Nothing works, $99 in the drain?

  1. Hello,

    Today I just purchased the WordPress value package. I previously had a website http://www.mahamoda.com hosted on a different service. I paid the extra money to have WordPress "map" the old domain.

    I deleted the contents of the old website.

    I want to start a brand new blog/website for my business.

    I picked a theme, etc.. But no matter what I do after I activate a theme, my browser (whose cache I have cleared) just gives me the 404 error.

    I really don't know what to do. I thought this was suppose to be simple?

    Can someone please help?

  2. You seem to have two problems - it can take 24 to 72 hours for changes to migrate to the far corners of the internet - you just mapped your domain name - the bigger issue is that you don't seem to have your name servers pointing to WordPress.COM. See below for more info:

  3. Thanks for the info. I changed the namesaver, but still nothing has changed. Maybe it will take 24 hours?

  5. Usually changes start after a few hours - it looks like you have everything set correctly - due to caching issues you will be the last one to see the changes -
