    Do you have permission to use the wordpress trademark in your domain name from the WordPress Foundation?

    No, haven't got permission. Just going through the trademark policy page. WordPress Expo is just a community showcasing how developers and designers alike are using wordpress.

    You still need to get permission to use wordpress in your domain name.

    Yes i read that. I want to offer a free service promoting the use of wordpress. I didnt know about the trademark use policy until now. What should i do with WordPressExpo now?

    I'd suggest registering another domain name (anything with just wp in the domain name should be fine) and switching the site over to that for now or until you get permission to use the original domain name.

    Shouldn't you stop using that domain name until you have permission?
