How-To

Domain Mapping to WordPress

Mapping your Domain to WordPress

Steps at WordPress:

  1. 1. Log into your account at WordPress.com and go to Domains > Add Domain:

2. Click Upgrade next to already own a domain.

3. Enter the domain that you are interested in pointing at WordPress and then click Add.

4. If you didn’t already have a plan at WordPress already, complete the checkout process for the domain mapping and a WordPress.com plan.

Steps at Reclaim Hosting:

You now need to update your nameservers from Reclaim Hosting’s nameservers to WordPress’ nameservers.

WordPress uses the following nameservers:
ns1.wordpress.com
ns2.wordpress.com
ns3.wordpress.com

To change your nameservers, log into your Reclaim Hosting Client Area Portal and go to Domains > My Domains:

From the list of your domain registrations with Reclaim Hosting, choose the drop down next to Manage Domain and select Manage Nameservers:

From this screen, you can edit the nameservers to WordPress’ nameservers and click Change Nameservers to save them.

Please note that nameserver changes can take 24-48 hours to work globally as DNS propagates across the web.
