domain names

  1. Is it possible to use your own domain name on wordpress?

    Would i be able to purchase one from this site to use here - http://blogrolling.domaindirect.com/

  2. No, all domain names here must end with .wordpress.com.

  3. you can redirect it if you have your own Host, you log in on your Host cPanel, choose the option Setup Redirection and give your wordpress.com URL as the URL redirection, choose whether you want a permanent redirection or temporarily and then your desired URL will redirect you to your wordpress.com account :)

  4. I just tried to manage, anonymuis.com/log which redirects to my wordpress.com account while it's not permanent one, you'll however get your wordpress.com's url back anyway

  5. Domain Redirections can be used I spose. Like .tk or .co.nr or .uni.cc or even a .com or .be or anything like that I suppose... But nah, it's not worth it.

  6. Add this in your htaccess:

    RewriteEngine on

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^yourdomain.com$ [OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.yourdomain.com$
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://yoururl.wordpress.com [R=301,L]

    but however, wordpress.com url is more better for me ^_^

  7. You might be able to also do the redirect at your domain registar as well. It depends on who you use.

  8. the anonymuis.com/log is going to be removed as i was only testing it

    good luck with redirection ^_^

  9. Domain parking and registration is going to be one of the first paid upgrades we offer.

  10. wow its going to be more interesting ^_^

  11. Hey Matt,

    Do you have an idea when these upgrades will be available? Domain Hosting woulg be most excellent, although I may go with a regular webhost like LaughingSquid, since they offer this feature now.

  12. Log, how the heck can we add that in our .htacess.. Only Matt and the other admins have access to it..

    @Matt: Is this gonna be a paid feature.... O_O.. Any idea as to how much it will cost??

  13. Here is some more info on Domain Hosting at WordPress.com. The info is a little sparse:

    http://faq.wordpress.com/2005/10/23/domain-mapping/

    In other news, WordPress has a FAQ... that really needs to be linked from the front page. I only found out about the FAQ from a Google Search.

  14. that really needs to be linked from the front page.

    Hell YES! :)

  15. that really needs to be linked from the front page.

    Hell YES! :)

    That was sent into the "feedback blackhole" nearly a month ago! *rolls eyes*

  16. Log, how the heck can we add that in our .htacess.. Only Matt and the other admins have access to it..

    As For Chronotron, when someone is talking about sub domain url Redirection from his or her own host it means she or he has Access to his or her own host so she or he will be able to put the codes in her or his .htaccess file, I was Not writing about how to put them in wordpress.com account if you really read it :P
