Map an Existing Domain – ISSUE

    I added my domain to WordPress a few days ago, but it keeps pointing to and not my blog. So, I can’t even view my blog because every time I type my personal domain or – both open

    I followed the directions at

    The blog I need help with is



    I flagged this thread for Staff attention as both URLs are directing to the home page.



    A whois shows the name servers pointing to with your name. Do you have any redirects at your registrar? Pointing to should not work correctly – they should point to WordPress.COM.


    @timethief Thanks for flagging this thread. @auxclass The “redirects” point to the three WordPress IP address found here

    Wix support said everything is setup correctly on their end. WordPress accepted my domain name and I paid the fee to use the name. Yet, it’s not working.

    Tumblr accepted my domain name and it pointed to my blog at their site, with no problem. It basically had the same setup too, minus the fee. I would rather have my domain point to my WordPress blog.

    I appreciate any insight.

    Kind regards ~



    I flagged this thread for Staff attention again as both URLs are still directing to the home page.



    @acousticenergy you have configured your domain incorrectly at your domain registrar so that it is pointed at the IP address of one of our nameservers. You need to reconfigure it so that it has it’s nameservers setup to be our nameservers.

    Currently the nameservers for are set to and these need to be set to NS1.WORDPRESS.COM, NS2.WORDPRESS.COM, and NS3.WORDPRESS.COM

    For now I have switched the Primary Domain for your blog back to: so you can access it by that url again.

    Once you have corrected the nameservers you can then switch the primary domain back to


    @westi Thank you

    If I can’t get deeper support from Wix or if their “system” does not allow me to effectively point to WordPress, then I’ll transfer my .net domain name to NameSecure. It’s where I have my .com domain.
