The New Domain Name!

Hi readers!

I just changed my domain name. It is now, so the only difference between the old domain name and the new one is that the “WordPress” part is left out. However, if you forget the change in domain name and type in the old domain name, you will be redirected to (I tried this on my laptop and my phone). If this doesn’t happen to you, please let me know and I will be more than happy to contact WordPress Support.

Speaking of WordPress, they say that new domains may be unreliable for the first 72 hours. Unfortunately, those first 72 hours include my blog post next Tuesday. I therefore apologize in advance if you experience any growing pains between now and Tuesday evening with the new domain name. But if you experience any problems beyond Tuesday evening, please send me a message on Facebook, on Twitter, or by email so that I can contact WordPress.

In the meantime, enjoy reading my posts without seeing irrelevant ads!

Note: I wrote this blog post within minutes of publishing it, so I apologize in advance for any mistakes.

  1. Hello. I have some questions here. so you’re only using a domain & hosting provided by wordpress? not from another people who sells domain & hosting?
    i’ve been thinking to self-host & get a new domain for this blog but im still confused abt it. i’ve done some research abt it but it still left me confused and im afraid that i’ll have to face some techical difficulty in the future in setting up this blog.
    so when you self-host your blog, youre no longer logging in in or what? sorry if my questions come off as stupid 🙏🙏 thankyou.

    1. Hi Nadya!

      I am using a domain and hosting provided by WordPress. With the personal plan, you get a free domain name (as opposed to other companies that sell domains).

      You do still log into That part doesn’t change.

      Also, your questions don’t come off as stupid at all. 🙂 I had questions as well for awhile so I was once in the same position you’re currently in.

      I hope these answers help you make a well-informed decision about your blog!!!


      1. Thank you so much for ur answer 💖💖💖 im still considering the pros and cons from using domain & hosting provided by wordpress or by another web hosting.

  2. Serendipitous that I’ve come across this post. I’ve been trying to understand the differences between WPdotcom and WPdotorg for a few years. Up until a few weeks ago I assumed everyone knew DOTORG was superior, but cost money. Now I understand there are many DOTCOM folks who believe theirs is the best. (Reminds of the crusades just a bit; at least we’re not killing each other). Most of my earlier ideas about dotorg superiority have been laid to rest. One that remains though, is that with dotcom you don’t own your content. But you do with dotorg. On the plus side for dotcom, though, seems to be an easier path to connecting with other bloggers. Can you speak to any of these points or others? Thanks.

    1. Hi Janet! I have only used .com for this so I can only speak to the .com side of it.

      I can’t speak much for ownership of content, which is one of your concerns. But I can speak about connecting with members. for .com, you are right that it gives you an easy path to connect to fellow bloggers. This in turn can help get more PR for you all.

      1. Thanks. I’m feeling like a Catholic friend of mine who insists she’s only Catholic because she was born into it. I’m on dotorg because my web designer insisted that was the ONLY one to use. I never considered any others.

        I’m enjoying your posts.
