    I have a domain (preguntame.info) I would like to use for my blog.

    I just created wordpress blog preguntame.wordpress.com, is there any way I can direct my domain to preguntame.wordpress.com. I have not find anything about DNS numbers. Actually I am not sure if this is possible.

    If you already have a domain, why not install WordPress into it and host it yourself?
    If you don't think you can do it - these guys can:
    http://install4free.wordpress.com

    Otherwise, do a Google search for "redirects". There are several methods for doing it.

    My cpanel has wordpress available for installation via fantastico. I have wordpress installed for all my domain names.

    Do other web hosting companies not offer this? My hosting company is pretty cheap. I struggled with installing wordpress myself until I decided to explore the cpanel. I found wordpress and many other programs under fantastico. Very simple installation that way.

  4. I think you're confused, preguntame. You're on WordPress.ORG right now (the website for the standalone version of WordPress), not WordPress.COM (the site for a hosted version of WordPress). You need to use their forums...

    If you already have a domain, why not install WordPress into it and host it yourself?

    Because maybe they don't have hosting?

    Actually I am not sure if this is possible.

    It's not. There are places out there though like Sitelutions that'll allow you to point your domain at their site where they'll then make an iframe for you. It'll show your domain name in the address bar and your website in the window.

    most times the Registrar - the company you wne through to register your domain name through, might offer this already in your domain costs, or mihgt add a "forwarding feature" at an additional cost ... somewhere like $5.00 USD ..

    i know the company i use ... RegisterFly.com offers this in their low domain cost of $8.99 USD per domain .. now extra costs or strings.

  6. Oh, forgot to mention that Sitelutions is free for forwarding / iframe wrapping. It's good stuff and I have my personal domain using their DNS servers. :)
