Registered a domain through wordpress but its not mapping to my blog?

  1. Hi all. I bought a domain through wordpress 24 Hours ago, but when i go to the url that i bought it doesnt work.

    When I go to Store>Upgrades, It says its active but "DNS needs to be updated" .When I click on that it shows Im on step 2 "Configure your domain". Then I hit "try adding my domain to your blog again" n it says "We checked the nameservers and it looks like they’re not pointing to WordPress.com yet. If you recently updated them please check again soon. It can take a few hours for registrars to complete update their nameservers."

    I dont know how to do this since I bought the domain through wordpress?

    Then I went to google apps to see if I could setup a email and it says " is available for purchase.
    This domain name doesn't exist yet. You may use this domain for your Google Apps account by purchasing it from Google. Get Started »"

    Which means it shows still available?

    Any help?

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

  2. What is the domain name you are having trouble getting to work?

  3. theflyingbandit.com

  4. It looks like your domain mapping is active but the domain name registration failed - I have flagged this for the staff to help you -

  5. Thank you very much!

  6. You be welcome & good luck -

    the staff have a good record sorting these things out - for some reason domain name registrations fail once in a while

  7. Thanks!

  8. The registration for theflyingbandit.com failed, so I have added $26 in credit to your account.

    Please feel free to try again by adding the domain via Store -> Domains in your blog's Dashboard.
