Deleted blog, still domain mapping, how to shut off?

  1. I created a blog then after about a few posts decided I wanted to have a it hosted elsewhere. The wordpress.com blog was domain mapped to another site, blog.website.com. I created another site for the new blog blogwebsite.com. I setup blog.website to show the new site blogwebsite.com. I deleted the wordpress.com blog, however the wordpress.com blog is still showing up at blog.website.com. blog.website.com points to the new blogwebsite.com. Anyone have any suggestions as to what to do about this?
    Thanks.

  2. Depends on where you registered the blog. If it was with another registrar, just change the name servers to your new host. If it was with wordpress.com you registered the domain, look back in your welcome email for the link to your account, username, password, etc.

  3. You'll have to change the name servers to point to the new host. You can check the FaQ section for undoing domain mapping.

  4. The DNS at the registrar has been pointing to the new domain, it's no longer pointing to the wordpress.com blog. The interesting thing is that new domain shows up sometimes and the wordpress.com blog other times. I don't understand why the wordpress.com blog is showing up at all.

  5. When did you make the DNS changes? It can take 24 (or sometimes more) for DNS to fully propagate.

  6. It's been several days now and the wordpress.com blog is still appearing.

  7. It can take many days for DNS changes to propagate. WordPress.com is simply receiving the request, not making any requests, so there is nothing on our side we can do unfortunately.
