    Hello,
    I did a mistake in choosing my domain name: I wanted to call it :
    http://www.espaceyoga.lu.wordpress.com
    instead I got:
    https://espaceyogadotludotcom.wordpress.com/
    How can I change that?
    thx

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

    Hi there – it isn’t possible to have the address in the format http://www.espaceyoga.lu.wordpress.com. WordPress domains are in the format xxxx.wordpress.com.

    Otherwise, you can register a custom domain – one that’s available – and map it to your site.

    It looks like you did map espaceyoga.lu to your site. Is that a domain that you purchased somewhere else? Keep in mind that you can only map a domain that you own.

    If you haven’t registered the domain espaceyoga.lu anywhere, you can either go ahead and register it, or let me know if you’d like me to remove the upgrade from your account. If you did register it somewhere, you’ll need to update the name servers to point to:

    ns1.wordpress.com
    ns2.wordpress.com
    ns3.wordpress.com

    Please let me know if I can be of further help with this.

    Blog names can only include letter and numbers, hence the . being translated as dot.

    You can change your blog’s address following this guide, but it has to be only letters and numbers: http://en.support.wordpress.com/changing-blog-address/
