DNS settings

  1. Hello

    Is it possible to find out the DNS settings for my site?

    Wendy

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

    The blog you've linked to has the free wordpress domain, so you won't be able to edit the DNS settings, which are only really relevant if you have your own domain and need to configure it to show the correct site. If you're talking about a different domain, you can edit the DNS by going to Store -> Domains and then by clicking on Edit DNS.

  3. Hello

    I don't want to edit the DNS settings, I was wondering if I could find out what they are.

  4. Specifically, why are you asking this question please?

  5. Because I was told by my tech support to ask.

  6. But what is it that you want to do please?

  7. Map it to my URL.

  8. This is your free hosted WordPress.com blog http://wendyjpowell.wordpress.com/

    WordPress.COM is not able to accept incoming domain transfers. If you already have a domain and you want to use it with your WordPress.com site, follow the instructions for mapping an existing domain to your WordPress.com blog. http://support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/

    After you make the domain mapping purchase here > Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades and do the set up 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.

  9. Thanks for your help with this.

  10. You're welcome.

  11. When should I expect it to be connected?

  12. My site still is not connected. At this point it is not even possible to preview my posts. What can I do about this?

  13. Name servers:
    ns02.sibername.com
    ns01.sibername.com

    You need to fix the name servers per the instructions given above by @TT

    I added a zone record just in case one was not added earlier

  14. Hi there,
    I am also a Canuck and the domain redirect is operational for me. After you make the domain mapping purchase here > Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades and do the set up 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.

  15. Yikes! You did not set this up correctly
    Non-WordPress.com Nameservers
    Although wendypowell.ca has been registered, it is not using WordPress.com nameservers. If your domain is mapped to a self-hosted site, then your configuration may be fine as currently set up. If you wish to host your site at WordPress.com, you will need to update your nameservers as outlined below.
