Change my domain name from victimsofmedicalerrors.com (delete wordpress)

  1. I want to buy the domain victimsofmedicalerrors.com and when I entered this at the wordpress site I instead ended up with victimsofmedicalerrors.wordpress.com How do I change this and purchase this domain.
    Thank you,

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

  2. Hi fsouthwick, I am having the same problem with my blog. I'm commenting in the hope that someone out there actually has an answer. Good luck.

  3. Here is how to register a domain name through WordPress.com:

    Just to be clear, you will still be hosted on WordPress.COM. All the same restrictions apply; the only thing different is the name.

    If what you want is to host your own site, then you will have to pay someone (Network Solutions, GoDaddy, or other). Here is an article about the different versions of WordPress:

  4. I figured it out. Simply go to the store and purchase the domain name you want. Then pick this domain name as your primary website.
    It is actually quite easy.

  5. Hello, my situation is slightly different. I already have my domain, fromthestoop.com, registered with GoDaddy, and I have modified the name servers at GoDaddy to point to WordPress.com. This all works great. Users type fromthestoop.com and are redirected to my WordPress.com blog. The problem is that my WordPress.com address (wwwfromthestoop.com) is actually what is being displayed by the browser. This also effects all my blog's pages being displayed. For example, I want the address fromthestoop.com/category/buy it displayed, but the address being displayed is http://wwwfromthestoop.wordpress.com/category/buy-it/ .

    Is there anyway, at WordPress.com for everything to work off of fromthestoop.com?
