DNS needs to be updated

  1. Hi,

    I just have bought a Domain which is unmondedurable.fr on the january 24th 2013. I wanted to link my blog unmondedurable.wordpress.com to the domain I have purchased.
    I have waited since but the domain is still unvalid.

    Thus on board, I went to shop > DOMAIN. Then on the profil, it is written that I need to update the DNS. I clicked on it, I have tried to enter the NS1.WORDPRESS.COM to the form, but it doesn't work ! I got this message : 1. This does not match any of the DNS record formats. Same if I try for NS2 and NS3.

    So I am stuck and I don't know, how can I activate the new domain then ?

    Can you please tell me a solution, moreover I cannot have an access to the previous blog (unmondedurable.wordpress.com).

    Thank you for your answer

    The blog I need help with is unmondedurable.fr.

  2. I added a new DNS Zone record for your domain. This change may take a little while to be fully effective. Could you give it some time then try updating the name servers again?

    You can go to Store > Domains on your blog's dashboard and follow the steps there.

    Please take a look at the following guide before going through the process.

  3. Hi,

    Thank you for your answer. I have followed the guide all ready, but it didn't work. That's why I send you a request.

    Well I have now clicked on Trying adding my domain ... but I got this message : Nous avons vérifié les serveurs de noms et il semble qu'ils ne pointent pas encore vers WordPress.com. Si vous venez de les actualiser, veuillez vérifier un peu plus tard. L'actualisation d'un serveur DNS peut prendre plusieurs heures.

    On the other hand I tried to add the DNS records, but it is still doen't work !

    Checking on the guide, I wondering if I need a server ? I understood that changing the domain of my blog doesn't need a server, it is provided by wordpress right ?

    Well I will wait until tomorrow hoping it will be upgrading during the night.

    Thank you

  4. Looks like your domain is not pointing to WordPress.com name servers yet. Please go to your domain registrar's site and log into the control panel. You will need to update the name servers as below:

    NS1.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS2.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS3.WORDPRESS.COM

    For more information, please visit the help documentation provided by the registrar and our support page:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/

    Let us know if you have any questions!

  5. Well, I think there is a point that I misunderstood !
    What is my domain registrar's site ? Isn't it WordPress.com ?
    I mean, I have paid for 13$ to get this service ? If not, what is it for ?

    I keep reading the support page, and the mapping in wordpress still doesn't work.
    I start to get annoyed because I have bought this domain a week ago !!

  6. If wordpress.com is noit my domain registrar's site can I use OVH ?

  7. It's not possible to register .fr domains at WordPress.com. I thought your domain was already registered elsewhere, but it isn't. Feel free to register your site at OVH or another domain register, after that you can change the nameservers to point it to your WordPress.com blog.

    Sorry for the confusion.

  8. So what did I pay for ?
    I guess it will be fair to be refund, then, until it is not written that .fr doesn't exist !
    How can I process to get my money back ?

  9. You had purchased a domain mapping, this upgrade allows you to map an existing domain to your WordPress.com. I've canceled and refunded the upgrade for you.

    Feel free to repurchase the domain mapping upgrade anytime, to do so go to Store > Domains on your blog's dashboard and follow the steps there.

    Please take a look at the following guide before going through the process.

    Let us know if you need any help.

  10. Hi,

    Thank you for the refund and your reactivity.

    Now, I just have bought a new Domain on OVH : unmondedurable.fr. I want to make it linked to unmondedurable.wordpress.com.
    It doesn't work ! I changed the server name already in OVH, and when I try to reach the new domain I got this :

    Warning! Domain mapping upgrade for this domain not found. Please log in and go to the Domains Upgrades page of your blog to use this domain.

    So I go to wordpress > Shop > Domain, then I click on I own a domain ... But I have to pay for a domain. I already own the domain I just want to redirect unmondedurable.wordpress.com to unmondedurable.fr !!

    Can you please help to find a solution !!

    Thank you

  11. To map an existing domain to your WordPress.com blog requires the 'Domain Mapping Upgrade'. This upgrade costs $13 a year.

    You can go to Store > Domains on your blog's dashboard and follow the steps there.

  12. Ok now I do understand.

    One last question, the existing domain is .fr is it a problem ? It will works for sure then ?
    I mean I don't want to purchase a domain again without being sure it works !

    Thank you

  13. It won't be a problem. I see you've already changed the nameservers. You can now easily purchase the domain mapping upgrade.
