    Jennifer THANKS so much…yes here it is http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/#instructions-for-mapping-an-existing-domain

    Point 2 says : go to store in your BlogĀ“s dashboard (dont have a blog, just a WP account) I tried to get the free WP blog and then change but the problem is that my domain name is not available in .wordpress.com

    Then the instructions say: enter the domain into the form…
    WHAT FORM????

    If store is the link below, under “Do More” column, then I go to a page where there is no “ADD DOMAIN” just Upgrades

    Already recieved a mail from Godaddy that the DNS are changed.

    So greatfull if you can give me a hand!

    I think that support doc assumes that you have signed up to create a site/blog, not just a username. :)

    In order to do domain mapping, you’ll need a WordPress.com site to map it to. Start here http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/#adding-new-blog-to-an-existing-account and then carry on afterwards with the domain mapping.

    Jennifer ! THANKS that did it ! But know I have another problem…
    Trying to get through the credit card to purchase the maping (hole bundle $99) and after getting all the if and pressing on “purchase” It gets me to a page that says “are you sure you want to do this” BUT THERES NO BUTTON to accept, just the TXT.
    Im using google chrome so I dont think thats a problem. I just purchased yesterday in goddady so the credit card is good.
