WordPress.com + TrueName FAQs
Learn more about the offer for American Express cardmembers.
What is a TrueName domain?
TrueName domains are new domain extensions that offer more authenticity and flexibility for choosing a name that represents you. In addition to superior choice and creative brand-building power, TrueName domains offer more security than legacy domain extensions (like .com, .net, and others). Search for a TrueName to find the best fit for your industry and business.
What is WordPress.com?
WordPress.com is the most flexible and powerful website building platform in the world. Built by the people who created open-source WordPress software, which powers 39% of the websites on the Internet.

How are TrueName domains more secure?
TrueName domains use anti-phishing technology to keep you safe from imposters or hackers that use lookalike domains to deceive and defraud. This free, proactive service protects you from common forms of phishing attacks by blocking the registration of potentially malicious variations of your domain name.
Are TrueName and WordPress.com good for SEO?
