We’re excited to announce twelve new top-level domains — including .info, .biz, .mobi, .fm, and .tv — that WordPress.com users can register.
New Domains Available to Register
Starting today, we have twelve new top-level domains available for WordPress.com users to register. If you’re interested in buying a custom domain name for a new or existing site, you can now register domain names ending in .com.br, .net.br, .info, .biz, .mobi, .mx, .es, .nl, .be, .fm, .tv, and .in. These domains are available to all of our users — no matter where you are in the world.
With the addition of these new top-level domains, you now have a total of seventeen options to choose from when buying a domain name (including the existing domains .com, .net, .org, .me, and .co.).
If you’re an existing WordPress.com user, you can register one of these new domains for your site by going to Store → My Domains in your dashboard.
If you don’t have a WordPress.com account yet and want to register one of these domains for a new site, get started on the WordPress.com signup page.
We’re excited to make these domains available to you!
If you need assistance, don’t hesitate to send a note to our Support team. You can also learn more about domains in this introduction, as well as these detailed support pages on domains and domain registration.

It’s the new domain for Brittany in France. It would be interesting for my blog.
Thanks for your reply
How are the domains different and why do they have different prices?
What if my blog motorrio. com changed into one of those domains? Should I pay again or not
If I change, I’d expect WordPress to forward all my incoming to the new name . . .

Hi Mazur – How do I create a domain with a regional marker for Australia, e.g. newpiedpiper.com.au. Went to create a new blog with blog address ‘newpiedpiper.com.au’ (.com A$18.00/year). Screen displays ‘You entered a subdomain. Do you own this domain and want to map to it. No thanks I’ll choose a different blog name.’
In your info http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2013/06/24/intro-to-custom-domains/ you state “A domain’s TLD can act as a regional marker, such as domains ending in .ca, which is the country code for Canada”, so how do I register a domain with a .com.au ? Many thanks, cheers
Thank you for your response, shall register elsewhere and then map within WordPress. I have worked in a field that employed different enterprise website and intranet content management systems, and have to say I am really impressed at the level and quality of the functionality your CMS provides, and the frequency of system updates and themes. This is an excellent system – well done to all.
