  1. How do I speak to someone at WordPress for help? I need some help with the blog. I don't want a blog. I just want to register and pay for a domain.
    Blog url:

  2. The only way one can purchase a domain through is to purchase a domain mapping upgrade. That means you do have to register a blog. There is no way around this.

    If you’ve registered your domain through and now later want it to point to a blog or website hosted elsewhere then you can do this by updating the nameservers.

  3. Hi timethief

    Thanks for your response! I think I am misunderstanding the word 'blog'. My knowledge is that it is almost like a diary in which I can write and other people can read it. For example if I want to give fashion advice to my readers.

    I don't want to do that. I just want to purchase a .com domain and design a website with the available themes for my business.

    Apologies if I am repeating or misunderstanding your response. This is all new to me.

  4. See > Using to Create a Website

    A WordPress blog can either be structured as a page based website or its conventional post based structure can be retained. That’s why understanding the differences between posts and pages, comprehending the SEO implications of creating a page based structure, and knowing how to use custom menus
    are key to decision making when selecting a theme, and setting up your blog.

    On one hand, none of the characteristic "blog" features likes categories, tags, authors, dates, etc. can be removed from a free hosted blog without purchasing an annually renewable custom design upgrade and doing the required CSS editing.

    On the other hand, one can hack a theme free of charge. Have you read this comparison? and The Differences

  5. Thanks again :)

    I think I understand it all a little bit better.

  6. You're welcome.
