Setting up a blog, changing a blog name and attaching it to a website
I have already created a blog called csjblog.wordpress.com under my account planetcoms.
Now I want to change this blog to our domain: csjk9blog.com and attach it to our website.
How do I do this?
The blog I need help with is planetcoms.wordpress.com.
You buy the domain name and mapping upgrades for a total of $18 a year, and on your website you add a link, tab, or button to take you to the blog and vice versa.
Yes but I don’t know how to access the blog url to change it. Where do I go and how?
As long as nobody else owns the domain, you can buy it from the Upgrades page of the Dashboard of that blog. http://en.support.wordpress.com/add-a-domain/
I have bought the domain csjk9blog.com from 1and1 and forwarded it to: csjblog.wordpress.com. It is showing as a wordpress site but not under my WordPress account:
How do I link the two together?
Like I said, you need to buy the Domain Mapping upgrade as well or it won’t work.
looks like you did some of this for Domain Mapping – but the name servers do not seem to be set correctly at 1&1
It also looks like you are using some sort of forward and mask – so you will never see a valid address for your blog – neither will search engines – fix the name servers and you will see good URLs in the browser
What do you need for me to transfer the domain http://www.csjk9.com to WordPress?
They say their name servers are set correctly.
The alternative is that you give me the DNS records and name server information for 1&1 to implement at your end.
Please make this easy. I am not a tecchy and am finding this very hard.
You are selling dog food on ww.csjk9.com/ – you want to talk about dog food on your http://csjk9blog.wordpress.com/ and you want //csjk9blog.wordpress.com/ blog to look like it is part of your web site ww.csjk9.com/?
If the above is true – your name servers are set correctly – then you need to map your blog as a sub-domain – that will give you something like blog.csjk9.com/ for the address
See below for the instructions – they are not as bad as they look if you go through step by step – you will need a record added at your registrar (explained in the steps)
I will also flag this for the staff to review your account to see if you have purchased the correct upgrade
I don’t see any domain mapping upgrades on your account yet.
If you want csjk9.com to show your blog, you’ll need to map a domain following this guide: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/
If you want something like blog.csjk9.com to show your blog, you’ll need to map a subdomain following this guide: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-subdomain/
Hello, I’ve just paid in btc for redirecting my blog to another site (own domain bitcoinpit.net), but can’ t see this domain added as primary in Store/Domains. What is the problem?
Hi – Ive mapped my blog to a subdomain, but it has an Apache error kateheyward.wordpress.com to blog.runningintherain.com.au ?? Is this a problem with my worpress settings or my server settings? I’ve tried reading everything but cant figure it out..
maybe because its .com.au?
thanks so much for your help
