    Hi there, i made my site today. i already own sopranodaisy.com and would like to use it for my wordpress site (and take the .wordpress out) of the site address. obviously it wasn’t available to me as an option as it is already owned but it is owned by me! (through go daddy) Can i remedy this?
    Many thanks,
    Daisy

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

    Follow these instructions as you already have a domain that you registered elsewhere, and you want to map that domain to your free hosted WordPress.com blog. http://support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/

    After you make the domain mapping purchase here > Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades and do the set up 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. Note that it’s quite common for your own ISP to be last one to flush their DNS caches.
