How do I find the A record or IP address of my wordpress.com site?
The blog I need help with is nonprofitstrategiesmn.com.
WordPress.com does not provide static IP addresses, thus there is no permanent IP address associated with your blog.
WordPress.COM is not able to accept incoming domain transfers. If you already have a domain and you want to use it with your WordPress.com site, follow the instructions for mapping an existing domain to your 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.
Thank you timethief. The site has been under a purchased domain name for 8 months. The issue is with the (email redacted) email address. Network solutions say that they need the A record or IP address to associate the email address with the domain and since it is hosted by WordPress.com that is the only place to get that information. Do you have any suggestions on how else to get the domain name associated emails to work? Thanks again for any help.
Network Solutions are the ones that need to give the the records to make their email work – see below for how to make email work with NS – NS provides the info – you make some changes here
The person you are dealing with at NS does not know what they are talking about –
Thanks so much auxclass. I have input the code and have my fingers crossed!
