Domain mapping not working

  1. Hi There,

    I use domain mapping on my blog to change the name of ravisraman.wordpress.com to sethigherstandards.com.

    However, I found a better domain name I want to use http://www.yogiravi.com.

    I have already purchased yogiravi.com and added it as a second domain to be mapped to ravisraman.wordpress.com. I edited the DNS servers where that domain is hosted to pointed it to wordpress.com about 12 hours ago.

    I've tried selecting yogiravi.com as the primary blog domain but when I do that, it still goes to an old hosted wordpress account I have with another hosting company instead of my blog hosted at wordpress.com.

    Any ideas as to what could be going on?

    The blog I need help with is sethigherstandards.com.

  2. it can take 24 to 72 hours for changes to spread across the internet - changes usually start sooner assuming you did everything correctly - you can also have caching problems with your local ISP

    check the progress at the link below - http://www.whatsmydns.net/

  3. it's weird, still not working. Name servers are all pointing to wordpress for http://www.yogiravi.com but it doesn't resolve.

  4. I am in Canada. This is link > http://www.yogiravi.com/
    redirects to http://sethigherstandards.com/
    Contact Staff by email support@wordpress.com so they can sort this for you.

  5. What's happening is that the primary domain for https://ravisraman.wordpress.com/ is set to http://sethigherstandards.com/, not to http://www.yogiravi.com.

    If you want http://www.yogiravi.com to be your primary domain, you can specify that in the Options → Domains menu of your dashboard.
