    Hello,

    I’m very new to getting my site hosted and uploading files to wordpress so I’m lacking basic knowledge on how to run a website overall.

    I have a few questions regarding my domain. First, I attempted to transfer my domain from weebly to godaddy, which is ethamavong.com, to host and map my domain on wordpress. When I published a post to test it out, it states on the site “If you are the owner of the site, you can fix this message by publishing your site to this address.” I have already closed my account with weebly. How do I go around this?

    Thank you,

    Emily Thamavong

    The blog I need help with is ethamavong.com.

    Your name servers are not yet pointed to us.

    Per the guide at http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/ they need to be set to:

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

    @carplu – the name servers need to be changed where your domain name is registered – you probably also need a zone record added for your name if your domain name is caroleplumel.fr

    I have flagged this for staff attention

    ethamavong, you’re welcome!

    carplu, what is the domain name that you’re trying to map?

    I think i already added the zone record. But cannot find where my domain name is registered in order to change the nameservers.
    Macmanx : my domain name is caroleplumel.fr

    carplu, your registrar is whomever you paid to register the domain with.

    Apparently, caroleplumel.fr has never been registered. You’ll need to either register it first with a registrar that provides .fr domains, or register a .com, .org, .net, or .me domain with us.
