How do I get a domain for my WordPress site?

    Once you register a domain (and if it’s available, it will be under $10/yr), you need to have a host. Your hosting provider should be able to walk you through what you need.

    Since you are using x10.mx, a free host provider, I’m not sure what their TOS is. You may want to ask this question to someone over there.

    Edit the nameservers (in DNS Settings) on your domain registrar account to reflect your hosting provider.

    Usually something like:

    NS1.hostingprovider.com
    NS2.hostingprovider.com

    Then go to the control panel on your hosting account and find “Parked Domains”. Add the domain name there.

    Now wait a good 12 hours or so (could be more, could be less) and type in the new domain name in your address bar to see if it goes to your site. If it does, then login to your WordPress account (self-hosted, not WordPress.com) and go to Settings. Now change out the two domain name fields to your new domain. It’ll log you out so it can update your links. Now log back in and you’re good to go.
