    I submitted a change of IP address for an existing domain (reserved from another provider) with the following address: Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to be working. This IP address was listed on the “Map an Existing Domain” Support page here at WP. Please let me know if I need to use another IP address. Thanks

    The blog I need help with is



    Given the fact that glitches like this generally require staff intervention, and they’re officially not around until the 19th (although sometimes they materialize) I wouldn’t try doing ANYTHING with domains at the moment.


    It’s always best to use these if you can.


    Also, any DNS change takes 24-72 hours to propagate through all the domain name servers on the internet, so you just have to be patient. Typically it will start working after a few hours, and then by 24 is pretty much stabilized, but I’ve done a couple that took 72 hours before they stabilized and worked consistently.


    Thanks very much for the guidance. I have set up a few email accounts with the service provider who registered my url. If I use the “NS1.WORDPRESS.COM” address, will that cause any problems for the email accounts? Please let me know. Thanks again.


    Yes, it will. What you will have to do is set up the emails through Google Docs as explained here.
