Also look for a FAQ, changing name servers is common at registrars so the how to should be easy to find February 23, 2014 at 6:16 pm #1668937 bangyourfeetMember Ok, I’ve finally figured it out, yet the site still doesn’t seem to be loading February 23, 2014 at 6:22 pm #1668938 auxclassMember 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 February 23, 2014 at 6:23 pm #1668939 bangyourfeetMember Thank you :D February 23, 2014 at 6:29 pm #1668940 auxclassMember You be welcome Author Posts The topic ‘Complete novice… or idiot!’ is closed to new replies.
