My domain

I will absolutely buy anything off the internet at the moment. Today, I bought a domain name for this blog.

I didn’t really set out to get one, however I have been interested in seeing if I could get one on and off for a bit, so as to make this site a bit more professional, like (well as professional as I can make it). Out of curiosity, I wanted to see if lynsblogson.co.uk was available, and funnily enough, it was. So I bought it. Only for 12 months though.  I’ll extend it if I am still running this thing when the time on it is up.

The only thing now is working out how I actually use it on here. Is it better/easier for me to transfer the name onto here or is it easier for me to transfer the whole blog over to where I bought the domain name from and have them host it? I love using wordpress and wouldn’t want to export it to another host thinking I’d lose everything I like about using this. I have read up on stuff online but all it does is confuse me.

Maybe I should have looked further before doing it, but then it might well have been gone. Well it most likely may not have, but you know…

    If you want to keep that domain for this content, it’s easiest to simply transfer the name onto here. You can do that easily enough by setting the domain name server; WordPress should have a guide. (I’ve done it actually through WordPress, so it more or less took care of its own minutiae.)
