I recently purchased a domain with the intention of using it with my free wordpress blog, and bought domain mapping so people visiting the domain would be forwarded on to the blog. I wanted it to remain as the domain name rather than the blog URL though and it isn’t doing this (will this kick in within a few days or is it not a feature of domain mapping?).
But I was thinking about it – and I don’t see why I should use the domain mapping service when I could, for free, forward the domain on to my wordpress blog for free and ‘mask’ it so it remains as the domain name rather than the blog URL.
So why should I pay for domain mapping when I could just log on to GoDaddy (where I bought my domain) and get them to forward visits to the domain and ‘mask’ it so it remains displaying the domain name rather than my blog.wordpress.com URL? Is there something about domain mapping that I'm missing?
The blog I need help with is zombiesatemyxbox.wordpress.com.
