transferring domain name from Simplesite to WordPress

  1. I have a domain name from another blog site but I am changing to WordPress ad would like to transfer my domain name over. Simplesite advised I needed to speak to WordPress.

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

  2. Please read this entry very carefully before proceeding > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  3. The subscription for domain mapping an existing domain is $13.00 per year for one blog.

    You need to have an underlying .wordpress.com blog URL to domain map from to the domain URL.

    You must be logged in as Admin http://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/#administrator under the exact same username account that registered the blog to access the blog and purchase upgrades for it.

    If you would like to use your domain name purchased elsewhere and map from your free hosted wordpress.com blog to it, then you will first need to set up domain mapping. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/

    After you make the domain mapping purchase here > Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades and do the primary blog set up 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.
