You are using some sort of masking or framing – that leaves fake addresses – and we don’t support what ever you are doing – you are on you own
much better to map the domain name $ 13.- / year
Hi – Thanks for this.
I’ve paid the $13 dollars. I have a quick question
I’ve followed the domain mapping tutorial and completed it, but we already have a redirection script on our hosting site, do we need to reverse it back to normal now we have domain remapped? http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/
Abandon all hope if you have a redirect script active :) –
follow the instructions – also delete the redirect script – make sure your name servers point to WordPress.COM and there is nothing else set to confuse the address –
Once the name servers are changed to the correct setting & domain mapping is active, it can take 24 to 72 hours for changes to reach the far corners of the internet – access can be erratic during this time – you will probably be the last one to see the changes due to local cashing issues, you can try clearing your browser cache and forcing a page reload
If you want to use email with your domain name – see below for options – some are free some cost a bit
I have changed the name servers via the domain so that’s all good (i hope), I have deleted the index.html file that was originally redirecting via ftp on the hosting site.
Domain Helper shows thee settings are correct – patience now on your part
You be welcome & good luck
Thanks so much for all your help :)
Took the advice and things are ALMOST there….
The website is coming through on mobile devices 3G/4G etc but it won’t seem to show on any PC’s using a wifi connection.
Any particular reason do you thing? Many thanks and sorry to pester again :)
Some systems just seem to hold onto cached data forever
At this point keep the faith, try clearing your browser caches and force a page reload.
