Unmapped but can't get it to work

    I paid for WordPress.com hosting on the personal plan, pointed the godaddy nameservers, and mapped the domain. I then realized there was a difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org. I cancelled the hosting, and domain mapping. Got hosting thru DreamHost and installed WordPress.org, and pointed the GoDaddy nameservers to DreamHost. But for whatever reason when I try to go to the site thru DreamHost it says I need to map the domain even though everything between DreamHost and GoDaddy looks to be correct. I even completely deleted the base blog I had used to map the original domain.

    Domain is: avantbarde.com

    Is there anything I might be missing to get WordPress.com to let go of the domain and allow the installed WordPress.org account to work?

    http://www.avantbarde.com/ brings me to your site using the open source wordpress.org. Name server changes usually take 24 to 48 hours to fully start working. This period, called propagation, is the projected length of time it takes for root name servers and cache records across the entire web to be updated with your website’s DNS information.

    So I have friends in other cities that I’m assuming see what you see which is a Hello World page. No matter what computer I use or how many times I clear my cache, I still get:

    “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. ”

    Does that just mean I have to wait it out until the entire web has propagated the new information? Is there anything on my end I can do? Or just waiting?

    I see the domain currently pointing to DreamHost.

    When a domain is registered or altered, there is a process called propagation, where information about the domain name is passed to internet service providers all over the world. This process can take up to 72 hours (though usually much less). During that time, your domain may go to its old location, and you may also receive a warning message in your browser about “redirect errors.”

    If you still have trouble viewing the site after 24 hours have passed, please try clearing your browser’s cache: https://www.refreshyourcache.com/

    If that doesn’t work, try clearing your local DNS cache: https://www.whatsmydns.net/flush-dns.html
