    I’m confused, do I still have to purchase an domain mapping upgrade at WP.comnto have my domain forwarded to my WP.com blog?

    Hi Kleig. Yes, you would still have to purchase the domain mapping upgrade with WordPress.

    I went to my Hover account and added my WordPress.com link in the forward area. Now do I go to WordPress and pay for the mapping, and that is all I need to do? When I used Blogspot it was free to redirect my Hover domain name to my blog. Why does WordPress charge for this? Is there a way around not having to pay for the WordPress mapping and direct to the blog anyway?
