    Hey guys – hoping someone can help me. I need my wordpress domain mchalecunningham.com to point to my tumblr page http://mchalecunningham.tumblr.com/. I initiated a domain tranfer but I have to wait until the 2/7. The problem is that it’s my wedding site and I need to send out save the dates ASAP which have the wordpress domain listed on them. Please help!

    The blog I need help with is mchalecunningham.com.

    We cannot expedite this process.

    There is no way to do that so hopefully you are clear on that. It can take up to 72 hours to complete the change throughout the internet.

    Hi there,

    If you already initiated the domain transfer, you’ll need to wait until the transfer is complete before you can make any changes to the domain settings (like the name servers). Changes can’t be made while the domain name is being transferred to the new registrar.

    If you’re waiting for the transfer to be completed, you can bypass the waiting period and approve the transfer with this guide: Completing the transfer

    Please let me know if I can provide any further help with this. :)

    If I cancel the transfer will I be able to just keep wordpress as the domain host and point it to tumblr?

    If you cancel the transfer, yes, you can keep your domain registered here at WordPress.com and point it to Tumblr. I can do that for you if you’d like — just let me know. :)

    Hi there,

    I pointed your domain to Tumblr, so you’re all set on this end. :) To finish setting up your domain on Tumblr, you can complete the post-login steps described here: http://www.tumblr.com/docs/en/custom_domains

    Please let me know if I can provide any further help with this. :)

    Thank you so much for you help. It’s saying to complete this that I need to change my A Record to 66.6.44.4. I’m searching the forums on how to do that but I’m having trouble. How do I go about doing this?

    Hi there,

    I already changed your A record for you, so you don’t need to worry about that part. You just need to go through the steps under “Post-login steps” on that page. :)

    Ahhh – I was adding in http. We’re all set! Thanks again for your help. It’s very much appreciated.

    Hello,

    I am having a similar problem pointing my WordPress domain to Tumblr. I changed my A record and attempted to change the name server but it still does not seem to be working.

    Could you please help me redirect american-ramblers.com to american-ramblers.tumblr.com?

    @jennyvh I see that your domain is pointing to Tumblr now. Do you need any further assistance? You can read more information about custom domains at

    Hello @kardotim! Thanks so much your reply.

    Yes, my domain is pointing to Tumblr but unfortunately it does not point to my specific page, www. american-ramblers.tumblr.com. I am just redirected to an error page saying that nothing was found.

    I already went through the instructions on the custom domains to no avail. I thought the issue might have something to do with the name server.

    I am just looking to have american-ramblers.com go directly to american-ramblers.tumblr.com.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!!
