My confusion was derived from stating that the WordPress will be hosted with
our URL - I mistook that to mean that we wanted a WordPress installation
hosted on one of SugarLabs' servers. The option on WordPress.com to host
the vueltaCiclista.wordpress.com blog at vueltaCiclista.sugarLabs.org will
cost $12 annually, but the site is already set up and the only thing needed
then is to purchase the forwarding service.
I can provide account information to whomever will purchase the forwarding.
