This brief set of instructions has been developed to assist those of you who have created a WordPress blog on our network. Please follow all these steps if you decide to map the network url of your blog (oapress.org/yourblog) to yourdomain.com.
These instructions apply only to newly created sites. For established sites, please contact us for details as the process is different and slightly more complicated.
- Register your desired domain name. (We can register it for you as well for $20.00/year.)
- Point your domain to our DNS nameservers (Contact us to get the information about our DNS).
- It may take up to 48 hours for your site to be “populated” after the nameserver change.
- We will then park your domain on our hosting ($20.00/year).
After this has been done, then you can use your admin panel to point your network blog to your own domain:
Tools –>Domain Mapping–>Add a New Domain (type your domain and click add)–>Make your (main domain) Primary.
Of course, if you need any help in this process we will be happy to assist you.
Caution: Please do not try to map your domain without following the steps above. If you do not follow these steps, your blog will just simply vanish from the web.
Domain Parking Fee (Annual): $20.00
Domain Registration Fee (Annual): $20.00
