My domain nameservers go back to wordpress.com every hour...?

  1. Hello,

    I bought my domain name through wordpress.com,

    but now I want to host my wordpress in a private server, so I installed wordpress script there (wordpress.org).

    I went to my domain settings and set nameservers to my private hosting.
    After an hour or so, it was working great, my domain was pointing to my server, however suddently it's pointing to the wordpress.com blog I originally started.

    Nameservers still show my hosting, if I update the nameservers again, it works again.. but then after an hour or so, it goes back to wordpress.com again.

    How to fix this?

    I want to use my domain in my private hosting.

    Please help

    The blog I need help with is atletasconcausa.com.

  2. You do know DNS can take several hours, even a few days, to settle down? Don't change anything, just wait for it to settle out.

  3. why is it working for a few mins and then its pointing back to wordpress.com ???

  4. It can take 24 to 72 hours for changes to reach the far corners of the internet - each time you visit a web site you go a different route so you might go through a router that is not updated - then add caching by your local ISP and it can take a while to settle down

  5. Set your name servers back to WordPress.COM then take a long long walk and don't touch anything
