Some time back I have written on limitations of free WordPress.com blog and started offering WordPress.com to self hosted WordPress migration service. Though one thing which we needed to do in order to make the migration SEO (301 perma-redirection) friendly is to add the domain name into WordPress.com blog and then change the DNS to point to other hosting. This always add a lots of work, as DNS for that domain can’t be changed from the WordPress dashboard.
Today WordPress enabled DNS editing feature in which users can change the DNS of custom domain directly from dashboard.
What does it mean for users :
Those who are using free WordPress blog with custom domain, they can extend their blog with other services like Google apps, sub domains and so on. This is a good start from WordPress to give more features to WordPress.com users .
Do let us know if you have awith WordPress.com blog ?
