how do I find my wordpress CNAME and A names?

  1. Hi - I'm trying to point my wordpress blog to my 123-reg domain (& keep the email working). If I change the nameserver, the email does not work & I think I need to add the CNAME & A Names into the 123-reg advanced DNS settings.

    How/where do I find what these are on my wordpress? (I've bought the wordpress site redirect updagrade).

    HELP!! (please!)

    The blog I need help with is mrsbee.co.uk.

  2. Although mrsbee.co.uk has been registered, it is not using WordPress.com nameservers. You repoint the nameservers where you purchased the domain ie. at 1-2-3 not here.

  3. I'll tag this thread for a Staff follow-up. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.

  4. Hi - If I change the nameservers I loose the email (that I bought with the domain).

    Thanks for tagging for staff follow-up.

  5. Found the things I need. Just waiting to see if everything is working - they joys of the 24-48hr wait! Should be ok now though

  6. Sorry for the delay in replying. It sounds like you have everything sorted out now. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
