Domain Help! Urgent!

  1. HI! I have a blog (www.iceonthegold.com). I purchased the domain on wordpress.com. I have now decided that I would like my blog to be on the Blogger platform. I have tried updating nameservers, but that requires me to have a new host...which I can't do because my domain is registered through wordpress.

    How can I take my domain from pointing to (iceonthegold.wordpress.com) to (iceonthegold.blogspot.com)? I have been trying to do this since July 4th with absolutely no luck, and changing nameservers, etc. has not been working.
    Someone please HELP and please explain to me what I'm doing wrong/what I need to do OR if anyone is so kind you can just do it all for me! Haha, but seriously I NEED HELP! DROWNING!

    The blog I need help with is iceonthegold.com.

  2. If my question(s) are not clear, please let me know and I will do my best to explain what I'm trying to do. Thanks in advance!

  3. You HAVE a new host: blogspot. In order to change a whatever.wordpress.com URL to point to a blogspot blog, you don't need to change nameservers, you need a redirect upgrade.

    If, on the other hand, you have a custom domain, you need to change the nameservers and then wait. WAIT. Up to 72 hours for the DNS to settle down. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/move-domain/ and you will have to get the information for the nameservers from Blogspot.

  4. What is a redirect upgrade?

    I thought that what I had WAS a custom domain through WordPress (iceonthegold.com). Doing a redirect upgrade is not something I've heard before, so could you please clarify?

    Thank You!

  6. Hi amalyssa,

    Blogger requires A records to be set up (for reference, https://support.google.com/blogger/troubleshooter/1233381?hl=en#ts=1234251,1734115)

    Normally we would be happy to handle those updates on our end. In this case, it looks like a domain transfer has been initiated for iceonthegold.com, so I will not be able to assist with this further. Once your domain has been transferred to your new registrar, you can follow the instructions above to set up your domain with Blogger.
