Help! Trying to publish a new site with same URL.

  1. I'm trying to publish a newly designed site using Dreamweaver instead of wordpress.com.
    I already added the domain name derekpearsonproductions.com to my wordpress site. Then I bought hosting from GoDaddy.com and thought that any uploads I made would overwrite the wordpress site. It didn't work...

    So I tried deleting the domain name and now the error "Warning! Domain mapping upgrade for this domain not found. Please log in and go to the Domains Upgrades page of your blog to use this domain." comes up when I go to the URL. I still cannot upload anything from Dreamweaver. HELP!

    The blog I need help with is derekpearsonproductions.wordpress.com.

  2. You need to point the name servers to Godaddy if you want to host there. You can't have two sites with the same domain name. You also need to make sure your hosting at Godaddy is set up to catch your domain name.

    This forum is only to help with sites hosted on WordPress.COM. Don't know where you can get help with a Dreamweaver site.

  3. the host at Godaddy is setup with that URL address. My problem is that wordpress.COM won't let go of my URL so that I can use it with another host and designing program.

    so my problem is with wordpress.COM not Godaddy.com. That's why I ask the question on this forum...

  4. You have to update the nameservers in your domain management here and point it at godaddy (they should have given you the nameservers to use). It will take up to 72 hours for the nameserver change propagation to take place. How soon you will see your new site under the domain name is entirely dependent on how often your ISP updates their nameserver caches. Some do it frequently, and some do not.
