I'm trying to map the domain name youngpeopleslc.com to my blog at youngpeopleslc.wordpress.com.
I did a site redirect to the wordpress name servers and then I purchased the Add a domain in Store -> Domain. It worked! But... email services didn't. So then I went back to my domain registrar (network solutions) and changed from a site redirect to advanced DNS and set the A records to point to:
18.104.22.168 (which is ns1.wordpress.com)
If I do a tracert for youngpeopleslc.com, I eventually end up at ns1.wordpress.com
Tracing route to youngpeopleslc.com [22.214.171.124]
over a maximum of 30 hops:
<blah blah blah...>
12 58 ms 38 ms 42 ms 10.41.100.14
13 52 ms 42 ms 74 ms ns1.wordpress.com [126.96.36.199]
But... the site isn't showing. So, I think that the traffic is getting redirected to wordpress, but wordpress doesn't know what to do with it? Maybe?
