I own my domain and want to map it here to create my site, but will it show as the domain name.com or the domain.com.wordpress.com? I want it to just show as the domain.com.
The blog I need help with is theitcurl.wordpress.com.
See this Support page:
Thank you for that link, I read all that. I must admit I’m not tech savy and it doesn’t answer my question in terms of me understanding. What I’m needing to know is if I map over my domain that I own will it publish as theitcurl.wordpress.com or theitcurl.com?
I have an existing e-mail address which i wanted to use for my blog but it ends in .co.uk. Is it possible to use this or will i need to change it to .com?
as theitcurl.wordpress.com or theitcurl.com?
Your visitor will see theitcurl.com – same for links to your site
ends in .co.uk.
You can map that domain to a blog here at WordPress.COM
You will need to have your email hosted not at WordPress.COM if you want to use that domain for email – Google and others can host the email for you – not sure of the cost – your domain registrar can probably also host the email – it does take some special configuration to make the email work
thank you auxclass,
I did the mapping yesterday, but when i went to add a wordpress theme to the mapped site there was no dashboard and when i would select the mapped site it would pull up the other site i created. I really don’t think the mapping is what I’m looking for. I purchased a domain name with Weebly but the site is limited in themes and I want to bring over that domain to WordPress and no longer have the Weebly site. I thought that a purchased domain name came be taken to any web host???? I guess my mistake was to purchase on Weebly and not GoDaddy!
No Domain Mapping Found
There is no domain mapping upgrade for theitcurl.com. If you would like to use this domain you will first need to set up domain mapping.
Did you follow these instructions?
What do you see at Dashboard >> Store >> My Upgrades?
Were you charged for domain mapping?
I will flag this for the staff to review your account in case you were charged but did not receive an upgrade
You can definitely use your weebly domain with your WordPress.com site. Setting this up takes two steps:
1. You must point the name servers for your domain to WordPress.com
2. You must purchase the domain mapping upgrade
It can take up to 72 hours for the domain mapping to show after you have completed these two steps.
I see you recently returned the Domain Mapping Upgrade. Did you still want to use this domain with your WordPress.com site?
