How do I set my custom domain in my WordPress.com admin?

Filed in Domain

Please note that Aarcade custom domain and email services are only available with an Aarcade Domain & Email Plan.

From your WordPress.com dashboard navigate to the Store > Domains controls and enter your custom URL, provided by Aarcade, in the Add a Domain > http:// field.

Your custom domain must be in the format:

something.your-domain-name.com

For example..

blog.aarcadethemes.com

Note that WordPress.com charges a fee to allow a custom domain. If everything is configured correctly, you will be prompted to pay WordPress.com for the upgrade and to complete the mapping process.

After you have made your purchase, navigate to the Store > Domains, select the radio button next to your custom domain, and click the Update Primary Domain button.
