You can register a custom domain name for your site here: https://johnsoutofoffice.wordpress.com/wp-admin/paid-upgrades.php?page=domains You can read more about custom domain names here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/ April 14, 2014 at 7:02 am #1737821 johnm2424Member I found how to do it now but do I have to pay another $18? Why can I not just unregister one and switch it to the new name? April 14, 2014 at 7:08 am #1737822 kardotimMember The domain gothangrind.com is registered under the ‘gothamgrind’ user account. The domain can’t be switched since it’s already been registered since 2013-04-04, and won’t expire until 2015-04-04. However, you can have as many additional domain names linked to one blog.
