WordPress Problems..Again.

As I mentioned lately, I paid for a customized domain and my blog still redirects to the free one. And upon asking WordPress told me, now I have to buy a plan too, to use the customized domain for which I have already paid.

this is how the convo with them went.

None of it is making sense to me. I paid $18 for a customized domain and now they want me to pay at least $60 more to be able to use it. So customized domain is $78, not $18 as it says on the website.

Adding screenshots below to show that I paid for a customized domain that should be valid till next year. And my site still shows as stoneronarollercoaster.wordpress.com (the free domain)

  1. I agree with your conclusions. WordPress inducement seems to be a bait and switch scheme or at the very least intentional vague advertisement. I’ll personally wait for a more transparent site that is actually more affordable to transfer to. Best of luck…

  2. this year i decided to open a new website and i thought i d sign up for a premium? what i got was pro? whatever that means, it does nothing it promised, and it cost me, $220.00 per year. its is not what i asked for? i think over the last two years, wordpress misleads people, since all the wordpress changes, they are basically not working at all. my people no s are down down since?

    1. $220 for nothing hurts far more than my $18 (since I’m not going to pay for the plan i dont even need).

      did you write to them?
      my following go up and then go down, which doesnt make sense i get new followers everyday but total coiunt remains the same. wordpress has been having issues for last 2 years at least, i agree.

  3. You had expected they were operating under the mantel of integrity, believed their intention to be based on idealism; now you have discovered cancerous commercialism had hollowed out what you had perceived as a solid core and consequently dissolved your enthusiasm! You may want to stir up the beast, but will the beast respond accordingly to your demands?
