    Hey all..
    ok, so i’m completely new to blogging, website making etc (tough times i know!!). I brought a domain and hosting name ‘www.gypseedreamz.com’ through ‘only domains’ website…before i even set it up properly but i would like to update it as i go along as well as it being published!! I’m now registered with wordpress and wondering if it’s possible to change the url from gypseedreamz.wordpress to gypseedreamz.com and play around with it through wordpress…if this makes sense?!
    HELP ;)
    Thanks

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

    Just follow these instructions:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/

    That gets your custom domain name mapped here $ 13.– / year

    Thanks :)
    I just paid the $13 but now its asking for DNS! I went on ‘only domains’ who i registered gypseedreamz.com with and clicked on edit and selected ‘Setup/Edit Web Redirection’ and typed my wordpress web address…
    I can’t seem to find any DNS to enter to validate??

    Don’t do DNS – read the instructions again – pay attention to the part about changing the name servers – you need to change the name servers – that is done at your registrar – then once everything is correct it takes from 24 to 72 hours for changes to reach the far corners of the internet – changes will usually start in a few hours

    Hijacking a thread will not get much help and confuses things
