The blog I need help with is 78562cool.wordpress.com. March 7, 2013 at 7:27 am #1174661 kardotimMember To change a blog URL ending in wordpress.com, please follow these steps. Another alternative is to purchase a custom domain name to take “wordpress” out of the domain altogether.

March 7, 2013 at 12:55 pm #1174682 kardotimMember What’s the domain address you are referring to? I don’t see any domain registration or mapping upgrade under your account. March 7, 2013 at 1:13 pm #1174684 78562coolMember I was going to buy a domain from a trusted seller. I wanted to know if it was possible before I bought it March 7, 2013 at 1:24 pm #1174685 kardotimMember I see. And do you want to map that domain to your WordPress.com blog? Please explain your question in more detail. March 7, 2013 at 8:19 pm #1174711 78562coolMember Yes. After I move the domain to my site, can I change the URL of it? March 7, 2013 at 8:55 pm #1174721 kardotimMember It’s not possible to change a domain address once it’s been registered. You can easily register a different domain name at Store > Domains on your blog’s dashboard and follow the steps there. Please take a look at the following guide before going through the process.
