    Have you installed WordPress on your Dreamhost account yet?

    Yes! My intention was to start a self hosted blog. I use Dreamhost and have installed WP for “” domain as well as changed the nameservers. For some reason, it produces an error having to do with the “.com” version and I am SO confused!!!

    When did you make the name server changes? Were you aware that it can take up to 72 hours for the changes to fully propagate? If in doubt, contact Dreamhost and ask them to check your changes for you.

    It came up with an install page but when i type the url into another tab, it takes me here: “ is no longer available.”

    I suggest you complete this form immediately so you don’t get locked out of your site (I could fill out the form, put in a password, and have total administrative control of your site – not good!)

    I think its ok…. and everything related seems to be loading.

    If you go to you can see the status of your DNS being deployed across the world. Right now, it’s all pointing to the same IP ( which is good 🙂 That’s where you are on DreamHost. There may still be odd moments for the next few hours, where it shows the old WPCOM stuff, but that will work out as all the DNS ‘phone books’ on the planet get updated.

    I know it’s scary, but you’re okay 🙂
