Might be a dumb question, but I'm having serious difficulties.

On my site (shinybuttons.net), I was tired of the limited options, no plug ins, etc. so I decided to move my site to webhostinghub and go with wordpress org.

I installed wordpress to my site via the cpanel/fantastico, and I noticed no change. On the tutorials for transferring a site over, you are supposed to export the files, then import them to the new site. My problem is, Im still on the same site. I can't get it to change, and I still have all the exact same options as I did before. I have no idea what to do. How do I make my site a wordpress org site, where I can use plugins and such?

Hello Westen,

I'm sorry you're having trouble transferring your site from WordPress.com. If you were using your own domain name at WordPress.com and this is the same domain you will be using for your site here with us, please see our instructions for using WordPress through your temporary URL until you point the domain to our Nameservers.

I have also updated our article on http://www.webhostinghub.com/help/learn/wordpress/304-transfer-wordpresscom-websitetransferring a WordPress.com website so that this information is clearly stated. We do apologize for the confusion not having this information in that article surely caused.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions or need further assistance.

Regards,

Christi N.
