Domain Mapping: almost impossible to understand how it works!

    Dear helper:
    1) I already own a domain <lasamc.com> and want to build a website with “WordPress.com Personal – annual subscription” (which includes Domain Mapping) BUT, on a different page, your site says that Domain Mapping is included in the “Premium subscription”: there is a mismatch here??

    2) obviously I want to build my site with url http://www.lasamc.com and NOT lasamc.wordpress.com or anything like this… is it possible?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Kind Regards

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

    Hi there,

    Domain mapping is included in all our plans, Personal, Premium and Business. If you want to use the Personal Plan, first go to My Site ->Plans and add the plan there. Then go to My Site ->Domains to connect your domain.

    2) obviously I want to build my site with url http://www.lasamc.com and NOT lasamc.wordpress.com or anything like this… is it possible?

    That is exactly what domain mapping does. All WordPress.com sites have a free address, and you cannot get rid of that free address, but if you map a domain here, that custom address is laid over the free address so the free address is not visible to anyone viewing your site, like putting a fancy dust-jacket over the regular cover for a book.

    Please let me know if you have any more questions about this.

    Hi ,
    thanks a lot, I’ll go ahead then.
    I am assuming that – at any point in time – I can switch to Premium plan?

    Correct. If you switch to Premium later, depending on how close you are to the Personal Plan’s expiration date you should only pay the difference in cost between the two plans.
