    You need to change the name servers at your registrar – don’t do a redirect – see below for some more info

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/#instructions-for-mapping-an-existing-domain

    We require that your name server configuration include only the following servers or their numeric equivalents:

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

    Your name servers are as follows:

    NS1.NAMECITY.COM
    NS2.NAMECITY.COM

    Lets try this again since I was ignored yet the answer after mine was answered.

    When you type http://guardianofcenarius.com/

    it redirects to https://ssl0.ovh.net/fr/

    can you help me? its been 4 days and NO help. If you can not help let me know so I can get a refund.

    At this point I just want a refund and to be done with wordpress. Since email help is not working since I have sent multiple messages, maybe you can help.

    You seem to have a spelling issue with the domain names you are asking about – one is mapped correctly and the other has no domain mapping

    http://guardianofcenarius.com/ – goes to a strange page
    http://guardianofcanarius.com/ – loads to a WordPress.COM blog fine

    Did you try and purchase domain mapping for http://guardianofcenarius.com/? Were you charged for it?

    What do you see at Dashboard >> Store >> My Upgrades?

    Working it out in the store. I might just be an idiot. Maybe.

    Are you really working with two different domain names and maybe two different blogs also? – Note the cEn vs/ the cAn in the domain name – spelling errors are a common problem with domain names

    I’m sorted – I didn’t do anything (even clear cache) but things started working again.

    I’m happy.

    Ok, problem is solved from my side…
    I bought the domain name on ovh, and redirected on the registrar, the website works perfectly… Thanks for all the help…

    @bhodisafa,

    It looks like auxclass targeted your issue correctly: the domain I see associated with your account is guardianofcanarius.com.

    @nikkiattree,

    I see that the nameservers still need to updated on your domain. To do this, you’ll need to log into your domain registrar (easyspace) and update your nameservers to NS1.WORDPRESS.com, NS2.WORDPRESS.COM, and NS3.WORDPRESS.COM. They are sometimes called domain servers, if that’s any help.

    Once you take care of that, you should be all set!

    Cheers!

    Hi.

    I am trying to redirect my wordpress site http://www.bramijegan.wordpress.com to bramijegan.com and I am getting a msg saying I can’t do this. I am trying to do this by buying a redirection for $13 via the store.

    any thoughts please.
    Regards
    Brami

    Can you be clear which way you want the redirect to work?

    You want bramjegan.com to show your wordpress site or you want http://www.bramijegan.wordpress.com to go to your site bramijegan.com?

    For the first you need domain mapping, for the second you need domain forwarding.

    what exactly is the error message?

    Looking at things your wordpress.com site is currently marked private – that may be an issue.

    I need http://www.bramijegan.wordpress.com to point to bramijegan.com.

    I go to Redirect Your Site and then type bramijegan.com

    This is the message I get – A domain mapping already exists for that host. You do not need to buy a site redirect if you already have a domain mapping.

    But I don’t have that domain mapping – so not sure what that means.

    Hi Brami,

    On this page, I see that you DO have a domain mapping for bramijegan.com :

    https://bramijegan.wordpress.com/wp-admin/paid-upgrades.php?page=domains

    It is not yet active, however. If you activate it by selecting it and clicking on “Update Primary Domain”, then anyone who visits http://www.bramijegan.wordpress.com/ will be sent to the self-hosted site at bramijegan.com.

    That mapping expires on August 23rd, 2013 and will not be automatically renewed. You will need to go back to your dashboard if you continue to want your WordPress.com site to point to your self-hosted site.

    If you have any questions about this, please let me know!
