ns1.wordpress.com is "Invalid dns-server" when mapping existing domain

  1. Hi All,

    I am trying to map and existing domain (http://hoettingeralm.at) to http://hoettingeralm.wordpress.com and I am following these instructions http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/

    On trying to change the name servers at my domain registrar to:
    NS1.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS2.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS3.WORDPRESS.COM

    I always get the error:
    "Invalid dns-server. Either the server does not exist or it is not correctly configured."

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Tim

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

  5. Hi Timethief,

    Apologies - did not realise there was a JavaScript Obfuscation on the original page (do not get any warning myself). Anyway - hence the reason for wanting to re-map the domain to wordpress.com.

    If I could edit the original post to remove the link I would... (sadly I cannot see any edit function?)

  6. We have kids posting here and the edit function was removed years ago as it was abused. Only Staff and Moderators can edit, delete or close threads. Not to worry as they will take care of it when they enter this thread. It also appears that as you have a .at domain your will need a zone record which only Staff can provide.

  7. Thanks Timethief.

  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. Thanks Macmanx. Working now.

  10. You can go into the original post and mark it Resolved.

  11. You're welcome!

  12. Have the same problem with naturasia.pl and naturasia.wordpress.com - contacting WordPress support did not work. Please help by adding zone record.
