Not able to transfer domain

  1. Hi,
    I'm moving my domain tovajertfelt.com to squarespace and I've followed the instructions and changed the A and DNS.
    However, the magical 72 hours have passed and everything is still linked to tovajertfelt.wordpress.com, and on sqsp's side they say it's still not linked.

    I've doublechecked my domain:
    "A tovajertfelt.com points to 198.185.159.135
    CNAME http://www.tovajertfelt.com alias of ext.squarespace.com."
    The only thing bothering me here is the "." on the end of the alias of, as it comes magically up without me writing it. Does this explain why it can't be transferred and if so, what can I do to help it?

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

  2. How about changing the domain servers? Have you checked that? How long have you had your domain? WordPress won't let you transfer for the first 60 days. And whose instructions did you follow? The official SquareSpace (http://help.squarespace.com/guides/mapping-a-domain-general-instructions) or some third-party guide?

  3. Also, did you check to make sure your domain was unlocked?

  4. Hi,
    I followed the Squarespace guide. I have changed the domain server (I think? How can you control that?) I've had wordpress for 41 months..
    Also.. unlocked? Yes, it should be although not sure how to double-check it.

  5. Hi again,
    So: I've accepted the transfer under "edit domain/transfer" and since before the CNAME and A is pointing to squarespace. However nothing is happening. Also no confirmation email has been emailed to my stated email.
    What is going on?
