I’ve paid for a subdomain upgrade and I can’t get it to work

    I had this working previously and now it’s not working for some reason.

    subdomain name: blog.melissa-mcmahon.com
    I’ve changed the DNS settings to CNAME melissamcmahon.wordpress.com (which is currently my wordpress site). Can anyone see what I’m doing wrong?

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



    It looks like it’s setup correctly. If you want blog.melissa-mcmahon.com to be the URL that shows up, you’ll want to set it primary via the Settings->Domains page.



    thats the problem. It doesnt’ work, which is why I’ve left it on melissamcmahon.wordpress.com for now….



    It works fine for me from where I am on the web. :) Try clearing your browser’s cache and/or refreshing your browser.

    How long ago did you setup the CNAME? It can take up to 72 hours for domain name changes to fully take effect on the internet. Your ISP may be caching out of date information which will simply take time to clear out.


    Thanks! it seems to be working now. Seems like it just took a while for the CNAME to take effect as you said.
