The blog I need help with is flavourik.wordpress.com. February 7, 2013 at 2:44 am #1147692 raincoasterMember WordPress.com is a blog host. They are hosting your blog http://flavourik.wordpress.com/ February 7, 2013 at 2:47 am #1147694 flavourikMember I’m planning to get myname.com. Would it matter I go through Ipage or is it better to go get to them directly? February 7, 2013 at 2:47 am #1147696 flavourikMember Thanks Raincoaster.

Again I’m a novice. How do I do the mapping? What is mapping? Sorry guys. Be patient with me.
