For various reasons related to our WordPress trademark, we ask if you’re going to start a site about WordPress or related to it that you not use “WordPress” in the domain name. Try using “wp” instead, or another variation. We’re not lawyers, but very good ones tell us we have to do this to preserve our trademark. Also, many users have told us they find it confusing.

If you already have a domain with “WordPress” in it, redirecting it to the “wp” equivalent is fine, just as long as the main one users see and you promote doesn’t contain “WordPress” and in the long term you should consider transferring the old one to the Foundation.

“WordPress” सबडोमेनमा ठीक छ, जस्तै wordpress.example.com, हामी केवल शीर्ष स्तर डोमेनहरूको बारेमा चिन्तित छौँ।

हामीले यो कुरा हामीलाई सोध्ने जो कोहीलाई भनेका छौं, हामी यसलाई सार्वजनिक गर्न चाहन्छौँ ताकि धेरै मानिसहरू यो नीति बारे सचेत हुन सकुन्।

If you’re seeing other domains using WordPress, and they’re not WordPress.com, WordPress.net, WordPress.org, WordPress.tv, or WordPressFoundation.org, they’re not allowed. You should contact the owner and reference this page. We see this most frequently with spammy sites distributing plugins and themes with malware in them. By calling them out, you’re helping protect the integrity of the project.
