blue bar that says: "It's time! .... Use a purchased domain"?

    Do you mind posting your DNS settings for your domain?

    @adn I answered back your PM, but it's ok if you don't feel comfortable with it.

     

    And if you try to access to your site via the myftpupload.com does it redirects you to yourdomain.com or can you access the site?
