Changed namerservers, domain name still takes me to old site (6 posts)

    I just bought a domain name from wordpress.com. I changed the nameservers so that I could use it with another host and use a self hosted wordpress.org site. The name servers have been successfully changed but the domain name still takes me to my wordpress.com site. Is there something I missed or something I still need to do?

    I've read through this and followed the steps to change the nameservers, but it still takes me to my wordpress.com site.

    It can take up to 72 hours for the change to propagate fully.

    I'll keep waiting for it to change, thanks.

    Try use http://intodns.com/yourdomainname to check on the nameserver propagation.

    If everything is resolved properly, try clear your browser cache and your computer's DNS cache. Try the command on your command prompt with

    >ipconfig /flushdns

    You might need to reboot your modem/router if necessary.
