Domain from GOdaddy to WordPress

  1. So I got a domain from GoDaddy.com and I changed the namesavers to wordpress.com like I read under the instructions in "support" and after I did that it said something about a DNS system and something else about it taking up to 48 hours to take effect....so now I'm trying to figure out how I'll know when its taken effect.

    Ugh, I need help :/

    someone? anyone?

  2. You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you'll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It'll help people to answer your question.

    This is an automated message.

  3. Did you also map the domain using these instructions?

    We also need the domain name you are trying to map as well as the base WordPress.COM blog to give you accurate help

  4. BrooklynsCanvas.com is the domain name

    I do not have a wordpress.com blog set up yet, only an account. Do I need to set up a blog first?

    and yes, I have followed the instructions changing the namesavers to:
    NS1.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS2.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS3.WORDPRESS.COM

    After I submitted that, it said that it may take up to 48 hours.

    I have also just purchased hosting through godaddy as well, in hopes that it would make life simpler.

    Sorry if this had made you helping me more difficult.

  5. If you want to map to a blog here using the instructions I gave you above you need a blog here - at any rate you need a blog somewhere for your domain name to point to - if you purchased hosting at Godaddy then you want your blog there and point the name servers to Godaddy and set your site up there to catch your domain name - - you also need to install WordPress.ORG software on your Godaddy account

  6. So because I have hosting with GoDaddy I should use them as a host for WordPress.org? okay.
    I directed my domain name servers to here (WordPress.com). How do I point it back to GoDaddy from here?
