Trying to host blog on my own Domain (2 posts)

    I have a blog on http://scrantondesign.com/ which is originally http://bullzeyedesign.wordpress.com
    I purchased the Domain Mapping upgrade in order to get my blog onto ScrantonDesign.com

    Today I went to WordPress.org and downloaded WordPress. I'm trying to follow the directions in order to host my blog on ScrantonDesign.com so I can install some plugins and update the CSS. I'm just very confused. I'm not sure if I needed to purchase the Domain Mapping at all.

    Through my host (GoDaddy) I created a database for my blog. I've also input all this information into the wpconfig.php as explained in this document: http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress

    Now I'm trying to go to http://scrantondesign.com/wp-admin/install.php so that I can complete the installation of my blog. However, instead of the screen popping up so I can install, its redirecting me to http://bullzeyedesign.wordpress.com/wp-admin/install.php

    Do you know what I'm doing wrong? How can I get my blog hosted on ScrantonDesign.com without any forwarding? I had my nameservers as NS1.Wordpress.com, NS2.Wordpress.com, and NS3.Wordpress.com as it told me to do when I signed up for the domain mapping. I thought this may be the problem so I changed them back to the nameservers that GoDaddy gave me and it's still not working.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Actually, since you now host your domain at Godaddy.com, then the name servers should be the name servers assigned by Godaddy so visit your domain registrar and change your domain's name servers to the Godaddy name servers.
