    I delete myblog.wordpress.com (yes after all of the warnings). Can i upgrade my account and then use mydomain.com? (same domain name, but without the .wordpress). And yes, I own the domain.

    Thanks for your help,
    Darryl

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

    You must first register a .wordpress.com blog URL in order to be able to map from it to your domain URL. Are you clear on that?

    If you would like to use your domain name and map to from your free hosted wordpress.com blog to it then you will first need to set up domain mapping. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/

    After you make the domain mapping purchase here > Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades and do the primary blog set up 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.

    I deleted my .wordpress.com blog, but do own the domain at dotster. I am no techy, but if I understand right, I can upgrade my account and map my domain to it (from dotster). Then, between 24-72 hours, I canstart using wordpress as my host with my url being http://www.mydomain.com

    Please let me know if I got it before I start upgrading my account. Thanks so much!

    See the instructions above for mapping an existing domain name to do what you want. $ 13.– / year

    I don’t see the mapping instructions. and if i want a .com (not a .wordpress.com) i thought it started at $99.00/yr?

    thanks again,
    Darryl
