Domain name with dashes

  1. My current URL on wordpress.com is robteastman.wordpress.com. I bought another domain name from GoDaddy that has dashes in the name. I was hoping to be able to use it on wordpress.com, only to find out, of course that I cannot, because of the dashes. If I register another blog at WordPress.com, excluding dashes in the name, does it do me any good, and is there a good or better way for me to reference or tag the dash-equipped URL somewhere in my new blog at WordPress.com? Is there any way for me to leverage the dash-equipped domain name that I got from GoDaddy? Thanks for any suggestions that you have.

  2. I would contact support directly on this. I was thinking that you could domain map to a domain name with dashes. Include all the details.

  3. thesacredpat: - answer from Support is 'no' - no dashes allowed in the domain name.

  4. Hmmm, I knew that was the case with the blogname.wordpress.com blog URL's, but I didn't know it applied to mapped domains as well.

    Thanks for posting the answer.
