Hi Sara,

I just answered your email with more detailed instructions but in short, you can edit your DNS settings so that your domain points to WordPress by editing your nameservers. Please view this tutorial for the how to: .

Hi Valerio

I searched for information about how to transfer your domain to Wordpress and found this tutorial on Wordpress's website: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domai...

It looks like the reason you're getting the error is because you haven't added the nameserver details correctly. Have a look at the section called Instructions for Mapping an Existing Domain on the article.

Hi Valerio

Well, from the Wordpress tutorial, it looks like the name server names to add is NS1.WORDPRESS.COM, etc (see the tutorial again). Looking at the screen shot you pasted on this thread, you've added the name server names as WP1. This is most likely the cause of the errors.

You will need to go back into your DNS settings on Yola and change it so that it is exactly as it is in the Wordpress tutorial I referenced above.

I understand the name but how do you find the ip address.
What do you do with the auth code provided by yola where do you put that on word press?

Hi Kate,

The steps you follow will vary depending on if you are pointing your domain or transferring it. Either way the steps in this tutorial will guide you.
