Transfering my website to this web host

  1. I am thinking of transferring my website to this web host and keep the same domain name.
    Please let me know how.

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

  2. If you already own a domain then you purchase a domain mapping upgrade to use it in conjunction with your .wordpress.com blog. If you don't own one you can purchase one through WordPress.com.

    Important Notes Before Upgrading http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/#important-notes-before-upgrading

    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 as Admin 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.

    See here for purchasing yopur own custom domain http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/

    See here for mapping an existing domain that you already own http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/

    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.
