I have just purchased the domain mapping feature for my blog (http://studio2792.wordpress.com) so that I can use my domain name http://www.studio279.co.uk to direct to my WordPress blog, where I have built my new website. I followed the instructions correctly, and for a few minutes everything worked fine. I was going through correcting links to old blog posts (imported a few weeks ago from my previous blog http://studio279.wordpress.com) but it would not link to those posts. I tried "Read blog" to check everything else was OK, now it will not display at all. All I get is "Oops! Google Chrome could not find studio279.co.uk". I do not know what to do.
I am wondering if it is to do with either the domain registration or the DNS. The domain was previous registered with BT, then I transferred it to 123-reg.co.uk as whilst I wished to transfer it to my wordpress blog I knew it wouldn't accept the transfer unless via a third party. I changed the name servers from the 123-reg ones to WordPress' servers as instructed. Would there be any reason why this would have meant it first worked with the domain name and then did not? Or is it to do with the DNS? I have yet to create a DNS record for the site as I am not very clear how it works. Could this be responsible? Or could there be another cause?
I am very anxious to get this resolved as soon as possible so I can properly launch the site. Please help!
