Hi, newbie question on installing wordpress


Hi guys, I am new here so bear with me :slight_smile:

I had registered a domain on wordpress.com but I had them refund the money as I want to register on dreamhost so avoid changing name servers and stuff. I am not very technically proficient.

I have registered it here but it seems like my wordpress.com blog is still working on the same domain. Do you think it just needs some time before I can finish wordpress.org installation and move it here? When I try to finish installation, I get the error message saying it looks like my blog is still there.

Please help, just freaking a bit


If you perhaps give us the domain name we can help you sort this out. There is not enough information above to help sort it out.

You are correct that DNS can take time to take effect.
