This is a wordpress.com question NOT a regular wordpress question, for your information, whoever changed that. Thanks, no offense taken in the least. –  Arlen Beiler Jul 22 '10 at 19:14
    
@Arien only Wordpress.com questions are allowed here. Hence questions tagged with wordpress are wordpress.com questions. Please roll back the edit. :) –  phwd Jul 30 '10 at 14:18

Custom domains are a paid upgrade.

The Domain Mapping Upgrade allows you to use a custom domain name such as example.com instead of the standard WordPress.com domain name – example.wordpress.com – for your blog. This is a paid upgrade.

Wordpress.com has a tutorial on doing this once you've bought the upgrade.

You can add this from your admin control panel. –  Shevek Jul 1 '10 at 20:17

Another option is to set up your domain with your own hosting and install the Wordpress application there.

With our famous 5-minute installation, setting up WordPress for the first time is simple. We’ve created a handy guide to see you through the installation process. If you're upgrading your existing installation, we've got a guide for that, too. And should you run into any trouble along the way, our support forums are a great resource, where seasoned WordPress experts volunteer their time to help you get the most out of your blog.
