Let's say I buy a custom domain myblog.com and I host at wordpress... if I access the dashboard page on my blog, will it have wordpress.com in the URL?

I want to be able to manage my blog behind school firewall.. thanks

  • How does your school firewall work?

  • I dunno anything about that ;) they probably block wordpress.com

  • I'm guessing it just blocks anything matching *.wordpress.com

  • So you probably should ask your question more directly, like: How can I run a blog on worpdress.com even if my schools firewall is blocking *.wordpress.com?

  • try blogging by email
  • have your analytics and stats on google analytics or outside source
  • have comments emailed to you

that will leave very few things to be done thru administration

to bypass security system try VPN or use of proxy


Yes, administration will still be under the wordpress.com subdomain.

While content will be domain mapped, administration is done through your wordpress.com subdomain - and attempts to access wp-admin under your mapped domain will redirect to the wp.com subdomain.

  • shame. Any idea how to fix/buypass that?
