web address or domain(?)

  1. First time here!
    I want to change my blog's web address to
    http://bellapriscilla.com (instead of wordpress.com in it).
    I did so in the setting, but it doesn't open the site when I copy and past http://bellapriscilla.com.
    It still does open with http://bellapriscilla.wordpress.com.
    How can I adjust the change?

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

  2. In order to map to a domain one must have an underlying .wordpress.com subdomain blog to map from http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/ and the domain name you desire must be available for purchase, or you must already own the domain URL.

    After you have registered a .wordpress.com blog you log in as Admin under the exact same username account that registered the blog and purchase a domain name by purchasing an annually renewable domain mapping upgrade for the blog from the blog's dashboard at > Store > My Upgrades.

    See here if you do not own a domain http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/

    See here for mapping an existing domain that you already own http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/

    Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades is where you do the primary blog set up knowing it can take between 24 - 72 hours for domain name propagation to take place throughout the internet. You can view the DNS changes here > http://www.whatsmydns.net/ What's important during that stage is to be patient.

  3. P.S. There is no domain mapping upgrade for bellapriscilla.com. If you would like to use this domain you will first need to set up domain mapping by doing what I posted above.

  4. Thanks!!!
