And since there are millions of sites created each year, it means the address you’d like isn’t always available.<\/p>\n\n\n\n<p>Today, a whole new range of possibility opens up: free .blog subdomains.<\/p>\n\n\n\n<h2>What’s a subdomain?<\/h2>\n\n\n\n<p>Glad you asked! This site’s address is <em>blog.wordpress.com<\/em>. Here, <em>wordpress.com<\/em> is the domain and\u00a0<em>blog\u00a0<\/em>is the subdomain<em>.<\/em><\/p>\n\n\n\n<p>Say your name is Molly and you’re starting a food blog. The domain mollysfoodblog.wordpress.com — that is, the subdomain “mollysfoodblog” on wordpress.com — is already taken by someone. Or you’re starting a website to offer tech advice; but there’s already a site using techadvice.wordpress.com, drat!<\/p>\n\n\n\n<p>Now you have more options: you can choose to use a free subdomain with a .blog address, like mollys.food.blog or advice.tech.blog. There’s a list of popular .blog domains we’ve reserved just for this:<\/p>\n\n\n\n<div class=\"wp-block-columns has-3-columns\">\n<div class=\"wp-block-column\">\n<ul><li>art.blog<\/li><li>business.blog<\/li><li>car.blog<\/li><li>code.blog<\/li><li>data.blog<\/li><li>design.blog<\/li><li>family.blog<\/li><li>fashion.blog<\/li><li>finance.blog<\/li><li>fitness.blog<\/li><\/ul>\n<\/div>\n\n\n\n<div class=\"wp-block-column\">\n<ul><li>food.blog<\/li><li>game.blog<\/li><li>health.blog<\/li><li>home.blog<\/li><li>law.blog<\/li><li>movie.blog<\/li><li>music.blog<\/li><li>news.blog<\/li><li>photo.blog<\/li><\/ul>\n<\/div>\n\n\n\n<div class=\"wp-block-column\">\n<ul><li>poetry.blog<\/li><li>politics.blog<\/li><li>school.blog<\/li><li>science.blog<\/li><li>sport.blog<\/li><li>tech.blog<\/li><li>travel.blog<\/li><li>video.blog<\/li><li>water.blog<\/li><\/ul>\n<\/div>\n<\/div>\n\n\n\n<p>These .blog subdomains work just like the regular wordpress.com subdomains — they don’t expire, they’re free to use for the lifetime of your site, and you can always replace them with a custom domain at any time.<\/p>\n\n\n\n<h2>How do I get one?<\/h2>\n\n\n\n<p>First, create your new site. In the first step of signup, we’ll ask you about your goal for your site — select <em>only<\/em> the “Share ideas, experiences, updates, reviews, stories, videos, or photos” option. In our experience, the people who select this option generally find that a .blog subdomain fits their site well. Fill out the other fields as well, and click&nbsp;<em>Continue<\/em>.&nbsp;<\/p>\n\n\n\n<figure class=\"wp-block-image\"><img data-attachment-id=\"40879\" data-permalink=\"http:\/\/en.blog.wordpress.com\/screencapture-wordpress-start-about-2018-11-21-12_09_241\/\" data-orig-file=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2018\/11\/screencapture-wordpress-start-about-2018-11-21-12_09_241.png\" data-orig-size=\"1426,1600\" data-comments-opened=\"1\" data-image-meta=\"{&quot;aperture&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;credit&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;camera&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;caption&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;created_timestamp&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;copyright&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;focal_length&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;iso&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;shutter_speed&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;title&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;orientation&quot;:&quot;0&quot;}\" data-image-title=\"screencapture-wordpress-start-about-2018-11-21-12_09_241\" data-image-description=\"\" data-medium-file=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2018\/11\/screencapture-wordpress-start-about-2018-11-21-12_09_241.png?w=267\" data-large-file=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2018\/11\/screencapture-wordpress-start-about-2018-11-21-12_09_241.png?w=913\" src=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2018\/11\/screencapture-wordpress-start-about-2018-11-21-12_09_241.png\" alt=\"\" class=\"wp-image-40879\" \/><\/figure>\n\n\n\n<p>Now, in the next step when searching for a site address, you’ll see a free option at the top of the list. We’ll suggest a .blog subdomain related to the terms you entered in the first step. For example, if you searched for “Tech Advice,” we might suggest <em>advice.tech.blog&nbsp;<\/em>as an address for your site.<\/p>\n\n\n\n<figure class=\"wp-block-image\"><img data-attachment-id=\"40880\" data-permalink=\"http:\/\/en.blog.wordpress.com\/screencapture-wordpress-start-domains-2018-11-26-15_11_441\/\" data-orig-file=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2018\/11\/screencapture-wordpress-start-domains-2018-11-26-15_11_441.png\" data-orig-size=\"2049,1347\" data-comments-opened=\"1\" data-image-meta=\"{&quot;aperture&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;credit&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;camera&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;caption&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;created_timestamp&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;copyright&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;focal_length&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;iso&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;shutter_speed&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;title&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;orientation&quot;:&quot;0&quot;}\" data-image-title=\"screencapture-wordpress-start-domains-2018-11-26-15_11_441\" data-image-description=\"\" data-medium-file=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2018\/11\/screencapture-wordpress-start-domains-2018-11-26-15_11_441.png?w=300\" data-large-file=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2018\/11\/screencapture-wordpress-start-domains-2018-11-26-15_11_441.png?w=1024\" src=\"https:\/\/en-blog.files.wordpress.com\/2018\/11\/screencapture-wordpress-start-domains-2018-11-26-15_11_441.png\" alt=\"\" class=\"wp-image-40880\" \/><\/figure>\n\n\n\n<p>Click <em>Select&nbsp;<\/em>next to the address you choose, and you’re all set,<\/p>\n\n\n\n<p>Your new website and its perfect address are only a few clicks away. If you start a new site with a .blog subdomain, let us know in the comments! We’d love see what you create.<\/p>\n",
