[resolved] domain mapping - wordpress.com to .org (5 posts)

    I'm horrible at the technical terms, so bear with me! :)

    When I was still hosting my blog at wordpress.com I had paid to drop the wordpress part of the domain. A few months after, I switched my blog to a self-hosted site at wordpress.org.

    Now that I'm at the .org site, I don't want to keep paying the yearly fee at the .com site. What steps should I take to resolve this and still keep everything that was published before I transferred to self-hosted?

    My guess was from the wordpress.com dashboard, go to settings > domain, then click delete under actions. I wanted to confirm this is correct OR find out what I need to do.

  2. Did you buy your domain through wordpress.com?

    There are (possibly) a couple things going on.

    1) Paying for using a custom domain with wordpress.com (that's $17 a year). That you should be able to cancel.

    2) Paying for your domain name (usually about $10-$90 a year, depending on the TLD). That, if you did it THROUGH wordpress.com, you should NOT cancel, as you would lose your domainname.

    @grmindyjean - your case was 10 months ago, any resolution yet? I had the same problem now after wordpress.com asking me to upgrade a new domain without the 'wordpress'.

    Do I need to reblog all contents from wordpress.com blog into my new wordpress.org self-hosted blog?
