Hello, I have two questions. This is the first topic. I see lots of related questions, and some answers here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/. Maybe it's the late hour, but I don't feel clear on the answer. I have a registered domain name that isn't hosted anywhere and that I have never used, but I own it. I want to use it, http://www.claudiaputnam.com, instead of http://claudiaputnam.wordpress.com. The link I just supplied suggests that this is possible, but I get turned around in all the discussion of which site is pointing to which. So can someone please clarify...I think I need to set things up with my registrar so that they do the approrpriate pointing, I pay wordpress the 9.97 or what have you, and then I can have my clean URL. Is that correct? Or am I just getting a redirect from my clean URL to the mucky wordpress URL? The link above sounds pretty clear that it works the first way (clean URL is what I end up with, clear brand), but when you start following the directions it then starts to sound the other way.
The blog I need help with is claudiaputnam.wordpress.com.
