I recently imported my blogspot blog to wordpress. I had a custom domain on blogger and I thought to use my custom domain or wordpress I would have to get rid of the custom domain on blogger so I deleted it from the blogger dashboard. I have purchased the new domain on wordpress and now it is telling me I need to update the DNS. However, I do not understand how to do that. At first my page http://www.knottygirltimestwo.com was giving me a 404 error and now it is just saying that my browser can not connect to server. I really need someone to walk me through how to do this.
Blog url: http://knottygirltimestwo.wordpress.com/
The blog I need help with is knottygirltimestwo.wordpress.com.
Howdy, I’ll be glad to help you sort it out. It looks like your domain knottygirltimestwo.com is registered with Enom, according to the public whois information. Do you still own that domain? If you do, you’ll need to log into your registrar and update the nameservers to ns1.wordpress.com, ns2.wordpress.com, ns3.wordpress.com, so that your domain mapping works properly. You can find more information about updating your nameservers here.
Yes I still own that domain and I went to update it and its still not coming up.
Is it possible if you can do it for me?
Okay, I purchased the domain through blogger but I don’t have an eNom account so how would I know if I still own the domain?
According to eNom, your domain is registered through Google/Blogger. eNom is just a domain reseller service.
Currently, you’re only directing the domain to ns3.wordpress.com.
Per the guide at http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/ the nameservers need to be set to:
NS1.WORDPRESS.COM NS2.WORDPRESS.COM NS3.WORDPRESS.COM
