Do I have to buy a hosting package in order to map my domain with WordPress for $13 a year? Blog url: http://lipstickandlove.wordpress.com/ The blog I need help with is lipstickandlove.wordpress.com.

You need to purchase a domain mapping upgarde and then map to your existing domain form your wordpress.com blog. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/ http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/.

You will have to renew your domain name annually with the registar your purchased it from and also renew the domain mapping upgrade annually with wordpress.com and that’s it.
