    I am trying to map my existing domain hosted at go daddy. I have already updated the name server but I am not being given the option on WordPress to map the domain. I have followed the instructions but it does not show in the upgrade section. Please instruct me on how to do this.

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

    Hi there,

    I see you purchased and mapped the domain beautyandsomebeef.com a few days ago. Is your GoDaddy domain an additional domain you are trying to add to your site?

    Thanks for the clarification.

    Best!

    Hi catrymer,

    I have been attempting to map the domain for a few days… however it hasnt seemed to work so far so im surprised to hear you say its already mapped. the go daddy domain is the same domain- i have just been trying to link my two accounts as I have purchased a template, and self hosted it on go daddy and would like to upload the template to my wordpress account. Ive been trying to do this but the option is not available for some reason… what do you suggest?

    Thanks

    Hi there,

    Right now when I access your beautyandsomebeef.com domain I reach your WordPress.com site. It sounds like you might be trying to set up a new self-hosted WordPress.org site.

    Just to clear up any confusion, WordPress.com and WordPress.org are two different entities. At WordPress.com we host your site for you, and provide themes from the themes library for you to choose from. With WordPress.org you self host your site, and are able to upload new themes that you purchase. You can read more about the difference between the two at:

    It sounds like you are trying to move your domain from a WordPress.com site to a WordPress.org site. Is that correct? If so, you will need to update the nameservers through GoDaddy to point to your new site. We have more information to help you move your site at:

    Does that answer your question or have I misunderstood what you are trying to do?

    Best!
