    Bought a domain through WordPress because that’s supposed to be the easiest way of doing things, but it still wants the DNS to be changed. Could you please walk me through exactly what I need to do, considering I didn’t expect to have to do this?

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

    Hi Anji, what you purchased from us is a domain mapping. For the domain mapping to work, you need to have the domain name hampshirefeministcollective.co.uk to be registered elsewhere (you can’t have the domain itself to be registered via WordPress.com since we only register .com, .net, .org, .me domains at the moment).

    Right now, it looks like that domain name is not registered anywhere: http://whois.domaintools.com/hampshirefeministcollective.co.uk

    So you’d need to register that domain name with a service that sells .co.uk domains and then complete the mapping process as outlined here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/#instructions-for-mapping-an-existing-domain (steps 1 and 3 only, since you completed step 2) already.
