    Hello. I wanted toask you about the change of the name of the address of my blog. I am not quite sure if this change affects the content of the blog (i just want to change the name) and if I can make it more than once. Thank you.

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

    re: changing a site title or tagline
    The Site title (blog name) and/or the optional Tagline can be changed on the top of this page at any time. > Settings > General … “save changes”.

    That is exactly where search engine spiders look for the site title and removing it from there can cause issues with getting your content indexed. Note that the site title (blog name) and blog address URL do not have to be the same but it’s better for SEO (search engine optimization) if they are the same.

    Do you want to change your wordpress.com blog address to another one?

    re: changing a .wordpress.com address
    We cannot edit any blog URLs. If you want to change the .wordpress.com blog address ie. the URL starting with http:// then you must be logged in as Admin under the exact same username account that registered the blog to do that and the URL you desire must be available. If so, then you can change the URL by using the guide http://en.support.wordpress.com/changing-blog-address/

    Be sure to locate the correct page http://en.support.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/dashboard-e1371648470893.png

    Changing a URL is a permanent and irreversible act. No changed or deleted blog URLs are recycled here, regardless of who registered and deleted them and no exceptions are made.

    You waited for 2 whole minutes and I had already answered. Realistically speaking it can take 24 hours to get a first response to a support forum thread.

    Thank you. But this changes guarantees me that the content will remain the same? Can I change it more than once?

    1. Do you want to just change a site title?

    If so then you can do that as many times as you wish to, just like I said above and no content will be impacted.

    2. Do you want to change the .wordpress.com blog address ie. the URL starting with http://?

    3. Do you want to purchase your own domain URL and map to it from this .wordpress.com URL http://causaesma.wordpress.com/?

    re: mapping an existing domain
    WordPress.com does not accept domain transfers but mapping an existing domain is possible.

    Domain mapping of an existing domain URL that you already own and purchased elsewhere is not done free of charge. You will have to renew the domain name purchase where you made, it and the domain mapping purchase here, each and every year.

    Mapping an existing domain costs $13. annually and a domain name purchase and domain mapping are included in the Premium upgrade bundle.

    In order to map to a domain one must have an underlying .wordpress.com sub-domain blog to map from and it does not matter what that underlying .wordpress.com URL is. It does not have to match the domain URL.

    If you have registered a .wordpress.com blog you log in as Admin under the exact same username account that registered the WordPress.COM blog, and as you own a domain URL already, you can see here for mapping an existing domain. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/

    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.

    For the sake of clarity I need to know these answers:

    1. What exactly do you want to change?
    2. What do you want to change it to?
    3. Why do you want to change it?
    4. Why would you want to change it more than once?

    The repetition of the question was not intentional. I published it by mistake. Sorry.

    Okay. I’m not clear if you still need help or not. If the answer is yes then I need to know the answers to these questions:

    1. What exactly do you want to change?
    2. What do you want to change it to?
    3. Why do you want to change it?
    4. Why would you want to change it more than once?
