Domain Help!

    I have a domain registered with gandi.net which I would like to use for my blog. I am aware that I can, through wordpress.com, map this domain to my blog for a fee. If I where to go ahead and do this would it mean that I would have to pay my existing domain registrar (gandi) to host the domain name and also pay wordpress.com the fee for the domain mapping? If so is there a way to have wordpress.com manage my domain name so that I am only paying one fee for the domain through wordpress.com?

    Many Thanks!

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

    WordPress do not accept domain transfers in, so I am afraid you are stuck with two payments.

    So I would either have to wait until my current domain expires then create a new domain with wordpress? and in the meantime would you suggest mapping anyway?

    It can take over 60 days from the time a domain registration expires and it is released back to the wild – your domain name will probably not work during that time and you run the risk of someone else registering your old domain name and holding it ransom –

    You are stuck with two different companies – even if you transferred the domain name here (which you can’t) – you would have two separate payments – (domain registration & domain mapping are different upgrades and are not combined into a single payment here)
