    Hi Everyone! Need help to transfer my self hosted under the same domain name under wordpress premium domains. Is that possible? Thank you.

    The blog I need help with is www.mynappytales.com.

  2. Yes it is. In your self-hosted install, export your site, then inport it into the appropriate wordpress.com blog, then you'll need to pay for the domain mapping upgrade.

    Thank you @bobdavcav.

    When my domain lease ends with my old host can I then buy or continue using the domain under wordpress?

  4. WordPress.COM is not set up for incoming domain name transfers. You need to have your domain registered outside WordPress.COM.

    You can use your existing domain name by domain mapping it to a blog here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/

    here is how to move your blog: http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#moving-from-wordpress-org
