So, rather than being bushfireprep.wordpress.com I want it to be mtdandenong.bushfireprep.com Is this possible without losing all the data and settings on my existing blog? The blog I need help with is bushfireprep.wordpress.com.

The content stays exactly where it is. Nothing changes except the original URLs when clicked seamlessly redirect to the new domain URLs. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/ http://support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/register-domain/ http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/#important-notes-before-upgrading Author Posts The topic ‘changing blog address’ is closed to new replies.
