DNS not set up properly

    Hi WordPress.

    I have recently purchased a .com through wordpress.com but I seem to have difficulty setting up my DNS. Everytime I try to switch my blog from .wordpress to .com I get this message http://oi44.tinypic.com/2hoxwz6.jpg can anyone tell me what I have done wrong?

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

  2. What is the exact domain URL starting with http:// that you are referring to?

    In order to map to a domain one must have an underlying .wordpress.com subdomain blog to map from. If you have registered a .wordpress.com blog you log in under the exact same username account that registered the blog and purchase a domain name by purchasing an annually renewable domain mapping upgrade for the blog. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/

    If you already own that domain name see here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/

    Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades is where you do the primary blog set up knowing it can take between 24 - 72 hours for domain name propagation to take place throughout the internet. You can view the DNS changes here > http://www.whatsmydns.net/ What's important during that stage is to be patient.

    Well I don't have a .com site. I have bought the .com from WordPress and I now want to change my .wordpress to .com http://theboleyninheritance.wordpress.com/ this is the direct link. I have done everything you said but when I want to make the .com my primary blog I get that message I posted.

  4. As noted above

    If you already own that domain name see here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/

    also what is the domain name you have purchased?
