this my sound stupid but…

  • i’m a newbie and i have a free wordpress.com host (iskoblog.wordpress.com). now i want to move this to my own hosting. i was able to install wordpress and transfer all of my few posts there but one thing i didn’t consider: domain. for my own host it’s now something like http://myserver.com/~username/wordpress/

    so is there any way to get my own hosted blog to have adress like iskoblog.wordpress.com or something else or do i just have to go shopping for a domain?

  • That’s not a stupid question at all. 🙂

    Yes, you will have to purchase your own domain in order to have your own ‘clean’ URL. I would recommend GoDaddy.com as an ideal place to shop for one.

    i was afraid of that 🙂

    and thank you for very speedy respond, this site has one of the most helpful and active support forums i’ve ever seen.

    well now i’m an owner of a brand new godaddy domain and i’m of to blog.
