    Hello! I live in switzerland and I’ve no registred and paid a domain on http://www.switchplus.ch. Now I configured the nameservers (NS1.WORDPRESS.COM NS2.WORDPRESS.COM NS3.WORDPRESS.COM) on http://www.switchplus.ch.

    I insert the domain at my wordpress control center, but it still doesn’t work. Do I have to use other nameservers?

    Thanks a lot for your help. Greetings from Switzerland

    We will need to add a zone record for it to work – if you give me the domain name I can do that for you. :)

    thanks for the fast answer!

    the domain is: http://www.bonkerinferno.ch

    I’ve added the zone record for bonkerinferno.ch. Could you try adding the nameservers again let us know if it doesn’t work?

    Thanks!

    now it works on my provider (www.switchplus.ch)

    but I’ve got problems to insert the domain to my blog. I went to Settings – domains. then I insert the domain “bonkerinferno.ch”. it says, wordpress can’t register that (sure, ’cause it’s not .com or something else and I’ve registered it already).

    then I inserted the adress bonkerinferno.ch under “I’ve already registered the domain and configured the nameserver. insert to my blog.” when I click the button, the homepage is loading but nothing happens. do you know what’s going on?

    aw i found it. my blog was on private.

    but now it says, that I have to pay $12. is that right? first I thought I just have to pay the domain

    I’m glad you got it working. :)

    To map a previously registered domain to a WordPress.com it costs $12 per year, per blog: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/

    alright! but after I paid the $12 everybody can visit the homepage http://www.bonkerinferno.ch without problems?

    now I have to open a paypal account :D

    It will work, but it can take 24-48 hours for everything to propagate. You can always let us know if it doesn’t seem to be working. :)
