Getting a domain

  1. Hello,
    I want to change my domain from the free .wordpress.com to a .com domain If i do it through WordPress and pay the 18$/year would I have to start a new site or would It just change the domain?

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

  2. All that changes is the URL. Nothing else changes.

    In order to map to a domain one must have an underlying .wordpress.com subdomain blog to map from. If you have registered a .wordpress.com blog you log in 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. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/

    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. what payment method is used to register a domain can i use alertpay mean Payza in pakistan? &
    can it possible to register my site in another website/register & map it here wordpress.com
