  1. My site isn't pointing to http://www.willfaulks.com even though I have paid for it to do so and redirected through GoDaddy. It's STILL coming up as wwwdotwillfaulksdotcom.wordpress.com.

    Can you please advise?

    The blog I need help with is www.willfaulks.com.

  2. Should have added email. [email redacted] for:

  3. Click this link http://willfaulks.wordpress.com and note that one cannot map from a non-existent .wordpress.com blog URL to a domain.

    willfaulks.wordpress.com doesn’t exist The address willfaulks.wordpress.com cannot be registered. Sorry, that site is reserved! But you can sign up and choose another one.

    When we register a username account the matching blog is reserved for our future use. It cannot be obtained by anyone other than the person who has registered the matching username.

  4. P.S. Domain mapping is never instantaneous. It can take between 24 - 72 hours for a domain name change to propagate throughout the internet.

  5. Thank you. Registered on Dec 25th so should be good by now. We also have the user name, so I'm totally confused!

  6. Not to worry as Staff will sort this for you.

  7. Hi there,

    This is what I see:

    You have mapped the domain willfaulks.com to wwwdotwillfaulksdotcom.wordpress.com. That blog address was redirecting as "www.willfaulks.wordpress.com" so I updated the blog address to "willfaulks.wordpress.com."

    It will take up to 72 hours (again) for the propagation of the domain mapping to correct to this updated address, so you may see an error screen in the meantime.

    You should be able to log into your blog dashboard, and you can update your site title in Settings > General, if you like!

  8. Thanks you for the helpful reply.

    Can I check one more thing:
    When someone goes to http://www.WillFaulks.com, in their URL bar will they see that, or willfaulks.wordpress.com? (I have changed the Site Title in settings to http://www.WillFaulks.com but am unsure of what this actually does)

  9. Hi there,

    They will see your custom domain: willfaulks.com. But they can type in either address (once they type in willfaulks.wordpress.com, they will get redirected and will only see willfaulks.com).

    I hope that helps!

  10. It does loads. thanks a lot!

  11. Happy to help!
