I created a blog years ago on wordpress.com and bought a domain to go with it.
I now want to transfer that domain name to the wix site I have created. How do I go about doing this? Do I need to get it hosted by another group (GoDaddy, etc?)

Hi there! I have a wordpress blog (www.pacesetter.me) and want visitors to my wix webpage (www.chronoscounselling.com) be able to know of it and have an option to be directed there. is that possible. I know you've posted various answers on submapping and cnames and url's and ip addresses etc, but i'm not a techie and don't have the time to figure it out. can you please state it in simple practical terms for clots like me please. I've tried doing it from wordpress' side but i get messages stating that my site's not pointing to it blah blah blah and that i need to contact my domain provider etc etc. i just need it to work. i've been trying to figure it out for the last three days. please help!

If you wish to point your domain only to your WP blog, meaning your Wix website won't be accessible via http://www.jamesolmos.com/, you'll need to ask WordPress an IP to add A records to, because Wix doesn't support changing name servers.
If you wish to just "blog.jamesolmos.com" to point to your blog, just add a CNAME record with the word "blog" and the address of you blog. You can find very step by step instructions on the Nicole's best reply.Gabriel - Wix

WordPress support said . . . "you have configured your domain incorrectly at your domain registrar so that it is pointed at the IP address of one of our nameservers. You need to reconfigure it so that it has it's nameservers setup to be our nameservers.
Currently the nameservers for jamesolmos.net are set to ns1.wix.com. and ns2.wix.com. these need to be set to NS1.WORDPRESS.COM, NS2.WORDPRESS.COM, and NS3.WORDPRESS.COM"
Can Wix offer me support on how to configure its nameserver to point to the WordPress nameserver? Is this even possible?
Thank you ~
Replied by James Olmos February 1, 2012Point my domain to my WordPress blog
I purchased my domain jamesolmos.net from Wix. I want to point this domain to my WordPress blog acousticenergy.wordpress.com
I followed the directions at http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/ and added my domain to WordPress. Unfortunately, Wix keeps pointing to WordPress.com and not to my WordPress blog. So, I can't even view my blog because every time I type my personal domain jamesolmos.net or acousticenergy.wordpress.com - both open WordPress.com
I updated my domain's server to the following CNAME and I made sure to remove the A(host) servers (Wix won't let me add the same CNAME and A host anyways.)
What am I doing wrong and how can I point my domain to my WordPress blog?
