Domain and Hosting HELP ME :(
I just bought $25 domain which is lose-weight-tips.me now I have problems connecting it to my wordpress site. Do I have to buy hosting as well? well this is complicated :(
The blog I need help with is lose-weight-tips.me.
I am in Canada and I have no trouble at all connecting to http://lose-weight-tips.me/
The 404 (page not found) error message on the front page of the blog appeared because the Admin of the blog deleted the placeholder Hello World post. http://en.support.wordpress.com/not-found/ As soon as you publish a post, not a page it will disappear. Read the differences between Pages and Posts.
After you make a domain mapping purchase here > Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades and do the primary blog set up it can take between 24 – 72 hours for domain name propagation to take place throughout the internet. You can view the DNS changes here > http://www.whatsmydns.net/ What’s important during that stage is to be patient.
You must be logged in under the exact same username account that registered the blog , who is the Admin of the blog and who purchased the upgrade for the blog to access it.
Clicking this link should display all your blogs registered under the same username, including the hidden ones: https://dashboard.wordpress.com/wp-admin/index.php?page=my-blogs&show=hidden
If you do not see the blog here http://en.support.wordpress.com/my-blogs/ then
