Domain/Subdomain Mapping

  1. I currently own a domain, but do not have hosting for it. Ideally, I would like to map 5 blogs to this domain, with one main blog being accessed at the root and the other 4 being subdomains. My concern is that when people type in "mydomain.com", or "www.mydomain.com", they should see "blog1".

    Example:
    blog 1 >> http://www.domain.com
    blog 2 >> blog2.domain.com
    blog 3 >> blog3.domain.com
    blog 4 >> blog4.domain.com
    blog 5 >> blog5.domain.com

    And what can I do to not lose my email forwarding in this situation? Anything?

  2. Also, if I instead map to 5 subdomains, can I perhaps use the "domain forwarding" and "email forwarding" offered by my domain registrar? I'm thinking this is probably the correct way to do this, now that I think of it.

    (www.domain.com forwards to blog1.domain.com)
    (email(at)domain.com is preserved)
    blog 1 >> blog1.domain.com
    blog 2 >> blog2.domain.com
    blog 3 >> blog3.domain.com
    blog 4 >> blog4.domain.com
    blog 5 >> blog5.domain.com

    Will that work?

  3. Have you read the documentation on domain mapping? I believe the very first post answers your questions.

    Currently all of the subdomains map to a single blog here. Email support is not available as those changes would have to be made on the nameservers here at wp.com. The regiatar's setting wouldn't apply as their nameservers wouldn't be used.

    You can do it with your were hosted elsewhere and use the regular wordpress software from http://wordpress.org
