How to change my paid domain name?

  1. I purchased for my wordpress blog domain. I want to change to a new domain.

    How do I change my domain name to another domain that I want, which is available? Is there a fee? Thank you.


    The blog I need help with is

  2. You can cancel a registered domain within 48 hours of registering it for a full refund, and register a new one. After 48 hours, you can still cancel the first domain, but will not be eligible for a refund.

  3. What if I purchased the domain package (HD Video, etc.) Do I get that applied to my new domain if I cancel

  4. The upgrades apply to the BLOG. If you only ask for a refund for the domain name, you only get the five dollars back. Then you can buy a new one with the five dollars.

  5. So if I buy the available domain name through GoDaddy, I can transfer my current blog and the package settings that I bought to my new domain?


  6. How would I cancel my current domain on my WordPress blog and transfer my new domain to my blog so that I wont lose the benefits package I bought?

  7. Hi there,

    So domain names and blogs are separate, but you can link a domain name to your blog, so that when users go to your blog, they don't see the blog URL, they see a custom domain (like,, or whatever else you choose). If you cancel your domain name that doesn't affect your underlying blog whatsoever - your upgrades are associated with your user account and the blog URL, not your custom domain.

    So to answer your question - you can simply cancel the domain and register a new one - or map an existing one. If you give me a little more information about what you'd like to do next, I can help you with the steps.

    Would you like to cancel your current domain I can help you do this, if you are not able to. Please understand that if you cancel it, there is no guarantee that you will ever be able to get that domain again.

    If you have already bought a new domain but have not yet mapped it, you can use these instructions:

    If you have not yet bought a new domain, you can do so through your site's Dashboard at Dashboard > Store > Domains.

    I hope that helps!

  8. I purchased the domain name and made that domain the primary url on my blog but now my blog doesn't even appear anymore and it brings up some website called "my Site"..

    Please help I have no idea what to do to fix this.

  9. What does it say on the Domains page of your blog? Be aware it can take up to 72 hours for the DNS to settle down and everything to work.

  10. It says that is my primary url for the blog. However, if you visit, it takes me to a page called "my site".

    If I go into my dashboard to view my blog, it still takes me to this "my site" location

  11. What is the underlying URL of the blog?

  12. Originally it was (which I purchased directly through wordpress so everything was fine). Wanted to change my blog domain to so I purchased that on Monday, went into settings and made that the primary domain, and now I can't even access my blog because it directs me to a page labeled "my site"..

    If it matters, I purchased through GoDaddy and not through WordPress...

  13. Hi there,

    Is this the site you're trying to access? strips out the "www" part of the domain name, so if you type it in, you can get an error.

    Does this help?
