changing my blog/domain name

  1. Hi,
    I would like to change the name of my blog. I entered the new name and clicked on the "Update Primary Domain" but nothing happens. Is there something else that I need to do?
    Thank you,
    Alex

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

  2. Yes. You need to purchase the domain name and domain mapping upgrade; you can do this in one step by following the instructions here:

  3. I dont't understand...I did not pay anything when I put the first name. Why do I have to buy one now?
    Are we talking about the same thing? When I clicked on the "Update Primary Domain" I did get a message saying that it had been upgraded. I did receive an email with my new name...it just does not come up when I google it.
    Does it take time for it to show up when someone googles it? I know my first name did not show up for awhile. It does show up now. Do I have to wait again for the new name to show up?
    Thanks,
    Alex

  4. Do you want to change your blog from blognameA.wordpress.com to blognameB.wordpress.com? That is not possible with the click of a button. You cannot simply change blognames like that. You have to register a new blog B and then export everything from blog A and import into it blog B.

  5. Well, I can't give advice specific to YOUR blog since you haven't told me where it is. But you can't add a domain name to a blog at WordPress.COM without purchasing the domain name upgrade.
