(i.e. instead of http://yourblog.wordpress.com you could have http://www.yourblog.com) Jan 5, 2006 at 2:40 pm #140 carlbanksMember Well the WordPress.com FAQ stated a while back that it would be a nominal fee. Matt, any insight onto when this will come and what the fee will be exactly? Jan 5, 2006 at 7:17 pm #159 mattStaff Here’s the FAQ: http://faq.wordpress.com/2005/10/23/domain-mapping/ It’ll be one of the first paid features we add.

Well, I guess if you don’t have 50 domain names sitting around maybe you couldn’t…. Jan 6, 2006 at 12:03 pm #221 cyberboreanMember on the contrary: If one day I would want to install and host WP on my own side, may I retain my me.wordpress.com domain and point it to my new location? Jan 6, 2006 at 3:38 pm #241 stoneMember you can just post a link….ahaha.. Jan 6, 2006 at 3:43 pm #242 coinsMember Definitely would be the feature we’re looking forward to. Hopefully the fee wouldn’t be much different than a yearly domain fee (what are they now? $12/year?) Jan 7, 2006 at 6:49 am #294 59ideasMember $2.99 at Yahoo. Jan 7, 2006 at 6:51 am #295 59ideasMember Forget to add, that’s for new domain. Renew should be in the region of $7-8, less if you search hard and bother to switch. Jan 7, 2006 at 9:31 am #296 mattStaff We’ll likely be in the $12-20/yr range. Yahoo sells millions of domains, which is why they can lose money on new ones like that. Apr 15, 2006 at 2:48 pm #683 iacolareMember I think that a price between $12-20/yr would be totally fair, considering the fact that WordPress would offer free webspace along with it. I anxiously wait for this feature :) Author Posts The topic ‘WordPress.com w custom url’ is closed to new replies.
