adding blog to domain i already have

  1. Hi! I have a domain name already purchased but would like to put a wordpress blog on it. Is this possible? If so how would I do that?

  2. Hi there,
    Yes, this is possible.

    If you would like to use your domain you will first need to purchase a domain mapping upgrade http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/ set up domain mapping. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/

    After you make the domain mapping purchase here > Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades and do the primary blog set up it can take between 24 - 72 hours for domain name propagation to take place throughout the internet. You can view the DNS changes here > http://www.whatsmydns.net/ What's important during that stage is to be patient.

  3. If however what you are asking is: Can I get help here to embed a free hosted WordPress.com blog into my website, then my answer is no we do not help with that.

  4. Ok this is exactly what I was looking for!
    Thanks!!

  5. Hooray! I'm glad I was able to help. Best wishes to you.

  6. ok I did the domain mapping but I'm really confused.... the blog doesn't show up on my domain

  7. Although namihighcountry.org has been registered, it is not using WordPress.com nameservers. If you would like to use your domain you will first need to set up domain mapping as described here. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/

    After you make the domain mapping purchase here > Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades and do the primary blog set up it can take between 24 - 72 hours for domain name propagation to take place throughout the internet.
