    Hi,

    Just purchased the domain mapping, and it says DNS need to be updated. I went to point the name server to what its told me to, but its still not updating. What else can I do? or how long should I wait until the DNS gets updated?
    thanks.

    The blog I need help with is walkwithstyle.com.au.

    There is no domain mapping upgrade for walkwithstyle.com.au. If you would like to use this domain you will first need to set up domain mapping. I added the zone record.

    In order to map to a domain one must have an underlying .wordpress.com subdomain blog to map from. If you have registered a .wordpress.com blog you log in as Admin under the exact same username account that registered the blog and purchase a domain name by purchasing an annually renewable domain mapping upgrade for the blog.

    See here for mapping an existing domain that you already own http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/

    Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades is where you do the primary blog set up knowing 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.
