ok Guys, I received some amazing help and direction last night about bringing my blog back to life, so now my thing is I have it through WordPress but I purchased a domain through another place and now that I'm trying to use my own domain WordPress is charging me 100.00 to map it to my account Is there any way around this or do I have to bite the bullet???

I've never paid for that service.

Are you self-hosting? If so, there should be an option to use WordPress to create a site for the domain name.

Hi Susan,
yes, I already have my blog through WordPress that's where I started and still there but I recently bought my own domain and now I want to just use that search name but WordPress is asking for fees to map it to the existing WordPress blog I have with them. I haven't figured it out yet but it has to be a way I can use the purchased domain for my WordPress page, if not I'm gonna loose all my content starting over.

@Natishafost speak to @Rev
This sounds far more complicated than it should be. And, far too expensive!

The blog is through WordPress Dot Com -- not a self-hosted installation. @Natishafost, you can forward your domain from Godaddy to your WordPress blog for no additional charge. You do this in the control panel for your domain registration at Godaddy. I can provide help if you need it.

@natishafost,

Don't forget to make a backup of your site before you start, just in case something gos wrong.

Add a plugin that works with wordpress.com. I use duplicator I'm certain others work.

As free as the air we breath. Some people go a whole life time without making anything of it. Others breath, it seems, nothing but sighs of distain. A few, however, take that air and learn how to fly kites!
