    Hi,

    I’m planning on registering a domain and associate it to a blog on wordpress.com.

    Is it possible to use such domain with wordpress.com in the following manner:

    http://www.myblog.com/en ## the English version of myblog
    http://www.myblog.com/pt-br ## the Brazilian Portuguese version of myblog

    etc?

    Thank you

    Not with wordpress.com,
    however you could map blogs to multipe subdomains, fo example

    en.myblog.com
    pt-br.myblog.com

    and so on.

    Thank you very much tandava108.

    Just to make sure I got this right:

    – register the domain myblog.com
    – create the subdomains: en.myblog.com / pt.myblog.com
    – then each subdomain can be mapped to their respective wordpress.com counterparts

    In the case that I’m about to register the domain of interest through wordpress.com, is the subdomain creation step what is referred to as “Domain Mapping Upgrade” ($12.00)? Therefore, the math from my side would be:

    $17.00 (domain registrarion) + 2×12.00 (2 subdomains, one per language)?

    Is that what you mean?

    Thank you very much once more,

    That would be right, though you could save $12 a year if you used the main blog name myblog.com as one of your language blogs, fo example had myblog.com and pt.myblog.com. The $17 includes the mapping of the base domain to a blog.
