    problem with connecting my wordpress website to wordpress.com

    Ashish Paleri

      i have a wordpress website http://techtranced.com. But there is problem with connecting my wordpress to wordpress.com . Even other plugins are not able to communicate to their admin sites. It seems there is a problem with the http inbound and outbound connections .


      Iam getting the following error while trying to connect to wordpress.com


      Jetpack could not contact WordPress.com: token_http_request_failed. This usually means something is incorrectly configured on your web host.


      name lookup timed out

          Why do you need to connect to Wordpress.com?  there is absolutely nothing on that site apart from downloading the core package, themes,, widgets and the WP forums.


          Upgrades and updates don't use wordpress.com.


          Have you tried going to that site with your browser to see if there is something in the hosts file blocking that site?


          How and when did you know that your site can't connect to wordpress.com?


          Incidentally, if your webhost has done anything wrong then we can't help you here.  You need to contact them to correct their side.  Don't you think this is quite logical?


          Good luck.
