Domain confusion

  1. I tried to purchase a domain and set up a blog today for "hillaryfiles.com". My first attempt created a free "hillaryfilesdotcom.wordpress.com" account. So I tried again and paid $99 for hillaryfiles.com. However, I can't delete the other free domains and the one I paid for is not showing up in my Blogs list. Help?

    The blog I need help with is moralnorth.com.

However, I can't delete the other free domains and the one I paid for is not showing up in my Blogs list nor can I find it with my internet browser. Help?

  3. UPDATE: I guess it just took some time, but the domain I paid for is now active and accessible. I just need to delete a free domain. I'll search support files for that, unless someone wants to save me some time and send a link.

  4. Hi there,

    Please note that the free domain: hillaryfilesdotcom.wordpress.com never deletes, which is actually a good thing so if you one day decide not to renew the domain or it expires accidentally all your content will still be available at hillaryfilesdotcom.wordpress.com.

    However, as long as you keep your domain renewed, your readers will see your site at hillaryfiles.com. Even if they go to hillaryfilesdotcom.wordpress.com they will be automatically redirected to hillaryfiles.com.

    Feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
