    i bought kapokisms.com from wordpress and paid for mapping and name registration they assigned be kapokisms.com.wordpress.com

    should i go to kapokisms.com to build my primary website?

    i built it at the wordpress site and it does not transfer data to the primary

    The blog I need help with is kapokisms.wordpress.com.

    I am seeing kapokisms.com point correctly to your WordPress.com site.

    It can take 24-48 hours for domain/DNS changes to propagate throughout the internet. It typically happens faster than that, but it really depends on your ISPs update frequency. If you are still not seeing the correct site appear after 48 hours has elapsed, please contact me again.

    Also, do let me know if you have further questions or if anything is unclear.

    Primary Blog is Set

    kapokisms.com is set as the primary domain for kapokismsdotcom.wordpress.com and will appear in the address bar when you visit the site.

    You are mapped to kapokismsdotcom.wordpress.com – which is where you build the site – which looks like the wrong site

    Since you have content on kapokisms.wordpress.com/ – you can transfer the domain mapping from kapokismsdotcom.wordpress.com to kapokisms.wordpress.com by

    Dashboard >> My Upgrades >> click on the transfer option for the domain mapping and follow the instructions

    Or @rootjosh can move the mapping for you – but you will need to ask him directly with small clear words to transfer the domain mapping for you (i.e. please move mapping from kapokismsdotcom.wordpress.com to kapokisms.wordpress.com)

    Note – you will always work in the base blog (your-site.wordpress.com) and not the mapped domain name (your-site.com)

    As Auxclass says, let me know if you need the transfer he describes. I can help you with that.

    Looking at this again, I am almost positive that transferring kapokisms.com from kapokismsdotcom.wordpress.com to kapokisms.wordpress.com is what you are going to want to do to get this straightened out.
