    Hi! I am looking for the best webhost and have found several sites that I like that have used wordpress. I already purchased my domain name on godaddy.com but found wordpress to be more aesthetically pleasing for my own eyes and would love to use my domain name here. Is this possible?
    Thanks!

    Hi graceandessentialoils

    Yes, this is easily possible you can use your existing domain with WordPress in two ways:

    1. Domain Transfer
    If you want to move your domain completely with us then you can transfer that domain to WordPress.com. Here is the support document for this:

    2. Mapping existing domain

    If you just want to attach that domain to your site and don’t want to change the registrar then domain mapping is the best option. Here is the support document below:

    Hope this helps.
