    Hello, I’m currently trying to change the A Record for my domain that I purchased through wordpress.com. It was purchased less than 60 days ago so I understand that I can’t transfer control to GoDaddy, but I would like to point the domain to the site I’ve set-up on GoDaddy before the 60 days is up. When I login to edit my domains, I click on the registered domain (allweareblog.com) and then click on Name Servers and DNS and then DNS Records (Use WordPress.com Name Servers is toggled to ‘on’). Then I click on Add New DNS Record. Under Type I’ve selected A, under the name I enter allweareblog.com and then under Points To I’m putting in the GoDaddy IP address. However, I keep getting an error that says Invalid Name above the Name field. Any ideas? I’m stuck and feel like I’ve googled everything with no success. Thank you!

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

    It might be worth noting that I had upgraded to a Premium account when I purchased the domain, and I cancelled my Premium account today. Do you think that’s why I no longer have the ability to make the update?
