    When creating my blog, I wanted to buy the $99 value bundle and register the domain stylelot.com, but wasn’t able to pay on the spot so it changed it to stylelotdotcom.wordpress.com > why did this happen and is there anyway to change it to stylelot.com which is what I signed up as originally…

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

    Do not delete anything. I have tagged this thread for Staff assistance.

    PS: stylelot.com has been registered for several years – is that your domain name?

    Thank you for your incredibly fast responses!

    That was supposed to be my domain name – i don’t understand what happened because I am certain it hadn’t been taken, but that is certainly not my blog.

    Not sure if I can do anything from here …!

    The domain stylelot.com is already registered (by someone else?). See http://whois.domaintools.com/stylelot.com

    To change a blog URL ending in wordpress.com, please follow these steps.

    Or you can register a different domain like stylelot.me or stylelot.org 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.
