I recently registered a new wordpress blog and domain, however something appears to have failed with the tregistration process. Instead of the domain being mapped, I now get an error message saying that the domain has tried to be registered but is not pointing to the blog. I registered the domain with the new blog, hence the blog name, eyeswideopendotnet.wordpress.
When I signed up, it said eyeswideopen.net was available, so I ordered it. Yet I was taken to the domain page where it said the the domain was not pointing to the blog. I couldn’t follow the tips, because I registered the domain through wordpress, not a 3rd party. It appears something went wrong with the registration process and now it is stuck.
It seems that this domain name already has been registered by somebody else since 2004. Thought it has a ‘pending delete’ status, which means that it might become available between now and 80 days. Otherwise I’m afraid you have to choose a different domain name.
You can go to Upgrades > Domains on your blog’s dashboard and follow the steps there.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
