I bought my domain through the registration process for Google Apps, and set up all the Google services therein. I changed the Nameservers per the WordPress instructions, bought the $10 domain mapping upgrade, and now have under my domain tab:
Function: Redirecting to tropophilia.wordpress.com.
But now when I go to http://www.tropophilia.com I get "Sever Not Found - Error 404", and tropophilia.com takes me to the Google-created Start Page.
What do I need to change to make my WordPress blog be mapped to http://www.tropophilia.com (i.e. when I visit http://www.tropophilia.com, I want it to be my WordPress blog). I am willing to give up all the Google services, including email, but Google's support pages seem to indicate that while I can edit all my DNS and MX settings, I cannot "remove Google services" because I purchased the domain while setting up Google Apps.
I realize now the smarter thing would have been to purchase the domain through WordPress, but alas, hindsight is 20/20 and all that.
