But after I set it up it came out to be beautyinsimplicitydotcom.wordpress.com. How am I able to fix this? Thanks, Kaylee The blog I need help with is beautyinsimplicitydotcom.wordpress.com.

It looks like you forgot step 5 here. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/register-domain/ Follow it, and your visitors will no longer see the __.wordpress.com address when they visit your blog.

Your visitors will still see your actual __.com address only… as long as you follow my suggestion. Author Posts The topic ‘Domain name issues’ is closed to new replies.
