cautiousmom.com? How can I make that happen?

  1. Since I started my blog last spring, I always saw a thing at the top of the page that said I could own the name of my blog for $18. I finally had an extra $20 and I'm ready to do that, but now I can't find it!! Did I lose my shot at making "The Cautious Mom" my own? What can I do? Please help! Thanks! Janelle Vendeville

    The blog I need help with is thecautiousmom.wordpress.com.

  2. Unless you alreay purchased it then cautiousmom.com is not available as it's been purchased already.

  3. In order to map to a domain one must have an underlying .wordpress.com subdomain blog to map from and the domain name your desire must be available for purchase.

    If you have registered a .wordpress.com blog you log in as Admin under the exact same username account that registered the blog and purchase a domain name by purchasing an annually renewable domain mapping upgrade for the blog.

    See here if you do not own a domain http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/

    See here for mapping an existing domain that you already own http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/

    See here for mapping a sub-domain (for a domain with an existing website) to your WordPress.com blog http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-subdomain/

    Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades is where you do the primary blog set up knowing 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.
