    Im trying to change my web host to ning.com and i also want to keep my wordpress domain name, but when i try to use the domain mapping feature to update my nameservers my domain doesnt show up in pending transations. I figured i had to initiate it with ning so i tried to set up the domain mapping from there but they give me an error message saying “There were some problems with your domains
    Your A record for crowdblend.com points to 76.74.254.120, but it should point to 208.82.16.68.”. Ning says the problem is with wordpress, I dont know what this means ive tried everything to get it to work ive unlocked my dns ive already gotten the authorization code i even read the wordpress instructions to domain mapping. Is it something wrong with my ip address or is it because i dont know what to put in the nameserver box in domain management? any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The blog I need help with is crowdblend.com.

    Are you using these instructions?

    The name server info should come from your new host. something that looks something like ( ns1.your-host.com )

    You are talking about two different things –

    You have domain mapping active for your domain name – you can change the name servers to point to your new host – and the registration remains here – this is not domain mapping.

    If you want to transfer the domain name to ning then they need to be a registrar that can accept domain transfers (WordPress.COM for instance can register a domain name but can’t accept an existing name into it’s system) – if you are transferring your domain name to ning the transfer needs to be started on their end.
