From "myname.wordpress.com" to "myname.com" for €15.00 per year

  1. Hello! I have a question... if i use this service and change my domain name from "myname.wordpress.com" to "myname.com" will people find me if they type in their browser "myname.wordpress.com". Are they going to be directed automatically to my new adreess? And if I change my domain name, will I be able to add some more new widgets that I would like to use?

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

  2. The reason one purchases a domain name and domain mapping upgrade is because when any links to the original content are clicked anywhere on the internet they seamlessly direct visitors to the same content under the new URLs.

    And if I change my domain name, will I be able to add some more new widgets that I would like to use?

    No. All that changes is the URLs.

    You must be logged in as Admin http://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/#administrator under the exact same username account that registered the blog to access the blog's dashboard at > Store > My Upgrades.

    In order to map to a domain one must have an underlying .wordpress.com subdomain blog to map from and the domain name you desire must be available for purchase, or you must already own the domain URL.

    As you have registered a .wordpress.com blog you log in as Admin under the exact same username account that registered the blog and purchase a domain name by purchasing an annually renewable domain mapping upgrade for the blog.

    See here if you already own a domain http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/

    Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades is where you do the primary blog set up knowing it can take between 24 - 72 hours for domain name propagation to take place throughout the internet. You can view the DNS changes here > http://www.whatsmydns.net/ What's important during that stage is to be patient.

  3. Thanks a lot! You answered my question!

  4. You're welcome and best wishes.

    I've a related question more or less. We have bought the mapping for Haagspraak, but are getting strange reactions especially noticed when we use Google's chrome browser: If we try to post / edit and then want to see what we have written in a preview. We are logged out. A similar problem arises if we want to like a post in Chrome

    Heard of? Any pointer to a solution or should I give notice of a bug?

    Are you sure you are logged in correctly under the exact same username account that registered the blog and purchased the upgrade? Are also sure you do have third party cookies enabled on Chrome? http://en.support.wordpress.com/third-party-cookies/
