Map an existing domain not working

  1. I have jasminehortop.com set up with godaddy.com and the end I want to achieve is that my wordpress blog (which did show at jasminehortop.wordpress.com) shows up when jasminehortop.com is typed into the browser address window.

    I have paid $13 for to wordpress to Map an Existing Domain as shown at http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/ and followed the instructions but now neither address works!

    I have changed the name servers at godaddy to ns1.wordpress.com etc. Now, if I type jasminehortop.wordpress.com into a browser it now flips to jasminehortop.com and nothing shows.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks for any help!

    The blog I need help with is jasminehortop.com.

  2. Your link loads fine back to your base WordPress.COM site for me - http://jasminehortop.wordpress.com/ - it can take 24 to 72 hours for changes to reach the far corners of the internet - however changes usually start after a few hours - also because of caching issues you will be the last one to see the changes - you are under 72 hours

    You have not set a Primary Blog: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/#setting-the-primary-domain

    Change your Primary blog then relax
