Domain Nameservers issue!

  1. Hello, I just signed up for the Pro Account. My domain name registered on Go Daddy is DJRolandLopez. I have followed the instructions laid out on WordPress and changed the Nameservers on Go Daddy. However when I type in the URL I am getting a DNS error.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Also is there a way I could change my wordpress domain to read djrolandlopez.wordpress.com rather than djrolandlopezdotcom??

    Thank you in advance for you help!
    Blog url: http://djrolandlopez.wordpress.com/

  2. Looks like your domain is not pointing to WordPress.com name servers yet. Please go to your domain registrar's site and log into the control panel. You will need to update the name servers as below:

    NS1.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS2.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS3.WORDPRESS.COM

    For more information, please visit the help documentation provided by the registrar and our support page:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/

    Let us know if you have any questions!

  3. Hi Kardotim!

    Thanks for your quick response! I already did that but I am still receiving DNS error.

  4. Are the nameserver records in your registrar's control panel already set correctly? if so, please note that it might take 24-48 hours before DNS settings are fully propagated.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

  5. Ah well :) Thank you for letting me know. I guess I will have to wait to witness the changes.

    Thanks again for your help.

    One more thing, is there a possibility to change my domain name? It now read djrolandlopezdotcom which is a mistake. I want it to read
    djrolandlopez only

  6. If you want I can move your domain (djrolandlopez.com) to your djrolandlopez.wordpress.com acccount. Please reply to confirm.

  7. No Kardotim, I do NOT want to move my domain as I want
    DJRolandLopez.com to be the Primary domain.

    I only want to change the name as I have it now. At the moment it reads djrolandlopezdotcom.wordpress.com, I want to get rid of the "dotcom" part.

    Thank you!

  8. I understand, but you already own these two addresses:
    djrolandlopez.wordpress.com and djrolandlopezdotcom.wordpress.com

    Therefore I'm suggesting to redirect the djrolandlopez.com domain from djrolandlopezdotcom.wordpress.com to djrolandlopez.wordpress.com.

    Looking forward to your reply.

  9. Ah yes, ok! Also is there a way to keep my domain as
    DJRolandLopez.com ?

  10. Yes, now your primary is DJRolandLopez.com. You can access your dashboard through this link.

  11. Thank you Kardotim for ALL your help, MUCH appreciated :)
    I would like to know though, why the prefix www is unavailable? Is it because I have registered my domain on non-secure server and need to purchase security? Also, I would like to upload my own custom designed page and would like the WordPress logo to be removed beside my domain so it looks like my own personal webpage. How do I go about doing so?

    Many thanks!

  12. www is antique old web - no way to have www on WordPress.COM - on the good side the redirect is seamless

  13. so, I would like to upload my own custom designed page

    I'm sorry, but themes can't be uploaded to WordPress.com. That's a feature of self-hosted blogs through WordPress.org.

    You may use any of the available themes we have under Appearance > Themes in your dashboard, and you may want to look into purchasing the Custom Design Upgrade to customize one of the themes we offer.

    and would like the WordPress logo to be removed beside my domain so it looks like my own personal webpage.

    You can follow the steps in this guide on how to change your Favicon/blavatar: http://en.support.wordpress.com/avatars/blavatars/

  14. Ah! Nice one :) Thank you! So there is no need of the www, great!

    As for themes, I believe if I purchase a premium, can I then tweak it to suit my needs?

  15. Yes, but every premium theme has it's own features. You can browse all themes at http://themes.wordpress.com .

    Feel free to contact us if you have any other questions.

  16. Thanks a lot Kardotim! Much appreciated!
