I have a Blog, for example.wordpress.com, I want updated a example.com. As the do.
The blog I need help with is anwibuma.wordpress.com.
Can anyone help
I’m trying to map my domain to my wordpress blog.
It is a .ca name
I’ve changed the name servers to ns1.wordpress.com, ns2, ns3
but when i try to map the domain wordpress tells me the domain is registered but not pointing to wordpress
anyone have any ideas on what i can do?
also i changed the A record and put in the wordpress IP addresses, thinking this might help. but it’s been 4 hours and still not working.
can anyone help?
@bmssanitation – you need a zone record added for your domain name you are trying to map to your WordPress.COM blog – I will flag this for the staff to add a zone record for you – BUT – you need to post the domain name you have purchased so the staff will know what domain name to add the zone record for.
bmssanitation, what is the exact domain name that you’re trying to map?
I have manually added a zone record for your domain.
You should now be able to map it here following this guide: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/
i’m trying to map it but wordpress keeps telling me the domain is not pointing to wordpress.
i’ve changed the name servers to ns1, ns2, ns3.worpress.com
i’ve added the IP address to the A record,
but I still can’t map.
am i doing something wrong, or is it something with my registrar?
really appreciate your help
Try taking the IP address out of the A Record – you should just point the name servers to WordPress.COM at your registrar – nothing else – no extra changes –
if you are need to have email work with your domain name you will need to use Google Aps or change some MX records at WordPress.COM – the MX record info would come from your email host.
dot ca still not working.
trying to map bmssanitation.ca to bmssanitation.wordpress.com
yes I took out the A record, set the names servers to wordpress, but still couldn’t map the domain name.
not sure what to do at this point.
does this sound like its a problem with the registrar or with the zone record?
i tried it with the .com and it worked fine, but would prefer the .ca
any suggestions or advice?
Is there no such creature as “personal” or “on line” support here at WordPress?
Please simply and clearly state exactly what you need help with. We Volunteers are able to provide support in most cases and when we can’t Staff will assist.
But when, where and how does someone contact “staff”?
We Volunteers know when to contact Staff. Please just state exactly what you need help with.
Through constant suggestions from others over the past few years, I decided to start a WordPress blog. Went to the site, followed the instructions, never got any confirmation and when I try to re-enter my email address associated with the blog that I tried to start, it says that I’m not recognized. Where that heck did all of my information go?
There are two different flavors of “WordPress” and you can read about them and the differences between them here > WordPress.com vs WordPress.org
On this supporr forum we deal only with those who have free hosted WordPress.com blogs. Those who have WordPress.org installs must post to http://wordpress.org/support/ for assistance.
What is the URL starting with http:// of the blog you are referring to
Did you check your email spam filter?
Did you whitelist email from .wordpress.com in your email client.
b.t.w., the blog title is And A Cup Of Coffee, which still opens at the same point as I left it with my opening comments.
