    It’s called domain mapping and it’s not a free feature; it costs about $15 a year if it’s something you want (that’s what the credits are; 1 credit = $1). If you already have a domain elsewhere then you need to get it to point to WordPress first, which could be the problem with the recognition, or that you’re trying to register a name that already exists. If you follow the FAQ it should be simple to do. If you’re still having trouble, can you give us more details of what’s happening?

    If you want to change your name to a www. something .com
    here is what you do: put your wordpress name in this:
    http://———-.wordpress.com/wp-admin/options-general.php
    Then, after that, go to domains which is located at:
    http://icexenon.wordpress.com/wp-admin/options-general.php?Page=domains
    then you must enter your domain name, or you must purchase 15 credits first before
    you can create a domain. Sorry, but it is not a free feature, i wish it was tho. :-)
    Thanks!
