Domain Mapping / Masked Website Forwarding

    Hi there!

    I’m pretty new to this and I am a little confused as to how to get my .wordpress site to become hidden by my .com domain name. I purchased jordanjonespottery.com and made it point to my wordpress, but when you type jordanjonespottery.com you get directed to the wordpress, but the .wordpress is in the url.
    The registrar I go through offers an option to do “masked website forwarding” so the url visitors see is the .com domain I purchased, but it is $49… through some research it looks like what I’m really looking for is the domain mapping provided by wordpress for $13?
    If I only have “basic website forwarding” provided by my registrar (Register.com) will the domain mapping by wordpress solve my problem of wanting my url to remain jordanjonespottery.com when viewing my wordpress site?
    Just wanted to get some input to make sure I do the right thing :) Thank you so much!

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

    Hi Jordan!

    You’re correct, the annual $13 domain mapping upgrade will give you exactly what you’re looking for. The domain jordanjonespottery.wordpress.com will still work, but all of your traffic will be redirected to jordanjonespottery.com.

    As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
