Domain Mapping Expired

    I have a domain through another site but it was mapped with WordPress. The domain mapping expired and I’d like to have the domain used on the site I bought it from. I can’t figure out how to unlock/transfer it because there is no current domain listed on my wordpress account but I also can’t use it on the other hosting site. Help?

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

    Hi @carinaplaacademy,

    If you were using a domain that was being pointed to plaacademy.wordpress.com then the domain will not show in your wordpress.com account as it is not hosted there.

    You will need to go the website that you purchased your domain from and change the DNS records to point elsewhere if you would like to use the domain for a different website.
    Alternatively, if you would like to transfer your WordPress site from wordpress.com to a different host there are plenty of guides available to you on the internet depending on how knowledgable you are.

    Hi carinaplaacademy,

    I’ve checked your account and I see plaacademy.com was mapped to plaacademy.wordpress.com but that upgrade expired earlier this year. The domain itself is registered with GoDaddy and currently pointing to site hosted on their servers.

    I can’t figure out how to unlock/transfer it because there is no current domain listed on my wordpress account

    The domain is registered through GoDaddy so you will need to login to the account you have there, in order to manage or transfer the domain.

    I’d like to have the domain used on the site I bought it from.

    Do you want to transfer plaacademy.com to WordPress.com and use it as the custom domain for plaacademy.wordpress.com? This means the domain would be renewed through us each year instead.

    Or would you like to continue using the domain for the site hosted with GoDaddy?
