Domain name confusion

    I upgraded my account to have my url be allthingschickenwings.com through WordPress and it said that the domain was available. After contacting GoDaddy who the domain is hosted through they said that someone already owns that domain and I can not use it for my blog.

    I may be misunderstanding how this process works but I am extremely confused on what to do next. If there is anyone who can give advice or help I would appreciate it.

    Thanks

    Blog URL: allthingschickenwings.wordpress.com (but want it to be allthingschickenwings.com if possible)

    The blog I need help with is allthingschickenwings.com.

    The domain allthingschickenwings.com has already been registered by someone else. These domain are still available: allthingschickenwings.org, allthingschickenwings.me and allthingschickenwings.net .

    To register one of these, go to Store > Domains on your blog’s dashboard and follow the steps there.

    Let us know if you need any help.

    To change a blog URL ending in wordpress.com, please follow these steps. Another alternative is to purchase a custom domain name to take “wordpress” out of the domain altogether.
