    Hello,
    I’d like to move my blog hosted on Hostmonster to WordPress.com keeping my domain.
    In order to transfer my domain to WordPress I need to give someone o insert somewhere my epp code. Domain mapping is not the solution, as I’d prefer not to pay twice for may domain…
    Can anybody help me with this?
    thank you
    L.

    The blog I need help with is www.ciudadparalela.com.

    The blog you specified at http://www.ciudadparalela.com does not appear to be hosted at WordPress.com.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you’ll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don’t understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It’ll help people to answer your question.

    You can’t transfer a domain name to WordPress.COM – but you can map the domain name to a blog here – but you need to keep the registration not at WordPress.COM – so you don’t pay twice

    Domain mapping is currently $ 13.– / year

    You can export your old blog and import the content here

    thank you auxclass.
    actually i do pay twice: for the domain itself and for mapping it (13$)…
    as i said, Domain mapping is not the solution…
    thanks anyway

    Domain mapping IS the solution. You pay WordPress.com only once, for the domain mapping. For the domain itself, well, you said you already own it.

    When you were at Hostmonstor they built in the cost of the domain mapping into your regular hosting costs – at WordPress.COM the base blog is free and domain mapping does take extra work on the part of WordPress.COM – compared to the cost of other hosting and the massive ability of blogs here to handle high traffic the $ 13.– / year is a real bargain

    Yes, it’s a real bargain but now i’m paying 18$ /y with domain mapping i’ll pay 18$ + 13$ /Y, is not convenient.
    Thank you anyone caring about this issue.

    You bought the mapping service from Hostmonster and now you want to buy the mapping service from WordPress. Of course you have to pay.
