Site has dissappeared – help!
trying to access the admin panel for the site http://newtownresidents.wordpress.com
but getting an install page /wp-admin/install.php which seems to indicate the site doenst exist any more?
Can you help? note that we did have this site linked to a url newtownra.com but we no longer own this domain and want to point this site to a new domain?
The blog I need help with is newtownra.com.
I’m sorry about that! I have removed the expired domain from your account.
Thanks for the prompt response! much appreciated
hoping you can help me with a related issue..
am now trying to redirect a new url to this wordpress site..
instructions on http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/ say we need to update the name servers… to NS1.wordpress.com , NS2 etc
But my name server is asking me for this url AND the IP of the name server – can you clarify where i get the IP info from?
Plus they are also asking me for a technical contact details for the name server.. any advice on what i should put there?
For their IP addresses, use:
126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206
I’m not sure why they want contact details, but they could reply here if they need anything.
I’ve done the redirect at our DNS controller (www.domainz.net.nz) – then did the domain mapping purchase and setup in WP, and switched it over to the new url, but its redirecting to a parked url
is there something else i need to do ? or is this a matter of the new DNS needing to propagate? should i switch it back to the wordpress.com url for now?
oh, wait, this seems to have sorted itself now – must have just been a time thing.
one final question – its using the http://newtown.org.nz form rather than the http://www.newtown.org.nz form – if we want it to default to the www. form is that a configuration issue at the wordpress end, the DNS controller end, or both?
WordPress.com always redirects the www subdomain to the non-www version. Because of this, you can still use www version of your custom domain on your signature or business cards if you’d like.
I hope this helps – happy blogging :)
ok, thanks for clarification
You are welcome – happy blogging :)
