Changing CNAME or Linking to External Site

  1. I would like to know how to link my domain (www.officialchaotik.com) to an external site (officialchaotik.squarespace.com). I would like my domain to remain http://www.officialchaotik.com but I want the content of the site to be from officialchaotik.squarespace.com. Im having trouble understanding how to change the CNAME or what Im supposed to do in order to link it. please let me know if you can help

    The blog I need help with is officialchaotik.com.

  2. Where did you purchase your domain name from? I think that it needs to be switched there.

  3. I purchased my domain here on WP

  4. These instructions may be what you need.

  5. ? Not sure if you forgot the link or to add the instructions...

  6. Ha, too many tabs open. Try this. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/move-domain/

  7. I'll try that thanks! not too sure if thats exactly what I need to do though....because from my "squarespace" I have the option to link my domain and here's what it says:

    Website
    This domain is not managed by Squarespace. To link this domain, you must access your registrar's interface and create a CNAME record that points http://www.officialchaotik.com to http://www.squarespace6.com. Please note that it can take up to 24 hours for the domain pointing process to complete.

  9. this is what I found on here but not too helpful... http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/custom-dns/

  10. I would follow this thread and it's links. If that's not helpful after some contacts with both ends let me know.

  11. ok it looks like I have to try contacting WP support but that appears to be a difficult task for some reason....why is it so hard to find a "contact info" or place on here to contact support? Im only being referred to this forum every time

  12. I'm not sure. I know that within WP things run very smoothly but moving outside brings some problems, as I'm sure you're experiencing.

  13. indeed...
