Mapped to Domain but Blog still isn't showing up?
Last year I blogged at http://www.onceuponaprologue.blogspot.com, and started thinking about moving to WordPress. In the meantime, I registered http://www.onceuponaprologue.com using Blogger’s custom domain option. Recently preparing to move to WordPress I did two things: created http://www.onceuponaprologue.wordpress.com and transferred my http://www.onceuponaprologue.com 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 wordpress.com blog to my http://www.onceuponaprologue.com. 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 http://www.onceuponaprologue.com. 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 http://www.onceuponaprologue.com 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 http://www.onceuponaprologue.com
Thanks in advance!
The blog I need help with is onceuponaprologue.com.
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 .blogspot.com 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 http://www.onceuponaprologue.com I still get a “the sever cannot be found” error message in my browser.
Hi Molli, if you want your custom domain onceuponaprologue.com to show the content of your blog onceuponaprologue.wordpress.com, then you need a Domain Mapping upgrade rather than a Site Redirect (Site Redirect forwards from onceuponaprologue.wordpress.com to onceuponaprologue.com, 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:
