Trying to redirect to, but doesn't work

    Hi guys,

    I’ve been trying to move my blog from blogger to wordpress in the past few days.

    I have successfully moved it to, but now I want to redirect to and it doesn’t work.

    I’ve added this line to the DNS records:
    CNAME www

    But I still do not see it working. Any thoughts?

    Please help! Thank you so much!

    The blog I need help with is


    Member strips out the www. for your convenience, and will always redirect to

    www is an old protocol from back when everything was under separate server hardware. www ( was the web server, mail ( was the mail server, ftp ( was the FTP server, print ( was the print server, etc.

    These days, everything is run under the web server, making www. redundant and a waste of four characters.


    Absolutely, and all I really want is to redirect from to… but right now that redirect doesn’t seem to work. Any ideas why?


    OMG OMG it just started working. It was probably just a matter of DNS propagation. Thank you!



    Yes. I posted above as you were typing. Please read what I posted.



    Actually, it is not working, yet. Not in Chrome.



    I am in Canada and I am redirected correctly to

    After you make the domain mapping purchase here > Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades and do the primary blog 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 > What’s important during that stage is to be patient.



    Thank you! It is strange to know that in some places you this works already and in others it does not. Will be patient.



    The first time I moved a name – the delay and erratic actions, me not being able to see the site but others could – really confused me and had me worried – waiting was very hard and scary

    PS – one other question – do you have an email address that is through your custom domain name?

    If so you have some other updates to make – see below for help



    It’s common for the last ISP to flush their DNS caches to be your own ISP. You do not need our help. Patience is what’s required.
