Mapping .fr domain from Gandi to WordPress.com

  1. Hi,

    I've been struggling since yesterday to map a new .fr domain that I bought from Gandi.net to my WordPress.com address. I changed the DNS Server names to the 3 servers for wordpress.com as instructed by both support sites but it does not work. The error message asked me to check:
    http://www.afnic.fr/fr/produits-et-services/services/zonecheck/, which I did and there was an error: Impossible to find SOA registration for this domain.

    Does anyone know whether a .fr domain could or not be mapped to a wordpress.com address?
    Or else what could be the issue?

    Many thanks.
    Lisa

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

  2. Staff will have to create a zone record for you, and I see that someone has already tagged this thread for Staff attention, so hang in there.

  3. Can you please tell us exactly what the domain name is?

    I also have the same problem (registar: Gandi & .fr domain). Do you think it can be a few days issue ? Or will it be more a 3 months issue ?

  5. Can you please tell us exactly what the domain name is?

  7. Thanks - this has been flagged for staff attention

  8. I have manually added a zone record for your domain.

    You should now be able to map it here following this guide: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/

  9. Hello,

    I am having the same problem and when I use the support form there is no button to click to send you a support note. Our site is down as I thought it would happen automatically when I changed the nameservers and it didn't. I also had the error Impossible to find SOA registration for this domain.

    My domain is http://www.chevalislandaisaei.fr and it is for my club, I need to get the site up asap and I just don't know how to contact anyone. Thanks in advance.

  10. I have flagged this for staff attention.

    The Contact Support form was closed over the weekend as the staff tried to work off a backlog of requests and improve how WordPress.COM works for you.

  12. Thanks for that. I am actually migrating a wordpress.org blog over to .com so I'm pleased that you could respond so quickly. Support is one of the main reasons I wanted to move to .com so thanks a lot. I'll try to make it work now!

  13. You're welcome!
