Can somebody please help me with a mapping/domain steps to create a blog?

  1. Hello,

    Please help someone that knows nothing about mapping or domains.

    I have a website that is hosted with one webhost but I bought the name from a different website (godaddy.com). Additionally, I do use Google Apps, which I read can't be used with wordpress.org in the main domain. But I don't get the whole:

    "Q: I own domain.com, and want to map a subdomain of that to my WordPress.com blog. Is that possible?
    A: Yes. You will need to add a DNS CNAME at your DNS provider before the domain mapping will work. You should not change your nameserver information if you just want to map a subdomain. The CNAME should look something like the following:

    subdomain.domain.com. IN CNAME [your-blog].wordpress.com."

    That to me is Chinese (no offense to Chinese but I don't speak it). How is that different from my current top level domain from Google App based: mail.domain.com

    Since I have one host and one domain name provider, and a few Google Apps domains (mail.domain.com), what would be the actual steps I would have to follow to get wordpress.com removed from my blog and start using my own domain. I did read the support page but I still don't get it. BTW, when I added mail.google.com, I just emailed my host with the DNS information and they did the rest.

    Thanks.

    Claudia
