Pointing Domain that I own to blog

  1. I've read all the instructions but this is just over my head. My domain is registered at Network Solutions and I changed the pointing as told to wordpress. However the rest of the instruction about what to do inside wordpress is jargon and it's over my head so I don't know what to do.
    Blog url: http://gardengate.wordpress.com/

  2. Hi there, I am sorry the instructions are confusing, I'll be glad to help. What is the domain name that you are looking to map to your WordPress.com blog?

    If you've updated the nameservers of your domain name to ns1.wordpress.com, ns2.wordpress.com, and ns3.wordpress.com, you are most of the way there. The next step would be to visit Store > Domains in your blog's dashboard (make sure it's the one where you want the domain mapped, if you have multiple blogs) and type in the name of the domain in the "Add a Domain" box. Then, follow the prompts to purchase the Domain Mapping upgrade for $13.

  3. Jenia... thanks a ton. I appears that your suggestions worked and I was finally able to get my url pointed properly. Sometime you just need a little nudge towards enlightenment ;->

  4. You are welcome :)
