DNS change

  1. itsyummymummyblog

    I am trying to map an existing domain to itsyummymummyblog.wordpress.com/

    The DNS records at the existing hosting company have been updated (24 hours ago) and when I go to the site in my browser, I am getting to wordpress.com (itsyummymummy.com).

    HOWEVER, when I am going to domain / store / upgrade in wordpress, it's still saying that it resolves to the old DNS so i cannot do the upgrade. Any ideas??

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

    The DNS was updated in Denmark, I am in the UK. Could there be an even longer delay to get to the wordpress.com servers?

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Site goes to wordpress.com but when I try to buy the domain upgrade it still says it's the old one.com servers?

    When a new domain is purchased or when name servers are updated, it can take some time for the change to take full effect (up to 72 hours, but normally much less). http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/#instructions-for-mapping-an-existing-domain

    Thanks for this. So it IS resolving to WordPress (72.233.69.14), However the domain upgrade page in the WordPress store does not see this. Anyone have any idea who can help with this now?

    It has been almost 1 week

    anyone?
    old site is going to WP, but I cannot map on the WP side. It's really frustrating.

    Thank you!

  9. Your nameservers are not pointed here: http://www.whatsmydns.net/#NS/itsyummymummy.com

    Per the guide at http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/ they need to be:

    NS1.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS2.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS3.WORDPRESS.COM
