I have a domain ( which I just registered at another provider. I can't transfer it to the hub for another 60 days.

In the meantime, I would like to create a Wordpress blog hosted on my hub account, and point the domain to the hub-hosted blog.

How do I do that?

Hello Mikedonatello,

You can actually use your domain name without having to wait on a transfer. You would need to change the name servers to point to our hosting servers, though. The article below explains the necessary change and how to make the name server change.

If you're going to use Wordpress, be advised that you would need to use a different URL if you can't use the main URL. This article explains how this works:
