I have been using a weebly.com site/domain name for about a year and want to start using WordPress instead. I have copied and pasted all of my content onto a WordPress site and it’s all ready to go, but I need to transfer my domain and want to make sure I’m doing everything correctly.
I pointed my DNS servers at Weebly to DreamHost, unlocked the registrar, and then went to the DreamHost site and entered my domain name, access code from Weebly, and pointed the DNS servers to Wordpress (I do not want to host my site on DreamHost. The switch over to Wordpress is confusing me enough!).
It says it’ll take about 7-10 days to transfer over…is it really going to be that long? The Weebly site was registered by my husband and the DreamHost account is in my name, do you guys think this will cause any holdups as long as I have the access code correct from Weebly?
Am I correct in pointing the Weebly DNS to DreamHost and the DreamHost DNS to Wordpress or is this not going to work?
Thank you all in advance for helping out someone so clueless!
