    I used the wrong domain name with the blog below. It should be parkcitywellnesscenter.com. I am ready to direct the domain name to this blog (it will serve as a website, not a blog) and have never done this before. although I purchased the ‘extras’ package, I had the wrong domain name, so I repurchased the correct domain name. Now I’d like to get rid of the domain: parkcitywellnessclinic.com and correct the blog name too. Not sure how to do any of this.
    Blog url: http://parkcitywellnessclinic.wordpress.com/

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

    I have canceled the incorrect domain mapping.

    You don’t necessarily have to change parkcitywellnessclinic.wordpress.com, just set parkcitywellnesscenter.com as the primary domain via Store -> Domains in the blog’s Dashboard.

    Thanks! Now, can I simply check the domain parkcitywellnesscenter.com and the site will automatically direct there? Right now it goes to a go daddy.com placeholder page. How long should it take to transfer, and do I need to do anything additional on the other end?

    The nameservers aren’t directed to us.

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

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