DNS for domain from lcn.com

  1. Hi,
    I'm trying to set up my site and move it from digitalphotogallery (my old host site) to wordpress but I'm having a few problems.
    I originally purchased my Domain from lcn.com and have had it directing to digital photo gallery for the last year. I have followed the 'Map an Existing Domain' instructions however when I try to load my site it takes me straight to my old server not to wordpress but I'm not too sure why.
    Im also not too sure what to put in this section
    MX <pref> <host>
    TXT <text>
    CNAME <subdomain> <host>
    A <subdomain> <IP>
    SRV <_service._protocol> <priority> <weight> <port> <domain>

    Or if I need to change any of the DNS settings on lcn.com itself
    Please help!

    The blog I need help with is thenewtransmission.co.uk.

  2. It sounds like you need a hand fro Staff to map this existing domain. I'll tag this thread for Staff assistance. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.

  3. I am seeing http://thenewtransmission.co.uk/ point correctly to your WordPress.com site.

    It can take 24-48 hours for domain/DNS changes to propagate throughout the internet. It typically happens faster than that, but it really depends on your ISPs update frequency. If you are still not seeing the correct site appear after 48 hours has elapsed, please contact me again.

    Regarding the custom DMS records, have you seen this support page yet:

    Take a look through that page and let me know if you have any further questions. I'll be happy to help.
