Domain Trouble

    My current url is http://www.straygoosestudio.wordpress.com

    I recently purchased libbyferrara.com and I have followed the directions below for applying this domain to my blog.

    Q: I own domain.com, can I map that to my wordpress.com blog?
    A: Yes! Here is what you need to do: Go to your domain registrar and change the nameservers to the following, being sure to remove any existing nameservers that may be there:

    ns1.wordpress.com
    ns2.wordpress.com
    ns3.wordpress.com

    If your registrar needs the IP addresses:

    72.232.101.25
    76.74.159.137
    64.34.177.159

    Then you need to wait. DNS propagation could take up to 72 hours - though it is frequently less.Go to http://dnsstuff.com. At the bottom of the page there is a WHOIS Lookup box - enter your domain name. If it says our nameservers, you can proceed here. If it does not you need to wait some more until it does. Once updated, go to your blog click Settings > Domains. Put your domain name in the box, click ‘Add domain to blog’.

    Everything works fine until this point:

    Your domain should then appear as a choice below that button. Next to the domain name it will say “Put blog here”. Click that.

    When I enter the domain name and hit enter I get an offer to buy this domain for 10 points, even though the correct name servers appear in WHOIS. I don’t know why it is not working.
    Can anyone help?

  2. Ah, but it is working. The 10 credits are what it costs to map your domain here. Domain mapping isn't free.
