Mapping domain *and* sub-domain

    I'm looking at http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-subdomain/. Is it possible to map the blog and pages to http://www.example.com and a group of page to sub.example.com.

    The blog I need help with is likethegoddess.wordpress.com.

  2. Hey there.

    It's currently not possible to map a domain or subdomain to a single page or group of pages on a WordPress.com blog. However, you can always create a new WordPress.com blog, move your pages there, and then map the subdomain to that new blog, while having your main domain mapped to your original blog.

    Hope that makes sense, and let me know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks!

    Thanks. Yes, that does make sense.

    What about pointing the subdomain to a site hosted elsewhere. From what I understand, that designation would have to happen in the CNAME of the zone file where the domain is hosted. Can I do that at wp.com?

  4. Sure, you can add CNAME or A records for subdomains to point them to a different hosting environment or service, without having to change your name server records. You can learn more about custom DNS here:

    Thanks.
