    Hello. I have the domain name ‘www.honeysiclestudios.com’ registered via GoDaddy. I tried to change my domain name servers at GoDaddy to point that domain to my blog on WordPress, but I haven’t been able to make it work (it’s been about 24 hours since I changed the GoDaddy settings).

    Can you help? Thanks! Charles

    Hi, it appears that you forwarded the domain name to ns1.wordpress.com instead of updating the nameserver values. Domain forwarding and nameservers are two separate parts of a domain’s records.

    GoDaddy has information about how to change nameservers in their support docs. If you get stuck on anything specific there GoDaddy’s support should be able to help you sort it all out.

    Thanks, Andrew. I have been scratching my head over at GoDaddy, trying to figure out their process. I’m not a tech idiot, really, but I cannot sort out how to do this. I’ve entered a support ticket at GoDaddy. Wish me luck!

    Thanks again.

    Hey there.

    I was able to get the domain name forwarded, although only WITHOUT the www. prefix. So, honeysiclestudios.com does forward to my WordPress blog.

    However, http://www.honeysiclestudios.com still goes to my old blog.

    How can I fix this?

    Thanks for all your help!

    http://www.honeysiclestudios.com/ seems to be working now for me.

    Perhaps you’re all set now? :-)
