  1. Why I don't have Domain Administration link under Domain? how can I change my DNS name server? I want to change my name server

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

    If you do not see the blog here http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/ then

  3. I logged in as admin but with free membership... Do i need to upgrade to install theme and to change DNS server? and membership plan do I need purchase?

  4. You cannot install external themes on a WordPress.com blog at all, for security reasons. To connect a custom domain to a WordPress.com blog you need the Domain Mapping upgrade. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/

  5. I need to change the DNS server, is DNS server and Domain mapping are the same? If I upgrade it can I change my dns server? cause I need to change and instruction is to Search for 'changing name servers' or 'changing DNS servers'. which I cannot see...

  6. I need to change the DNS server, is DNS server and Domain mapping are the same?

  7. The answer is no. They are not the same.

    You need to buy the domain mapping upgrade to connect your domain name to your blog here. You can tinker with the nameservers as much as you like, but until you buy that upgrade there is no chance that your domain will lead to your blog. Here is what you need to do, step by step http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/
