Registering Domain Name

  1. I want to register my wordress name but am on the fence if I should do it here or with another company. What do you all suggest? (Please be honest)

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

  2. Hi there,
    We aren't allowed to create discussion threads on these technical support forums. And we Volunteers are here to answer support questions we aren't here to sell upgrades. That being said, without any doubt the $18. annual domain mapping upgrade which includes a domain name for only $5. is very hard to beat. If you are into blogging over the long term - go for it.

    In order to map to a domain one must have an underlying .wordpress.com subdomain blog to map from. If you have registered a .wordpress.com blog you log in under the exact same username account that registered the blog and purchase a domain name by purchasing an annually renewable domain mapping upgrade for the blog. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/

    Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades is where you do the primary blog set up knowing it can take between 24 - 72 hours for domain name propagation to take place throughout the internet. You can view the DNS changes here > http://www.whatsmydns.net/ What's important during that stage is to be patient.
