    I have an existing website hosted on a private server for which I purchased the following domain – http://www.mcalhaney.com. I then setup a wordpress blog and in the cpanel on the other server set http://www.mcalhaney.com to redirect to my wordpress blog. I decided to cut out the middle man and go only with wordpress so I upgraded to the Domain Mapping feature for $13. I am something of a novice, but I thought that this meant that my wordpress site would be accessible via http://www.mcalhaney.com and mcalhaney.wordpress.com. This does not seem to be the case – http://www.mcalhaney.com is going to my old site on the old server and mcalhaney.wordpress.com does not work at all.

    Help!

    Thanks,

    Tim
    Blog url: http://mcalhaney.wordpress.com/

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

    Your domain’s name servers are still not pointed to us.

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

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

    Looks like the changes I made at web.com have taken effect. I do have one follow-up question, though. Should I be seeing http://www.mcalhaney.com or mcalhaney.wordpress.com in the address field? I’m seeing latter. Since I’ve applied my domain name to the blog, I thought it would somehow shift to actually showing the domain name. Am I missing something?

    Thanks,

    Tim

    Never mind . . . I just figured it out! :-)

    Relieved to have this transition behind me. Now I just hope and pray that my switch to Google App email works!
