    Last year I blogged at, and started thinking about moving to WordPress. In the meantime, I registered using Blogger’s custom domain option. Recently preparing to move to WordPress I did two things: created and transferred my to Enom, thus making them my host. (I realize it was always somewhat registered through Enom via Google Apps.)

    On Wednesday (of this last week) I mapped my blog to my My DNS settings are currently pointing to WordPress’s as instructed in the WP help on mapping to a custom domain. However, my domain is not showing up. I realize it takes awhile to propagate but it seems like (if I did everything correctly) I should be able to see I’m getting a bit frustrated and hope someone can shed some light on what I may have done wrong.

    I didn’t revoke access at my Blogger blog from pointing to and I’m wondering if that could have anything to do with it? Currently in my settings there, I still have my original Blogger blog redirecting to my

    Thanks in advance!

    The blog I need help with is



    Domain Helper shows good settings – but what’s my DNS does not – ou are over 72 hours

    I have flagged this for the staff to help

    Did you do anything other than change the name servers to point to WordPress.COM and buy the domain mapping? any old redirects?



    I have a previous redirect at Blogger – to redirect my original blog to my .com. Could that be clashing with the new settings for WordPress?



    I have removed the old redirect from my account with Blogger, but if I try to access I still get a “the sever cannot be found” error message in my browser.



    Hi Molli, if you want your custom domain to show the content of your blog, then you need a Domain Mapping upgrade rather than a Site Redirect (Site Redirect forwards from to, which is the opposite of what you want).

    I have removed your Site Redirect and added $13 in credits instead so that you can purchase a Domain Mapping.

    Please go to your domain registrar’s site (ENOM) and log into the control panel. You will need to update the name servers as below:


    Then, you’ll need to purchase the Domain Mapping (with credits) under Store > Domains.

    For more information, please visit the help documentation provided by the registrar and our support page:
