Hi, I am trying to move a website from a Wordpress.com server to the servers here at Wealthy Affiliate. I'm just not too sure how to go about it, without loosing any of the data. Does anyone know how to go about this?

Hi .. Do you want to simply change the hosting to WA or actually change the registrar?

If you want to change the registrar over, you will first want to change the nameservers to host it here as it can take up to 14 days to complete and you will not have access to it while the move is taking place. Here are some tips on which order to do these things in: This training will help you with changing the nameservers to host it here at WA: Once you have changed the nameservers and made sure it is working correctly, you can then begin the process of changing the registrar over if you choose to.

Good luck, Shannon

Hi, thanks, I would like to change both and I'm struggling because I don't have any experience with doing this.

The first thing you will want to do is change the nameservers. To do this you will log in to the account where your domain is now hosted, find the nameserver area and then update them to WA hosting servers as shown in the training above (https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/wa-hosting-setting-up-your-domain-dns)
Primary: ns1.mywahosting.com
Secondary: ns2.mywahosting.com

Hi, you need back up your site form WordPress.com - And then install it on a site purchased, transferred or pointed.
