    My current domain name is karablythe.wordpress.com. I would like to upgrade AND slightly alter my domain name so that it reads karablytheabroard.com. Is it possible to change my domain name when I upgrade while still keeping my blog?

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

    Hi Jennifer,

    Thank for the response. I’ve read more on domains, but I’m still having a hard time determin how or if I can upgrade my current domain name to a different name.

    To explain my problem once more, my blog is currently karablythe.wordpress.com. I know I can easily upgrade to karablythe.com for $18 a month, but is it to upgrade my current blog AND change the domain (to something like karablytheABROAD.com) without having to build an entirely new blog? Or can I just map it to that new, upgraded domain?

    Many thanks in advance!
    Sorry, I’m a total blog newbie :)

    It makes absolutely.y no difference at all what the URL of the underlying .wordPress.com blog URL is that you are mapping to the domain URL from.

    So how do I map my old domain? Again, sorry if this is really basic stuff.
