Domain name not working

  1. I just signed up for the domain couchsideshow.com through wordpress and the website seems like it does not exist or just won't load. I just signed up for this today. Am I missing a step in the process or can I begin building and posting through that domain name soon?

    The blog I need help with is couchsideshow.com.

  2. http://couchsideshow.com/ resolves fine for me - it can take 24 to 72 hours for changes to reach the far corners of the internet and to settle down

  3. It's resolving for me too. It can take up to 72 hours for a domain name change to propagate through the internet, though it rarely takes that long. I'm surprised at how many members do not read the support documentation:

    5. To activate your new domain, select the button next to the one you wish to activate and click Update Primary Domain. Your blog will be accessible from both of these domains; the Primary Domain is what actually appears as your domain within the address bar of web browsers. If you do not see your blog at the new domain immediately, please allow some time for the DNS changes to propagate. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/register-domain/#instructions-for-registering-a-new-domain-for-your-blog
