    I have No idea lol ... wpwebhost.com

    Dear Steve,

    You may try create an export XML file from your existing hosting.

    Then in the temporary URL (Exabytes Server) login to the wpmu dash board and use the import process and use the xml file which is exported earlier.

    If you are trying to move a domain name, I don't know what that has to do with exporting an XML file. You need to change the nameservers where ever your DNS is managed.

    wpwebhost should have provided you with nameservers to point your domain to, ie, ns1.wpwebost.com, ns2.wpwebhost.com. Where ever you registered your domain name at, you should be able to change the nameserver.

    If you can manage to change the nameservers where ever your DNS is managed then your problem will b solved.

    You have to change this at the place where you bought your domain names. What's the domain?

    Yes, you asked for the right thing. Problem is, they may be expecting you to login to web central and change them yourself. (it's pretty easy)
