    Hi there,

    Looks like your domain is not pointing to WordPress.com name servers yet:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-helper/?host=ruralurbain.fr

    Please go to your domain registrar’s site and log into the control panel. You will need to update the name servers as below:

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

    For more information, please visit the help documentation provided by the registrar and our support page:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/

    Let us know if you have any questions!

    Hi Zandyring,
    Thank you for your fast respond.
    I can not update server because i created the blog directly under wordpress interface (www.wordpress.com). It is originally called tgroedem.wordpress.com.
    And when i try to go to Dashboard > Domain > Modify DNS > copy paste
    “NS1.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS2.WORDPRESS.COM
    NS3.WORDPRESS.COM”
    it says, it is no valid….
    Thanks for your feed back…

    Who did you register the ruralurbain.fr name with?
    You need to set the nameservers to ns1.wordpress.com…. with the registrar.

    I registered it in the wordpress backoffice!!!
    1) i create a blog on http://www.wordpress.com
    2) i went to “tgroedem.wordpress.com/wp-admin > shop > buy domain name > i paid 13 dollars for for 1 year for ruralurbain.fr !
    I checked on the support and they said it was that easy, no need to set name servers etc…

    tgveil – did you buy the domain through wordpress or the domain mapping ? There are two things you need. the mapping is $13. the actual domain name is a further cost.

    Although I am also having similar problems – my blog is totally inaccessible and it does seem that there is a problem. But since wordpress run the DNS I’m a bit stuffed.

    If any admin come past burtonleonard.org.uk doesnt seem to be available.

    Your $ 13. is for domain mapping only – your name ruralurbain.fr CAN’T be registered at WordPress.COM (they can’t register a .fr name – they can map it to your blog here) – I did a whois and I am not sure that ruralurbain.fr has been registered – you need to register the domain name with a Registrar that will accept a .fr name.

    @bhodisafa & @markbl – –

    we need the domain name you want to register or map and the base WordPress.COM blog you are trying to map the domain name to before anyone can give you accurate help

    Ok, i didn’t know that .fr is not supported via wordpress.com. So if i understand clear, if i go, for example, on ovh.com and buy the domain name ruralurbain.fr, the site will be redirected on my “wordpress site”?

    Other question, if i buy ruralurbain.com on the wordpress interface, then it will be directly redirected to my wordpress site?

    As long as you make sure that the nameservers are set to NS1.WORDPRESS.COM etc. in the ovh.com settings

    If you buy ruralurbain.com from wordpress, then you’ll need to get the mapping changed by wordpress.com

    @tgveil,

    That is correct; you can purchase domains that end in the .fr extension elsewhere and then map them to your WordPress.com blog. You can also purchase the .com domain through your existing WordPress.com blog and it will automatically map when you agree to the charge – you won’t have to update your nameservers!

    @markbl,

    I see your WordPress.com site when I visit burtonleonard.org.uk. If you’re not able to see it, you may need to clear your cache:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/

    Let me know if you’re still having issues after clearing the cache!

    @bhodisafa,

    I am able to see your site at http://guardianofcanarius.com/ (your underlying WordPress URL is guardianofcanarius.wordpress.com, btw – the .wordpress.com part is always after the part you specified!)

    It can take up to 72 hours for the domain to propagate across the web, so you may have been caught in that window.

    Cheers!

    Why would I get a redirect to that website above.
    http://guardianofcenarius.com/

    Redirects me to https://ssl0.ovh.net/fr/

    I am also having the same problem my wordpress site is still not showing and I have sent two tickets to support and have had no reply.

    Easy space who I registrated my domain with have said that the nameserver dns has been re-directed so why is my wordpress site not live on the internet.

    Please can someone tell me what is going on ?
