Changing my blogue's name

  1. How can i change the name of my blogue ? I want to buy claudeboulanger.com but don't want to have a redirect on the name I took by mistake.. (claudeboulangerdotcom1.wordpress.com).
    What can I do ?
    Thanks
    CB

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

  2. There is no domain mapping upgrade for claudeboulanger.com . If you would like to use this domain you will first need to set up domain mapping.

    In order to map to a domain one must have an underlying .wordpress.com subdomain blog to map from. 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.
