I’ve been reading threads and Googling for a day and a half, and haven’t found anything that explains the issue I’m currently having.
I built a WordPress theme and site locally, pushed it to a dreamhosters domain for testing/approval (www.hurricane-power.dreamhosters.com), now I want to move it to our actual domain (www.hurricane-power.com).
I found several places that said to just use an FTP client, and rename the folders. So that’s what I did.
But hurricane-power.com just redirected to hurricane-power.dreamhosters.com. So I deleted the dreamhosters domain…so now it redirects, and says “Site Not Found.”
So I deleted hurricane-power.com, and re-set it up (just in case something hinky was going on!), still no luck.
I went back into GoDaddy, and checked all the DNS records, they’re all correct…and I put them all in yesterday morning, so I can’t imagine it’s taking this long to propagate.
I’m really just not understanding how/why my domain name is redirecting to the dreamhosters domain, when I deleted the dreamhosters domain AND database.
EDIT: I’m a designer, and haven’t ever actually done this before, so feel free to explain in the most simplistic terms!
