This is a one-time, easy step to complete!
IMPORTANT: If you’re moving your blog from another WordPress site that’s not already on PSMU, then you’ll need to export your old content before you can proceed with the steps below.
Go to dashboard – tools – export content and export everything including your media files, then send that xml file to us to import for you on a PSMU theme of your choice. We’ll let you know when to proceed with switching your A records after all your content has been moved over successfully.
If you’re a brand new blogger with no previous content to import, then disregard the above and proceed with the steps below.
HOW TO POINT YOUR NAME SERVERS OVER TO PSMU
Please watch the short video below to point your domain’s name servers over to us. This allows us to host your blog on our servers. FYI, this is a step that you will accomplish just once, and can be reversed at any time.
If you didn’t use GoDaddy to register your domain, then please share the name server information directly above with your domain registrar and have them update those settings.
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT EMAIL:
This step only applies to you if you have or would like to have your email on your domain (example: firstname.lastname@example.org). If not, then you ARE DONE!
If you do CURRENTLY have email setup for your domain, we just need to make some minor setting updates (to what is called your MX Records) that will allow your email to work perfectly normally. Please CLICK HERE to provide us temporary log in information to your domain registrar (like a GoDaddy, BlueHost, etc.) so that we can make these changes on your behalf.
Again, if you plan to use an email address not related to your domain, like gmail, then there is nothing additional you need to do.
