How do I change the current domain name

    I need to know how to change the existing domain name by swapping the current domain name with the new domain name that I am using.

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

  2. In order to try and help, what is the "current domain name" and what is the one you are using?

    The "current domain name" is http://www.theblackcommunitysite.com and it is being used right now but it is not working so I was thinking that I would switch to the other domain which is http://www.therealblackcommunity.com.

  4. The blog is working! What you see is an 404 error message. By default your front page displays all your posts and you have not published any posts. The 404 (page not found) error message on the front page of your blog appeared because you deleted the placeholder Hello World post. http://en.support.wordpress.com/not-found/ As soon as you publish a post, not a page it will disappear. http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/

  5. P.S. Just a word to the wise. Know that changing URLs and/or deleting blogs does not address issues like the one above. Blog deletion is not reversible so if you have issues then post here - do not delete blogs or chnage URLs in an effort to address any issue.

    Thanks timethief, I will publish some posts so they will show up. Thanks to you too justjennifer.

  7. You're welcome.

    But I don't wonder if you haven't somehow set a static page for your front page rather than your site showing the latest posts on the front page. See here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/
