    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:

    csjblog.wordpress.com

    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/

    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
