Switching to WordPress.org

    Hi–

    I recently created a new site with a mapped domain. However, I realized the WordPress.org is better suited for my site’s needs (particularly it’s plugin capabilities).

    I’m wondering how I would go about switching my site over to WordPress.org and if I can retain that same mapped domain (which I purchased through United Domains).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I’m not particularly savvy with this stuff, so as much detail as possible would be amazing.

    Thank you,

    Shae

    The blog I need help with is mycra.sh.

    Thanks @timethief . @jonesbrownlawyers , I recommend leaving your domain mapping with us in place for a while, even while the domain is pointed to a new host.

    That way if anyone tries to visit your old WordPress.com site, they’ll be automatically redirected to your new site. If you have questions on that, let us know.
