    I just had my http://www.diykreativity.com remapped to wordpress.com
    i dont think i even needed to do that being that diykreativity.com was already redirected to wordpress.com How do I reverse it if i even need to? I dont want to pay for something I dont need.

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

    diykreativity.com crashes – it is pointing to your registrar –

    If you want visitors to http://diykreativity.wordpress.com/ to see diykreativity.com in the browser address bar then you need domain mapping – domain mapping will also mean that people going to diykreativity.com will end up on your blog here –

    If you don’t care about your domain name (diykreativity.com) and if it ever displays in the address bar of the browser then just domain forward from your registrar to your blog here – but then visitors will NEVER see diykreativity.com in the browser and you will never build a brand or recognition and you will confuse your visitors

    As auxclass mentioned, domain mapping will show the address diykreativity.com in the browser’s address bar, and will be the address people will bookmark.

    For this to take effect, you still need to update your name servers to point to WordPress, and then set diykreativity.com as your primary domain under Store > Domains.

    Here are full instructions:

    You are free to cancel your domain mapping upgrade for up to 30 days after purchase, under Store > My Upgrades.

    Just let us know if you need anything else.
