Domanin Mapping Costs

  1. I have a hosted domain elsewhere. What is the cost if I map it directly to WordPress vs the cost if I map it to a sub domain? I believe your site indicates either way would cost $13.00 per year, but that is not clear.

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

  2. Mapping a domain you already own costs $13.00 per domain, per year.
    Map a subdomain (for a domain with an existing website) to your WordPress.com blog if you already have a website, and you want to add a blog to it under a subdomain (such as blog.yourgroovydomain.com, for example).

  3. RATS! The last link I posted above is wrong. I meant to post this one http://support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-subdomain/

  4. Thanks, but sorry. I am just not quite getting it. That's exactly what is on the site, and that's what I was not understanding. It's as if, some key words in the explanation are left out. Mapping a domain I own (Yes - thru GoDaddy) costs $13.00.... I am not seeing the meaning of a domain vs a subdomain.

  5. Map a domain = = tompotterphotography.com

    Map a SUB domain = = blog.tompotterphotography.com

    Each are $ 13.-- / year

    Map a domain - you are moving your entire web site to WordPress.COM

    Map a SUB domain - you keep your existing web site and add your WordPress.COM site to your existing web site as a "blog" or what ever you want to call it

  6. OK, now, THAT, is painfully clear, even to a SIMPLE man like myself. :O) All kidding aside, if your instrux throughout your site were written as simply as that, the non-developer crowd would grasp this stuff a lot easier. We're photographers, restaurant, pet store, bicycle shop, travel agency, etc, etc, etc, owners, us bloggers....were not programmers :O)
    Thank you VERY much to the both of you for taking the time to get this info across to me. I really appreciate it - you helped me move on to my next step

    :O)
    Sincerely,
