Redirecting Registered Domain

    I am working on moving my blog from Blogger to WordPress. While I’m getting my design set up and learning about how to work in WordPress I’d like to get my registered domain directed away from WordPress and to Blogger. How can I make that happen? Currently prayersandpeekaboo.com is directed to prayersandpeekaboo.wordpress.com but that page isn’t ready to go live yet. I need prayersandpeekaboo.com to go to prayersandpeekaboo.blogspot.com until my WordPress blog is ready.

    The blog I need help with is prayersandpeekaboo.com.

    Okay, so I got all the way to where I can set the nameservers but now I’m stumped. I figured I could change the nameserver to prayersandpeekaboo.blogspot.com but when I try it says I have to use 2 nameservers. I’m not sure what my second would be?

    Okay so the guys at Blogger have filled me in on nameservers and believe that I need to transfer my domain registration to a registrar that provides hosting. I’ve reached out to Wild West Domains (where apparently my domain purchase through WordPress went to) and they said they cannot help me and I need to get answers from this forum.

    So, my question is what should I be changing my nameservers to so that I’m directing my traffic (for the domain I registered through WordPress) to my Blogger site?

    I’ve already made it that far but I’m stuck on what my nameservers should be.

    Blogger Support is telling me that Wild West likely won’t let me change the “A” / “CNAME” entries to redirect to Blogger. When I called them to find out I was told they do not offer support for domains purchased through WordPress and I had to come back here.

    Blogger doesn’t offer nameservers.

    You’ll need to follow this guide: http://support.google.com/blogger/bin/static.py?hl=en&ts=1233381&page=ts.cs

    The DNS rules can be entered into your Custom DNS panel: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/custom-dns/
