    Hi,

    I have tried to map my domain, purchased through wordpress, to blogspot. I have set the nameservers to

    NS01.DOMAINCONTROL.COM
    NS02.DOMAINCONTROL.COM

    in order to modify the DNS. Then I have inserted the required CNAME and A records but nothing is happening. Can someone help me please?

    The blog I need help with is madeleinealizadeh.com.

    Do you still have the custom domain set as your primary domain on the wordpress.com blog?

    Ah, yes I had. I changed it just now – nothing changed though.

    Is the Blogspot blog Public yet? If it’s set to Private that might be causing the error.

    Yes it’s public! The weird thing is that madeleinealizadeh.blogspot.com is now also directing to the WordPress site.

    It directs to a blogger log-in to me. Maybe this will just settle out.

    What are the A and CNAME records that Blogger is requiring you to add?

    CNAME is www ghs.google.com

    A records are

    @ 216.239.32.21
    @ 216.239.34.21
    @ 216.239.36.21
    @ 216.239.38.21

    Ok, it should start working in a bit. The name servers should have been NS11 and NS12, so I fixed that for you.

    Thanks macmanx. How long should this change max. take?? I have tried different name servers before and nothing happened. Just to know how long I am supposed to wait in case it’s still not working..

    After you do the set up it can take between 24 – 72 hours for domain name propagation to take place throughout the internet. You can view the DNS changes here > http://www.whatsmydns.net/ What’s important during that stage is to be patient.

    This will definitely work, but as timethief mentioned, it can take 24 to 72 hours (though usually much less).

    Hi! It has finally worked, thank god!

    Only problem: only http://www.madeleinealizadeh.com works! Typing in madeleinealizadeh.com leads to a Error 404 page. What can I do?

    It’s set exactly as Google requested. Would you please check with them on this?
