Complete novice... or idiot!

  1. Hi

    I'm a complete novice at all this, basically I have purchased my domain at 123 reg and want to use WordPress.

    I sort of need a step by step process of where I go/what I do from here


    The blog I need help with is

  2. Do you have an existing WordPress.COM blog you want to use the new domain name on? If so we need the URL to give you accurate help

    In case you DO have a blog here you want domain mapping:

    $ 13.- / year

    It looks like you have domain mapping but the name servers seem to be set wrong - pay attention to the setting name servers above

  3. I have no idea where to enter these on 123reg

  4. Then contact 123reg support to get help on changing the name servers.

    Also look for a FAQ, changing name servers is common at registrars so the how to should be easy to find

  5. Ok, I've finally figured it out, yet the site still doesn't seem to be loading

  6. Domain helper shows you have set things up correctly

    It takes 24 to 72 hours for changes to reach the far corners of the internet. During that time access to your blog will be erratic. Changes usually start after a few hours

    You will be the last on the see the changes - Try clearing your browser cache & forcing a page reload

  7. Thank you :D

  8. You be welcome
