Site redirect for existing domain mapping

  1. Hi, I recently moved my blog to a self hosted wordpress.org site, and wanted to purchase the site redirect so the traffic from my wordpress.com blog goes to my new site.

    When I go to the wordpress.com store to purchase the site redirect, I get the message: "A domain mapping already exists for that host. You do not need to buy a site redirect if you already have a domain mapping." (I purchased domain mapping a year ago).

    How do I get my wordpress blog to redirect to my new url?
    the new url is: http://whollykao.com

    thank you!
    Blog url: http://whollykao.wordpress.com/

  2. Hi there,
    As you’ve registered your domain through WordPress.com and now want it to point to a blog or website hosted elsewhere you can do this by updating the nameservers. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/domain-management/#update-nameservers

  3. I updated my nameservers to point to the new site, but the process took a bit longer than I thought it would, which is why the traffic wasn't redirecting. I'm all set now.

    Thanks for the suggestion though!

  4. Hello,

    I have the same issue, except that I did *not* register my domain using WordPress. How can I get the Site Redirect (and cancel the Domain Mapping) if it's giving me this same error:

    "A domain mapping already exists for that host. You do not need to buy a site redirect if you already have a domain mapping."

    Thanks for your help!
