What's Exact Step Of The $10 Domain Mapping -Subdomain Mapping

  1. I'm in need of maping http://techblog.targetlife.com to my blog http://targetlife.wordpress.com so i follow general steps (adding http://techblog.targetlife.com in wp-admin/options-general.php?page=domains of ma blog)i get error saying the error message is quoted bellow

    Credits

    Domain mapping is available for 10 credits per domain per year, registration not included. You have 0 credits. You will have to purchase additional credits via PayPal. Note that some forms of payment (eChecks) may take several days to process.

    Possible problem with targetlife.com

    We were unable to verify that techblog.targetlife.com is pointing to WordPress.com. If you own this domain, follow the directions below to get it ready for your blog. If you don’t own it, try a different name to see if something else is available. If the domain is available, you may be able to register it with another registrar and then map it to your blog.

    How to fix it

    You must make some changes to your domain before we can continue. (Sorry about the technical jargon!) The preferred method is to use the tools provided by your registrar to add a CNAME record. It should look like this:

    techblog 14400 IN CNAME targetlife.wordpress.com.

    Each registrar has its own method of adding CNAME records. The important parts of this record are your subdomain ("techblog") and your original blog domain ("targetlife.wordpress.com").

    (If you have already done this it may take several hours for the changes to be recognized here. Please try again in a little while.)

    But i've done the appropriate cname changes that it said..and now it's the 4th day after i did cname changes...but still it gives d same errors..i don't know is their any method to pay them $10 before doing this..i think since i've not paid $10 that may be a problem for d errors...but i don't see any buttons in my admin panel to pay $10 for domain mapping..pls help? and if there is any method to pay first..then get it done..

  2. It's the WEEKEND. Staff are not working. Contact them Monday. And yes, you have to pay before it works.

  3. And CLOSE YOUR TAGS! Sheesh!
