Three weeks ago, I transferred my WordPress.com website to bluehost so I could take advantage of branching out my website the most. So, I purchased hosting on Bluehost and transferred my blog and all of its contents. Changed the DNS Nameservers to bluehost servers and I thought it was all great.
Until it kept reverting back to the old WordPress.com website randomly despite changed DNS (correct) bluehost nameservers.
So, I moved my domain I purchased on WordPress.com to bluehost. Did all of the necessary things and it went great...I thought.
My website is http://www.bearsdenpizza.com. It would randomly keep reverting back to bearsdenpizza.wordpress.com. On some computers at different houses and locations, it would flat out refuse to show anything but bearsdenpizza.wordpress.com despite typing in bearsdenpizza.com.
I've pinged both situations through command prompt and when it's showing correctly, the IP address is bluehost. When I'm on a computer that isn't showing it correctly, it's showing a WordPress.com IP address.
So, I purchased domain forwarding for bearsdenpizza.wordpress.com to go to bearsdenpizza.com. Then....I just would either get the correct website....or a DOMAIN MAPPING UPGRADE ERROR.
So, I -deleted- bearsdenpizza.wordpress.com entirely. Seemed to work for a bit and then it went back to domain mapping upgrade!!!
When I go to "My Blogs" in WordPress.com, it only lists my backed up old WordPress.com site at bearsdenconway.wordpress.com. But, when I go to my Settings to change primary blog, it lists that....and bearsdenpizza.com.
How is that possible?
I do not want WordPress.com to have anything to do with bearsdenpizza.com. I've completely moved to bluehost to use a functioning WordPress.org installation and I'm not looking back.
This problem is costing our company a lot of money and major exposure! I've been contacting music booking agencies all over the country and it's a total crapshoot if our website shows up or not!
Currently, I notice if I'm on my personal wifi, the correct website shows. However, if I switch to my LTE, it goes to a domain mapping upgrade.
A lot of my employees also only see a domain mapping upgrade. We have a private employee section on the website half my staff hasn't been able to access in weeks.
I've followed every WordPress.com tutorial to a tee about transfering a site over and did every step possible. This is an advanced DNS error that only the good folks at WordPress.com can solve. I've even hired a professional IT web developer and designer and they couldn't fix it either because its a WordPress.com problem.
Please, can I get this solved? This is hurting not only my position in the company, but my company as a whole.
The blog I need help with is www.bearsdenpizza.com.
