Adding my purchased domain to my blog (DNS Settings)

  1. Hi,
    I've purchased the domain tkeshet.com and mapping through the upgrades of wordpress.com.

    I thought since it was all purchased within this site then all settings will be put automatically but I was wrong.

    The nameservers from the domain manager are :
    NS1.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS2.WORDPRESS.COM

    What exactly do I need to put in the DNS settings so that tkeshet.com will be mapped to by blog?

    The support page gives this info:
    MX <pref> <host>.
    TXT <text>
    CNAME <subdomain> <host>.
    A <subdomain> <IP>

    and show an example but I never got any IP info, TXT ? or any kind of the technical information that's supposed to fit in the DNS settings.

    The blog I need help with is tkeshet.wordpress.com.

    You need to find the nameserver section in your account on the website where you bought the domain, and change them to the wordpress ones you have stated. Then come back to the wordpress website and add the new domain.

    Nothing else should need changing.
