I was reading the Support thing for adding a domain I already own to my blog and what I'm a little confused about is the fact that I'm being told to edit my name servers - I don't want to 'transfer' my domain or wordpress (or if I can, this may well be easier), I don't want to lose all my mail all I want to do is point my domain to my wordpress blog.
Is this even possible with WordPress? This concept of domain mapping seems like an awkward split between transferring hosting and pointing and doesn't seem like the most efficient way of managing things. If I can simply edit my DNS (A and CNAME records only) to 'point' to my blog then I will be supremely happy. If I have to 'map' my domain by editing my name servers and losing all my mail (as A, CNAME and MX records will then be useless), can I then re-set up my mail addresses through wordpress and/or transfer my domain to wordpress... Otherwise I have a domain hosted by godaddy with wordpresses name servers and no mail... awkward.
All else fails I'm gonna have to register a new domain with wordpress and/or cancel my current one... if we can register with wordpress then we must be able to transfer to wordpress... but once again, pointing would be easier :)
The blog I need help with is nataliepriscilla.wordpress.com.
