    Yes. On WordPress.com, you can use a custom domain for your blog (such as yourgroovydomain.com) instead of the default address you get when you sign up (like yourgroovysite.wordpress.com). This is called Domain Mapping, and it’s a paid upgrade: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/

    After you make the domain mapping purchase here > Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades and do the set up it can take between 24 – 72 hours for domain name propagation to take place throughout the internet. You can view the DNS changes here > http://www.whatsmydns.net/ What’s important during that stage is to be patient.
