Domain Mapping from Blogger-->Wordpress

  1. Hey guys,

    I just purchased the Domain Mapping upgrade for my club's blog and I'm trying to get everything set up. I added the nameservers and got that settled and I set blackpoweron.com as our default domain. Now here's the problem. The domain name I was using was attached to our Blogger blog before we moved to WordPress.com and I deleted the blog there and erased the "ghs.google.com" in the cname record and the A Host names too. The blog is not going to a google page giving me an 404 error. What do I need to add to the cname or A host records to point it to my blog? I'm a newbie at this so I hope I didn't make a stupid mistake with this....

    The blog I need help with is blackpoweron.com.

  2. What is the blog you are trying to map the domain name to? A whois shows http://www.blackpoweron.com/ the name servers pointing to Godaddy.

    You might be in the wrong forum.

  3. Yea the domain name is from Godaddy, which we used for our Blogger blog. When we moved to WordPress.com we decided to move the domain name to the new blog of course but it doesn't seem to be linking up saying the website couldn't be found even after doing all the nameservers right and having everything confirmed in the Domain menu on my dashboard.

  4. What is the URL of the "new" blog?

  5. lol sorry guys. It just fixed itself on its own. I'm cool now <3

  6. Your name servers are set for a blog on Godaddy not for a blog on WordPress.COM.
