HELP!!! My blog is down!!! for the past 40 hours

  1. not sure what is going on but my blog has been down since last night. I am unable to see it at any computer (at home, work, at neighbors house, etc).
    What should I do?

    The blog I need help with is foodskop.com.

  2. That link doesn't work for me. Do you have a Somethingorother.wordpress.com address for the blog? Did you change the domain name recently>?

  3. foodskop.com the site linked to your username expired yesterday.

    http://www.networksolutions.com/whois-search/foodskop.com

  4. You need to get with your registrar, TUCOWS, INC., and renew the domain.

  5. Interesting this link shows the renewal good: http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/whois/?tool_id=66&token=&toolhandler_redirect=0&ip=foodskop.com

    But the question is unanswered from here: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/server-down-my-blog-is-missing

    Did you properly renew the Domain and Domain Mapping?

  6. I would double check with Tucows and then also check to see if your domain mapping here has expired.

  7. I am not sure if Tucows does retail registration. One of my sites is with Tucows but I have to send the money to my host for the renewal. Do you remember who you bought your domain from?

  8. The network solutions whois shows this:

    Registration Service Provider:
    (mt) Media Temple

    There are links, email addresses and also phone numbers which I did not post (no sense feeding spammers and trolls).

  9. I transfered my domain name: foodskop.com to bluehost yesterday. I assume that my website will show up again. I guess I wasn't informed that it was going to expire.

  10. I am not sure how long it takes to transfer to a new host?

  11. Again - is your Domain Mapping also current?

  12. how do I do this?

  13. It says that I don't have to renew my domain until May 25th , 2011 May 25, 2010 May 25, 2011 Edit DNS

  14. I don't know how long that will take, but once it makes the move, you will have to point that domain name back to wordpress.COM's servers. From the time you make that change, then it will be approximately 24 hours for that DNS change to propagate through the domain name servers on the internet. Once it is propagated the blog should reappear, if your domain mapping upgrade is paid up. Go to settings > domains in your dashboard to see.

    You will just have to be patient. This will probably take at least two days from start to finish, possibly three.

  15. my domain name is paid up so not sure what is going on. thanks for your help

  16. If the domain mapping here is NOT paid up, then it won't matter if the domain registration is paid or not because your domain name will NOT be mapped to your blog here.

    You have to go to settings > domain in your dashboard and make sure that domain mapping is current and paid up.

  17. yes this is current

  18. OK, then what you will have to do, after the transfer is complete, is to go to blue host and make sure the domain is pointed at the wordpress.com servers.

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

  19. Thank you! It works now!

  20. You're welcome, and glad you got it resolved.
