  • That would be a copyright violation.

    You can’t use ‘wordpress’ in your own site

    You can use wp, or press, or anything like that, but not wordpress

    http://wordpress.org/about/domains/

    Actually, you CAN use “WordPress” in the site, just not in the domain name. You can use it in subdomains. . . such as wordpress. bangladeshiwp .com but not in the domain. . . such as www. bangladeshiwordpress .com.

    If you have wpbangladeshi. com and then on the front page have a logo that says “Bangladeshi WordPress” then you are fine.

    The link James posted was the best clarifying of all. . . it put to shame my post and Rev. Voodoo. . .

    Well, you’re welcome, but I certainly wasn’t intending to put anyone’s posts to shame.

    Mountain of Hope & James,I already registers this two domains.

    we ask if you’re going to start a site about WordPress or related to it that you not use “WordPress” in the domain name.

    They suggested don’t use wordpress in domain.okay i understand the fact.but what can i do now??Can i contact the authority for permission??

    Yes, contact the WordPress Foundation:

    Thank you James

    Don’t get downhearted if they don’t let you use it. . . Registering domain names isn’t a huge expense. Just drop them and register new ones that fit with the copyright laws and expectations.

    Good luck!

    I Send a mail to the WordPress Authority.Still i didn’t get any response. Let’s see what they say…
    @mountain of Hope Thank you for your advice.

    I Send a mail to the WordPress Authority.Still i didn’t get any response. Let’s see what they say…

    How long ago did you email them?

    I have just written to them regarding wordpressangels.com and am hoping for a positive response. (wpangels.com is already taken!!)

    Kindest Regards

    Yesterday.

    @craigedmonds & @adnan628

    If you’re planning on making money, or running a business for a profit using the domin names with ‘WordPress’ in them, you will most likly not be approved.

    What you should do is find a domian name that is very close to what you want, like wpSOMETHING.com or in craigedmonds case try wp-angels.com and use that as your primary domain name.

    Then take the existing domain that you have that states ‘WordPress’ in them, and point them (DNS) to the root of your primary domain. You would then be able to use the domains that contain ‘WordPress’ in them (because they will direct to your site), and not Legaly be breaking any copyright issues because your primary domain would display ‘wpSOMETHING.com’ in the address bar.

    Just an Idea….

    Thank’s krisjay:-)

    But what about the wordpressplanet.com & Thewordpresstheme.com?????They also violating the copyright.
