    We don’t do that – you do. If you’ve registered your domain through WordPress.com and now want it to point to a blog or website hosted elsewhere then you can do this by updating the nameservers.

    Non-WordPress.com Nameservers
    Although athomewithrebecka.com has been registered, it is not using WordPress.com nameservers. If your domain is mapped to a self-hosted site, then your configuration may be fine as currently set up.

    If you wish to host your site at WordPress.com, you will need to update your nameservers as outlined below. To learn about how to correctly map an existing domain, please see our documentation. http://support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-subdomain/

    After you make the domain mapping purchase here > Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades and 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.

    I cannot access my dashboard area on wordpress.com – If I try, I am only redirected to my wordpress.org site (located at athomewithrebecka.com). I don’t know how to update the nameservers if I can’t find them. Would love help!

    You must log in under the exact same WordPress.com username account that purchased the domain mapping upgrade from WordPress.com.

    You’ll need to be logged in as the owner of the domain, athomewrebecka, via the blog’s Dashboard http://athomewithrebeckadotcom.wordpress.com/wp-admin/

    Once done, please follow this guide: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/change-name-servers/

    When I try to login to that, it says I am not the owner…but I am.

    athomewrebecka is the owner of the domain, not athomewithrebecka.
