I have purchased a new public custom domain, in order to remove the "wordpress" from the URL, along with starting a wordpress.com account and starting my blog today. Yet the domain - shanibit.com - is not working and does not lead to my wordpress.com blog. whois says it's available.
Tried going into Store>Domains and adding the domain and activating it but the result was: "The domain shanibit.com is available to be registered and added to your blog. You can use it as your blog address for $17.00 a year." and a form to fill which I already filled up and paid for.
Where did my custom domain purchase go wrong?
The blog I need help with is shanibit.wordpress.com.
