Ownership of Domain Name

  1. Hi!

    I am considering (for want of the technical term) taking the .wordpress.com out of my domain name. I have a few questions:

    Do I have full legal ownership and DNS control over the new domain name? Is it mine 100%?

    Why is it only 18 usd a year? Other domain hosting sites cost around 70 a year. I know you get what you pay for- what am I not paying for and thus not getting?

    Thank you :)

  2. Understand that all hosting here is free of charge. The domain you purchase is your for as long and you keep paying annually to renew it.
