en WordPress.com Forums › Support Ownership of Domain Name Author Posts October 28, 2012 at 5:55 pm #1055374 joe390Member Hi! I am considering (for want of the technical term) taking the .wordpress.com out of my domain name. I have a few questions: Do I have full legal ownership and DNS control over the new domain name? Is it mine 100%? Why is it only 18 usd a year? Other domain hosting sites cost around 70 a year. I know you get what you pay for- what am I not paying for and thus not getting? Thank you :) October 28, 2012 at 6:47 pm #1055486 timethiefMember Understand that all hosting here is free of charge. The domain you purchase is your for as long and you keep paying annually to renew it.
