    thank you thank you! will take a look

    just to clarify – do i have to open a wordpress blog first then upgrade it? it seems like the only option there at the moment is to give a gift…

    Yes, you have to have a blog to assign a domain name to it. :)

    I’m not sure what you are asking but Andy explains the domain feature in this thread https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic.php?id=4766&page&replies=76

    IF you go to your admin => upgrades => domain and then add a domain name, it will tell you if it is available and let you know how to register it as well. As well, check out this FAQ:
