I need help linking my existing domain to be hosted by WordPress!

  1. I've just set up a free blog with WordPress called melancholicblog.wordpress.com, but I also own a domain called confessionsofamelancholic.com that I bought with GoDaddy.

    I tried to follow the instructions for linking my domain to WordPress but I didn't really understand what to do when I got to the stage where you enter the nameservers - you need at least two apparently, and I didn't know what to put.

    Could someone please tell me clearly step-by-step how I link confessionsofamelancholic.com with my existing free domain at WordPress (but of course keeping my original domain) - I haven't done anything with the domain name yet, so there is no content or anything on it.

    Also, how much does WordPress charge if I were to use them as my host?

    Many thanks in advance! :)

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

  2. WordPress.com does not currently accept incoming domain transfers. If you already have a domain and you want to use it with your WordPress.com site, follow the instructions for mapping an existing domain to your WordPress.com blog.
