domain not showing up

    google domain is set up correctly but my domain is not showing up with my blog on wordpress.

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

  2. The level domain here is wordpress.com. All sites hosted here are on .wordpress.com sub domains like http://savingoneverythingcom.wordpress.com/ To use a custom domain requires an upgrade and it takes up to 72 hours for the domain URL to propagate throughout the internet after your purchase and the set up.

    What is the URL of the domain you refer to?

    How domain mapping works
    Registering an underlying .wordpress.com URL first is required for domain mapping. What domain mapping does is providing a seamless redirect to the very same content under the new domain URL when a person clicks the old URL .wordpress.com to the original content. It can take up to 72 hours for domain propagation to take place throughout the internet but it doesn't usually take that long. https://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/

    There are 3 ways to add a custom domain to your blog. Please note that an active WordPress.com plan is required to add a custom domain to your site. https://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/#getting-started

    WordPress.com does not accept domain transfers but mapping an existing domain is possible. http://support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/ The domain or mapping of any existing domain URL is included in the pricing for a personal upgrade, a premium and a business upgrade. The WordPress.COM upgrade for mapping a domain must be renewed annually.

    Please go to https://wordpress.com/pricing/ to upgrade.

  4. Hi savingoneverythingisbetter,

    google domain is set up correctly but my domain is not showing up with my blog on wordpress.

    An existing domain can be connected to your WordPress.com account with domain mapping:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/map-existing-domain/

    The process of mapping a domain is a two way connection. Although the name servers for your domain have already been pointed to WordPress.com, there is no domain mapping upgrade on your account at this end.

    Domain mapping is a feature of Personal, Premium and Business plans. Each plan includes a domain credit which can be used to map a domain you already own or register a new one. To upgrade, start by choosing a plan from this page:

    https://wordpress.com/plans

    Then add domain mapping for savingoneverything.com.

    Come back to me if you have any questions.
