    So I changed nameservers of a .com domain on a different wp.com account, and it no longer takes me to the wp.com site, however, I do know it takes several hours to update, but when it does, it won’t go to MY BLOG, as thousands of people have the same name servers, everyone on the host I am on. What do I have to do to get it to go to MY BLOG not someone elses?

    Are you talking about the WordPress.com domain mapping upgrade or is your site entirely hosted off WordPress.com?

    To better understand, please give us the full URL of the site you are talking about.

    This is just a blog, hosted off WordPress.Com with a domain. (http://clubpenguin-hd.com, which is now just a blank page because it doesnt lead anywhere, however I need to it to go to my new host)

    I see the domain name was registered through Automattic (WordPress.com). See here for instructions on how to change the nameservers for those of your new host:
