    Hello
    I want to change bartolinibrands.wordpress.com to bartolinibrands.com. How do I do this? what is the cost?

    Also, I have business cards printed with bartolinibrands.wordpress.com and dont want to lose the site for now as it has content. Not sure if the site will disappear if I change it to .com

    Thank you

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

    The content stays exactly where it is now and nothing changes except the URL. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/#important-notes-before-upgrading

    For domain mapping instructions see here please http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/

    After you make the domain mapping purchase here > Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades and do the set up 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.

    Hi @timethief, I need some help too, please…
    I did all the process for my blog mensalco.wordpress.com, I bought the domain http://www.mensalco.cl, I paid the mapping at wordpress.com and 6 days ago I changed the DNS on my registrar, but it showed me and error message: “IP address is missing for the server NS1.wordpress.com”. (same with NS2 and NS3)

    What am I doing wrong?
    Thank you!!

    Although mensalco.cl has been registered, it is not using WordPress.com nameservers. If your domain is mapped to a self-hosted site, then your configuration may be fine as currently set up. If you wish to host your site at WordPress.com, you will need to update your nameservers as outlined below. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/#instructions-for-mapping-an-existing-domain

    mensalco.cl,

    Probably will require a zone record – this thread has already been flagged for the staff to help – they can add a zone record for you if you want to host here at WordPress.COM

    And what should I do or need to host at wordpress.com?
    I thought my site was already host there.
    I’m a little confused… sorry…

    @mensalcoweb – you are asking questions typical of someone that wants to domain map mensalco.cl, to your blog here – mensalco.wordpress.com/ – most of the time zone records are needed to make the domain mapping work for a .cl domain

    ok, thanks @auxclass.
    So I’ll wait for the staff to add a zone record for my site.

    Thank you both for your help!

    Hi @mensalcoweb,

    A zone record has been added for mensalco.cl. Remember that it can take up to a full 72 hours for propagation to occur for any changes involving DNS, so make sure that if it doesn’t work immediately that you give it enough time to propagate to you!

    Thanks @amightywp. I’ll wait for a couple of days and check again.
    Should I change the primary domain now or in 2 more days?

    Thank you!

    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

    Let us know if you have any questions!

    Hi @kardotim, I did it and there’s an error message that says:

    Se han encontrado los siguientes errores:

    Falta dirección IP para servidor ‘NS1.WORDPRESS.COM’
    Falta dirección IP para servidor ‘NS2.WORDPRESS.COM’
    Falta dirección IP para servidor ‘NS3.WORDPRESS.COM’

    In english:
    There are the following errors:
    IP address is missing for server ‘NS1.WORDPRESS.COM’, etc…

    What IP address should I write?

    Thanks!

    Are you using the NS (name server) field to enter the NS1/NS2/NS3 addresses? Otherwise contact your domain registrar to help you set these records.

    Yes, there is a column for the name server, where I’m writting NS1, NS2 and NS3 and other column for IP address of each of them…

    Normally you could leave the IP address column empty. Otherwise feel free to try one of these addresses:

    72.233.2.58
    72.233.69.6
    76.74.254.120
    76.74.254.123
    66.155.9.238
    66.155.11.238

    It worked! Now I’ll wait for 72 hours and see what happens.

    Thank you so much for your fast reply!

    I took a look and everything is working properly. If you’d like can set the domain as primary address at https://mensalco.wordpress.com/wp-admin/paid-upgrades.php?page=domains
