Domain mapping for file url
Quick question. If I get a domain name, is there a way for the url of my files to be mapped as well, in other words, if my domain name is “happynewyear.com”, can I have:
If I can do so, then how?
No. All media files reflect the underlying URL of the blog you are mapping from to the domain URL. This cannot be changed.
Note that when clicked all the other .wordpress.com URLs except the media file URLs will redirect seamlessly to the domain URLs when you domain map.
In order to map to a domain one must have an underlying .wordpress.com subdomain blog to map from and the domain name your desire must be available for purchase.
If you have registered a .wordpress.com blog you log in as Admin under the exact same username account that registered the blog and purchase a domain name by purchasing an annually renewable domain mapping upgrade for the blog.

Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades is where you do the primary blog set up knowing it can take between 24 – 72 hours for domain name propagation to take place throughout the internet. You can view the DNS changes here > http://www.whatsmydns.net/ What’s important during that stage is to be patient.
