I really learned a lot during your WordPress workshop on creativeLIVE and now I’m attempting to put all the pieces together & would appreciate any guidance on how to transfer my domain name.
I have a Smugmug Photo website that I am going to stop using & cancel so I can make my own website using WordPress (you made it so easy on creativeLIVE!).
I got my domain name from Smugmug. I could use guidance about HOW I transfer/redirect/point(?) my domain to my new WordPress site.
SmugMug domain said I can cancel my Smugmug website services and maintain the registration at Smugmug, and redirect/point my domain name to WordPress. (Otherwise I have to first unlock the private registration via domainsbyproxy.com, initiate a transfer via WordPress, get an authorization code from SmugMug domain, request a transfer.)
Is there a benefit to leaving my domain there vs transfer to WordPress?
*I have researched WordPress and see ‘NameServers’ to redirect a domain name hosted elsewhere but I don’t know if I’m using the correct terms/language.
Is there any way you could point me in the right direction, please? I would appreciate it very much.
