    Hi — I want to purchase my domain name “thesmallc” but I am having a difficult time deciding whether I should call it .com or .net. This is not for commercial purposes. But what if eventually advertisers would like to promote on my blog, would it be suggested I use .com for only this purpose?

    Also, How do I purchase the domain name?

    Thank you.
    Rebecca

    The blog I need help with is thesmallc.wordpress.com.

    HELLO, personally i thing .com sounds better. and if you want to just purchase your domain name you can do that in THE STORE tab from you DASHBOARD. But if you want to use your site like a store and offere advertisments and products for sell, then you will need to transfer to a SELF HOSTED SITE and seek out a company like BLUEHOST. i hope this answers your question.

    Thank you for your response. I will use the .com but would this still be OK if I am not seeking to sell anything? And last question, once I purchase the domain name, it would be directed to my blog, correct? I only want to remove “wordpress” from the current alias and just call it “thesmallc.com”.

    One more question, can I create my own look from my own personal art/images?

    Thank you.

    You also need to buy domain mapping

    The package for this is $18 correct? Are they both located under my DASHBOARD?

    from what i understand i dont think you can create a full designed website using your own template unless you are selfhosted.

    that should be the one

    depending on the theme you can upload your own images for a header or background

    yes you wordpress.com links to the new one and if you dont pay to renew it in a year it goes back to the free site with wordpress.com at the end

    One question: if I purchase the the domain today and later decide to purchase the bundle, would the binder still cost me $99?

    Yes I think the Bundle would still be $ 99- and you will need to have the staff help you with the purchase as the Bundle has the domain name and mapping so I can’t be purchased directly (the staff need to flip a bit or something for you) – I don’t think I have seen prorated purchases but you could ask for something like that if you wanted to get the Bundle in the near future – the worst is they could say sorry and you would be out a part year of registration as the registration switches

    So if I purchase the bundle now there will be no need for me to contact the staff correct? Everything will run smoothly.

    Hi – How do you link from one post to another? For example, if I want to direct readers to visit another post from a current post, how do I link?

    I have a question: can I get the pro package and still get the privacy for my domain?

    Just link to the other post as an ordinary link, as if it were on another blog.

    Yes, you can get the pro package and also get Privacy for the domain, but that’s extra, I think.

    With the pro package, what am I really getting? Can you explain please?

    I have another question: If I get the pro bundle, can I downgrade later if I realize I didn’t need it to only keeping my domain name? And in that case, would I only be responsible for paying the $18 for the domain yearly?

    You have 30 days to cancel an upgrade except domain registration (48 hours) – the Bundle is a 30 day cancel one – you can keep your domain name if you cancel the Bundle and pay for only the domain name registration and domain mapping –

    Take a look at the bundle – do you want to change the look of a theme with CSS? Do you understand CSS at all? Do you need the extra storage space? Videos that you produce and upload yourself? YouTube and Vimeo videos can be embedded without any upgrade

    Is CSS easy to use? Is it user-friendly and what is it exactly? I am very interested in purchasing the bundle but need more info on why it is worth it. Thank you.
