Domain Names and Wordpress


    I'm looking at starting a website, and building /editing it through wordpress. They offer domain names, but don't have the one I want. I was wondering, if I were to buy one through Go Daddy for example, would I still be able to use wordpress to build the site? If so, how would that work?



    you can add your own domain name to moonfruit websites I should imagine it would be the same

    Thanks, I found a way to move the domain I've bought over to wordpress, and set it to redirect my site there. stupid question, but am I right in thinking wordpress hosts the website?

    Wordpress host it, yes.

    I thought so, yet when I put the web address in, it fails to find it, saying it cannot find the server. Any reason for this?

    Thanks for your help

    EDIT its working now, nevermind.

    Have you only just set the domain to forward to your wordpress site? It takes a little while to take effect sometimes. Give it a while then try again
