How do I finish my domain transfer?

  1. Right now in wordpress, I have ns1.wordpress.com and ns2.wordpress.com I also have ns1.dreamhost.com and 2 and three. I uploaded my website on my new domain and it works. But for some reason, it is randomly using the wordpress website and randomly using the website I uploaded. Should I delete the wordpress servers?

    The blog I need help with is youthconferencecalifornia.com.

  3. Hi there,

    The nameservers (for example, ns1.wordpress.com or ns1.dreamhost.com) tell your domain where to find your site. When you have the nameservers for both WordPress.com and DreamHost for your domain, it will randomly pick between those two hosts when you visit your domain.

    If you only want your domain to point to your self-hosted site at DreamHost, you should deleted the WordPress.com nameservers. It can take about 48-72 hours for changes like that to take effect across the internet, but that will fix the issue for you.

    We have a guide for changing the nameservers for domains registered here at WordPress.com on this page: Change Name Servers

    Please let me know if I can provide any further help with this. :)
