What is domain mapping?

By default, your blog will use the Typepad URL you selected during registration. It's in the form example.typepad.com. Domain mapping involves purchasing a custom domain, like www.myawesomeblog.com, from a registrar and then setting that domain as the URL for your blog.

Why should I use domain mapping?

Simply put, domain mapping allows you to own the address for your blog. Visitors won't see the typepad.com URL, they'll see the custom domain that you've selected. The URL will also generally be shorter and easier to remember. If you ever decide to move your site to another platform, you'll be able to use that domain on your new site, preventing the loss of readers.
