DNS problems

    I’ve just bought my domain (.com), however, the site now appears squashed in the .com and I received a message concerning DNS, it said the DNS was not valid and gave me examples NS2.WORDPRESS.COM and NS1.WORDPRESS.COM , which I tried typing in the box provided, but it was invalid too.
    I am not very tech savvy and have reverted back to .wordpress.com as my primary. What should I do?

    I am seeing pulpmetalmagazine.com point correctly to your WordPress.com site.

    It can take 24-48 hours for domain/DNS changes to propagate throughout the internet. It typically happens faster than that, but it really depends on your ISPs update frequency. If you are still not seeing the correct site appear after 48 hours has elapsed, please contact me again.

    Also, pulpmetalmagazine.com was not set as your WordPress.com site’s primary domain. I have switched that for you and the URL should now display correctly. For future reference, you can change or update your primary domain by logging into your WordPress.com site’s dashboard and going to Store–>Domains.

    Please let me know if you have further questions or if anything is unclear.

    i have the same problems but wordpress says its already pointing to a wordpress blog.

    I need help with lifeincmykblog.wordpress.com

    i bought lifeincmyk.co.uk from names.co.uk

    So frustrating, don’t really know what im doing.

    Should the ns1,ns2 and ns3 be the only entries on my names.co.uk site?
