Hello everyone!

I built a website and want to have a page with a blog on it.
Facts: I already have a host and a domain name AND want the blog look exactly like my site.
Problem: Wordpress.com offers its long extension ".wordpress.com" for its free version.
Question: Is there a way to keep my domain name, or, at least, a part of it, and have a free blogging host?

I can send you a screenshot of my site, if needed.

Thanks a million!
Daria

Most paid hosting services have WordPress ready to be installed and allow the use of your own domain name.
