    Hi, thanks for your help.

    I want to map my Domain to a free WordPress blog.
    Domain: scrob.tv
    Wordpress: scrobtv.wordpress.com

    I went to the registrar and changed the DNS to the wordpress servers.

    Apparently it worked:

    Only Berlin Germany has a cross, not sure what that means.

    Still I only get timeouts and 502 Gateway errors. What am I doing wrong?

    The blog I need help with is scrob.tv.

    It takes time for any domain name change to occur throughout the internet. We have no control over how long it takes each spot to clear their DNS caches. It can take up to 72 hours. In other words this is not an instantaneous process. You can track the changes here > http://www.whatsmydns.net/

    http://scrob.tv/ appears to be working properly.

    As mentioned above, it can take domain changes up to 72 hours (though usually much less) to propagate to your ISP. Unfortunately, we have no control over this as it all depends on how often your ISP refreshes their DNS cache.

    Strange, it still doesn’t work for me. Maybe it’s because I’m in Germany and whatsmydns showed a X for Germany from the beginning.

    Works with a proxy, so it must be a local thing.
