    Hi all–

    So I know this wasn’t the smartest thing, but I first bought my domain name (hedgenomics) through Google Apps. Google Apps used GoDaddy to fulfill the request.

    I then registered and verified I own the domain name via a text insertion with the DNS.

    Now I registered for a blog ( and want to map my domain that I currently own with Google Apps to the blog and content that I will be posting here.

    I understand I need to upgrade to map the account and by doing so change the nameservers to match WordPress’. But when I login to GoDaddy via the Google Apps account it seems as though the first two nameservers are locked in/not editable. Am I doing something wrong?

    What can I do? Any insight would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks.

    I build a new sight for the organization in wordpress using a different URL. Now I want to use the domain name and have it map to my which I have upgraded to from

    I have added as a domain and my domain information says it should be directed to my primary site It is not.

    I guess the problem is with the redirection of the go daddy site, but I’m not sure, and if it is I don’t know what to do.



    You can map your domain to your blog following this guide:

    Your domain is your property, so if you can’t change your nameservers, I recommend contacting them to find out why they won’t allow you to control your own property.
