I’ve searched the questions forum and did not find the direct answer to my question. TIA! I recently purchased a .com here. I’ve been told by someone that because I actually purchased through wordpress vs. godaddy that I probably do not actually ‘own’ the domain? Is this correct? If so, how do I make it so that I will always own the domain?
To “always own the domain” you need to remember to renew it every year or what ever the time period of your registrar is. It does not matter if you have registered the domain though Godaddy or WordPress.COM (Wild West) you have the same ownership rights etc.
In a way nobody “owns” a domain it is just registered and then you sort of rent it, forget to pay the rent and it goes away and someone else can register it and use it.
