I tried to point my blog to my new domain of http://www.thenewcareer.org I did this 3 days ago after paying the 12 dollar fee. All I see is this: Index of / cgi-bin/ images/ postinfo.html What’s the issue? I haven’t heard from tech support yet. The blog I need help with is thenewcareer.wordpress.com.

I’ve done that in the past when I registered an old domain all through wordpress. I thought doing this new “pointing” thing took care of it. So you’re saying I need to go to Quahost and do this? What if I just went back into wordpress settings, domains, then set the original address as the primary. How long would that take to reset?

If you want something else, please clarify. Author Posts The topic ‘Pointing a blog to a domain’ is closed to new replies.
