Although "adding a domain" seems to be working again (see http://wordpress.com/forums/topic.php?id=5776&replies=6), registering a domain is still unavailable.
I would be happy to register my domain through another registrar, but I don't really want to have to pay twice.
I thought that with WP.com I could either (a) register a new domain for my blog for $15 or (b) use an existing domain for $10. Is this still the case?
If it is, and I registered through another domain registrar, I would have to pay the $15 there to register and then the $10 at WP.com to use it on my blog.
Hence, I'm anxiously waiting for the WP.com domain registration to return to life--or for someone to tell me that I'm missing something on the domain fee structure
