Starting a WordPress Blog with my registered Domain

  1. I registered my domain name with GoDaddy and have it protected for awhile. I'd like to start up the website and am interested in a wordpress blog format. What are my next steps and what do you suggest? If I purchase the WordPress bundle does that include the hosting and would my domain then be live?

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

  2. You can map your domain to a free wordpress.COM site
    or
    You can find and pay a host (GoDaddy is a host for example) and download the free blogging software from wordpress.ORG

  3. Information about mapping an exiting domain to a free wp.COM:

  4. Note that the $99 value bundle is for use on wp.COM only, not for wp.ORG
    It does not include hosting which you'd use with .ORG.

    If you need all of these:

    Domain Name & Mapping
    Space Upgrade
    No Ads
    Custom Design
    VideoPress

    then it is a good deal .
