From to and studio press themes

I am SO lost!

I had a blog on and a domain from there as well.

I bought a theme from studiopress and could not use it on That is why i decided to purchase a hosting site.

How do i transfer my domain, wipe the content that is from, install and upload the theme!?

I know that is A LOT!


Do you have a lot of content on your site that you need to transfer to your new WordPRess site? or will you be starting fresh?

It sounds like you have a domain whose nameservers are pointing to

The first thing you need to do is update the nameservers to point the domain to dreamhost.

You do that by logging in whereever the domain was registered and putting

in for the nameserver entries. This tells the world that dreamhost nameservers are now the authority for your domain. When you make this change, you will not get instant joy, after the change is made that change has to “propagate” to other nameservers. This usually take 12-24 hours, but could possible take up to 72 hours.

You can then do the one click install of wordpress and set up your new blog.

There are a number of variations to the above. For example it is possible to get things set up and tweaked on the dreamhost side first, then make the DNS switch. If you have alot of established traffic it might be something you want to do, but it requires more steps. has some directions:

Really its’ as simple as buying hosting here, installing WP, importing your data, and using StudioPress’s awesome themes :slight_smile: (I’m fond of them)
