In order to use a domain you purchased elsewhere with your WordPress.com site, you’ll need to purchase a mapping upgrade subscription for your domain. Please read:
Mapping an existing domain is included in both the Premium and Business upgrade plans. http://support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/
There is no monthly payment plan here. All upgrades must be paid for in full at the time of purchase and we are billed annually.
WordPress.com provides free blogs and hosts them free of charge. There are no bandwidth charges. All WordPress.com blogs come with 3000 megabytes (~3 GBs) of space for storing uploaded files and images. Free features are listed here https://en.wordpress.com/features/
See here for details of all 3 plans http://store.wordpress.com/bundles/ offered by WordPress.com.
Premium bundle details http://store.wordpress.com/plans/premium/
$8.25 per month, billed yearly
Business bundle details http://store.wordpress.com/plans/business/
$24.92 per month, billed yearly
The policy and prices have changed. All new accounts must purchase the Premium bundle of upgrades. Only renewal of an existing domain mapping upgrade is now available at the lower price. See: http://support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/
Note that each upgrade bundle applies to a single blog only and is for a single year only when it is due to be renewed.
We all pay in full for every upgrade at the time of purchase. Make sure you read the comparison very closely do you know exactly what the restrictions and limitations on WordPress.COM blogging are: http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

thank you for your answer. I have some douts too now.
The site i need help is: https://csiprojectblog.wordpress.com/
Wordpress can register only domains: .com, .net, .org o .me?
So the only solution that i have is to pay the domain registration by an other registar and pay the mapping to wordpress?
What is it a “mapping”? Is it a re-direct or an biunivocal association? (I mean: if a do a mapping from “www.csi-projec.org” to my wordpress web site, the domain “csiprojectblog.wordpress.com” will disappear on doesn’t?”
Can i remain in a free plan even if i do a mapping?
thanks in advance
the correct address of my actual domain is http://www.csi-project.org and it’s hosted on Aruba, where i buyed the domain registration.
an other issue: what abou my email service? Can i let it on Aruba? Or i have to transfer on WordPress? Does WordPress offer an email service?
If you’ve registered a domain elsewhere, and you purchase domain mapping for your WordPress.com site, it will allow you to replace the default csiprojectblog.wordpress.com site address with your domain. And you are correct, in this case, you would pay WordPress.com for the domain mapping upgrade, and you would pay your registrar for the domain registration itself.
This page will show you how to map your domain to your WordPress.com site:
On the other hand, if you want to register a domain here at WordPress.com, here’s the information on the domains we offer:
As for email, you can keep your email hosting with Aruba.
I hope that helps, and let me know if you have any questions with anything else!
