    My blog address was originally http://catharynlee.wordpress.com. I bought a domain today, http://nothingelegant.com. But now both links don’t work or load. Do I just have to wait? I’ve already waited for over an hour.

    When I go to “My Blogs” on Dashboard, it still says catharynlee.wordpress.com is my address and “primary” is checked, but then when I go to “My Domains,” it says that the primary domain for my blog is nothingelegant.com and all other URLs will lead to that one.

    Please help, I’m so confused!

    The blog I need help with is nothingelegant.com.

    I’m in Canada an the URL redirect works for me already. 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 and to know that the last ISP to flush their DNS caches is likely to be your own ISP.

    Awesome, thank you so much! I’m in Italy at the moment, maybe that’s why.

    An hour is not long enough to wait. I posted the link above that you can use to watch the DNS change progress take place. You’re welcome.
