[resolved] Hosting on Godaddy, why is it forwarding my site to wordpress.com? (4 posts)

    I signed up for godaddy wordpress hosting for the address blog.aliciajonesphotography.com (I chose this because I wanted it associated with my website). After it was all set up I went to blog.aliciajonesphotography.com/admin and it showed me a page that said "Warning! Domain mapping upgrade for this domain not found. Please log in and go to the Domains Upgrades page of your blog to use this domain.". If I click "log in" it takes me to wordpress.com to log in. If I try the username and password I set up with godaddy it doesn't exist. Sometimes when I type in my blog address instead of saying that it forwards me to http://aliciajonesphotography.wordpress.com/wp-admin/ which is an old wordpress.com account I created a long time ago just to see what wordpress does and when I had first looked at it I had tried domain mapping to blog.aliciajonesphotography.com but I immediately cancelled it and that was a year ago so I don't understand how that could still be affecting it but for some reason it seems to be forwarding my blog address there. I don't want my blog.aliciajonesphotography.com address associated with wordpress.com at all. Any help would be appreciated, I contacted godaddy but they said it was a wordpress issue.

    We can't help you here. You need to contact the folks over at wordpress.com.

    I did, it's something only wordpress.com staff can fix so I'm out of luck until they get back on the 15th. I marked this thread as resolved.

    You can actually ask the GoDaddy to help you to point your domain to different nameserver so that it will not resolve to WordPress.com's DNS.

    I have checked and the domain registrar for your domain is Godaddy and they should able to help you on that instead of waiting for WordPress.com.
