Why can't I map my domain to a different domain?

  1. I am trying to map my domain (www.ryanclements.com) to a different domain (www.toinpirewithin.com). I am having a bunch of problems doing it. When I go to the domain diagnostic tool it says I don't have mapping for ryanclements.com, but when I follow the mapping instructions they don't seem to work and when I add the domain to http://www.toinspirewithin.com it says that this domain is already registered with another wordpress site??

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Blog url: http://ryanclements.wordpress.com/

  2. This free hosted WordPress.com blog http://ryanclements.wordpress.com/ is bring domain mapped to http://toinspirewithin.com/

  3. Also note that DNS propagation can take up to 72 hours, though it's usually much less. I'd suggest waiting and if you're still encountering the issue after 72 hours then post into this thread again.

  4. Thank you

  5. You're welcome.

  6. Hi ryanclements,

    Thanks for posting about this, and I'm sorry for the inconvenience!

    I've gone ahead and fixed the domain mapping issue from our end so it'll point to http://ryanclements.wordpress.com/ properly. (I've just tested it from my end, and it's good to go.)

    In Store -> Domains, you can choose your primary domain (which is what users will see when they visit your blog).

    I hope this helps! :-)
