en WordPress.com Forums › Support Hosting URL Question Author Posts September 16, 2008 at 12:07 am #265883 benjamingolliverMember Please pardon my newbie-ness. I registered a domain at Go Daddy. I set up hosting with Go Daddy. I created a wordpress.com account. I set up domain forwarding (by paying 10 credits) so that my domain now forwards displays my wordpress blog. All of that worked flawlessly. however, my blog url displays as: http://myname.wordpress.com rather than just http://www.myname.com. is there any way to change this? The forwarding works fine but I would like to keep the cleaner URL. Did I screw up by registering a wordpress.com account rather than a wordpress.org account? Thank you kindly in advance.
