en WordPress.com Forums › Support Signed up for a domain through Google Domains Author Posts Nov 8, 2019 at 9:55 pm #3391488 mlsr13yahoocomMember I signed up for a domain name through Google Domains. Now WordPress wants me to transfer the domain to WordPress that includes a one-year extension then $18/year thereafter. Is there any reason why NOT to do this?

Mapping allows you to keep the domain registered with your current domain registrar and direct it to your WordPress.com site: https://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/ A transfer would allow to manage both your site and domain from the same place: https://en.support.wordpress.com/move-domain/incoming-domain-transfer/ So, basically, are you an “all of your eggs in one basket” type of person, or “not all of your eggs in one basket”? :) Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
