    Hi there I have a website through MrSite and it has driven me a bit crazy so I have built a WOrdpress.com site instead now I have followed all the instructions to direct traffic from the Mr Site address to the wordpress one but it doesn’t seem to be working. It still goes to the Mr Site website. Its driving me crazy! Please help!

    The blog I need help with is the-art-room.com.au.



    Mapping to an existing domain from your WordPress.com hosted blog costs $13. annually.

    In order to map to a domain one must have an underlying .wordpress.com subdomain blog to map from. If you have registered a .wordpress.com blog you log in as Admin under the exact same username account that registered the blog and purchase a domain name by purchasing an annually renewable domain mapping upgrade for the blog.

    See here for mapping an existing domain that you already own http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/

    Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades is where you do the primary blog set up knowing 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 as I was aware it was included in the $99 premium upgrade which I have on this blog. According to mrsite all name servers are pointing to WordPress and have been for five days but when I go into wordpress it tells me that they are not. I have just checked on mr site and they are definitely seeing the WordPress name server.
    I’m really confused
