purchasing domain names

  1. i would like to know if i am paying for a year, can i use it for business purpose, is it possible to take money through master and visa card? And can you take it back and sell it to others?

    In fact I want to have a permanent domain name for my small business, but if after a year you charge me too much and I am not in a position to pay you then what happens? Can i buy it at least for 2-3 years? I am in India is it valid for me?

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

  2. I believe you are best served by hiring a web host and setting up your own WordPress.ORG install. Read this comparison so you understand why that is > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  3. if i am paying for a year, can i use it for business purpose is it possible to take money through master and visa card?

    E-commerce transactions via shopping carts and the like cannot be conducted on free blogs from and being free hosted by WordPress.com. On free hosted WordPress.com blog we can use a contact form and/or a PayPal donation button for sale of only products created and/or services provided by ourselves.

    There is no upgrade you can purchase from WordPress.com that changes any of that. If you do require an eCommerce site, advertising, affiliate links, paid or sponsored content you can hire a web host and get a free software install from http://wordpress.org

  4. I am not in a position to pay you then what happens?

    The domain links are all broken and the blog reverts back to the .wordpress.com URLs.

    Can i buy it at least for 2-3 years?

    No. Only one year purchases are available at this time.
