    Hi! You can map your own domain name to your WordPress.com blog with these steps.

    You’ll need to update your domain nameservers to point to WordPress.com and then purchase a domain mapping upgrade.

    Hi!

    I am wanting to do the same thing, change from a wordpress.com to my own (already registered) address and I understand all the documentation etc, the one thing I would like to know is: will I still be using my blog the same way?

    We are several administrators in various countries, will everyone still be able to access the blog the same way as before?

    Thanks!

    @kerrymurrayphotography – the only thing that changes is the name that is shown on the address line of your browser – if you type in the old your-site.wordpress.com you will we redirected to your-new-name.com. The Dashboard and how you use and manage the blog will be exactly the same.
