Domain moved to selfhosted Blog, still connected?

  1. Hey, I've moved my domain lpfancorner.com from my online hosted blog (lpfancorner.wordpress.com) to a selfhosted blog. Everything went well, but I'm a bit confused that the domain is still shown in the domain list on lpfancorner.wordpress.com. I expected it to be removed from there completely. I'm worried that it will cause mix ups with my new blog on lpfancorner.com. Is there a way to remove it completely or is it normal that it's still in the domain list?

    The blog I need help with is lpfancorner.com.

  2. Did you move domain management from WordPress.com, or did you just change where the domain points? If you did not move the domain management, it is still a domain AT WordPress.com. It is pointing elsewhere, but you renew and manage it here.

  3. I don't really know what you mean with "domain management". I did a "domain transfer" with a transfer code.
    There is no renewing option anymore. On my old blog, the domain is in the domain list and says "never expires".

  4. Although lpfancorner.com has been registered, it is no longer using WordPress.com nameservers. At this time you can't delete self hosted sites from your account but Staff can. In the future you will be able to delete them yourself. Provided you post the URLs of self hosted blogs you want deleted from your account into a forum thread like this one, Staff can do this for you. I tagged this thread for their assistance. Please subscribe to it so you are notified when they respond.

  5. Thank you, I hope this solves this. I'm still a bit scared my new selfhosted site with this domain will be affected, but I guess that's not the case.

  6. Don't worry please as Staff will sort this with you when they can.

  7. Hi Adie,

    It looks like everything is working just fine. Your domain was successfully transferred and the domain mapping which was causing the domain lpfancorner.com to appear in your list of domains within WordPress.com isn't needed anymore, so I just removed it for you.

    Let me know if you need anything further!
