Connect Your Domain to a WordPress Website | GoDaddy

By | December 10, 2019


You have a great looking WordPress website,
and now you’ve registered the perfect domain name. Ready to connect them? This video explains how to connect, or forward,
your custom domain name to your WordPress website. If you used WordPress to create a free website, your web address includes the name you chose that’s appended with .WordPress.com. But if you’ve registered a custom domain
name with GoDaddy, why not use it for your WordPress website? When you set up forwarding on your domain, visitors who search for your domain or enter it in a web browser, will see your WordPress site. Let’s see how… In your web browser, navigate to your WordPress website. Next, click in the address bar of your web browser, highlight the URL for your WordPress site and copy it to your clipboard. Now log into your GoDaddy account. On the Products page, find Domains, and to the right of it, click Manage. On the Domains page, choose the domain name that you want to forward to your WordPress website, and click Use My Domain. In the domain connector, click Connect to an Existing Site. On the Destinations screen, under Websites, click WordPress. Click in the WordPress blog URL field, and paste in the text you copied to your clipboard. When you’re finished, click Next. This dialog box is just asking you to confirm that you want your GoDaddy domain name to forward to your WordPress website. To confirm, click Finish. That’s it! Now when anyone types your unique domain name into a browser, they’ll see your WordPress website. Try it out!

    Do WordPress also charges separately for mapping external domain if one is using a WordPress free account?
    If they charge, any other option of not being charged by WordPress, for example – Web hosting?

    So I have a domain that's already connected to Tumblr, but now I want to switch it to wordpress.org. How would I do that? I've looked up so many videos online, and I just don't know how.

    to do this in 2018 is difficult, because godaddy as changed their web environment which make it complex to login into cpanel or connect with wordpress

    guys if you want to totally remove the wordpress.com after the website you should make a business subscription otherwise it will be sending to the same link.

    This video is a deceit. It claims to change your domain name from .wordpress.com to .com but all it does is redirect to the wordpress.com website… Stop deceiving people!!!!!!!!!
