Subdomain Help

  1. Hello. I have gone through the various posts on wp.com relating to this issue but could not find a suitable solution. Maybe if someone can reply on this or tell me the link where I could find this.

    I have the blog at anup.wordpress.com and domain at i3pep.org
    I can create a subdomain anup.i3pep.org
    Would it be possible for me to get anup.wordpress.com into anup.i3pep.org as redirect or mapping?

    The WP.com dashboard setting page says to "add domain to blog". If I add i3pep.org - would that mean I would get it on anup.i3pep.org

    I can add subdomain to my domain, and also can add cname etc through the domain management interface.

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

  2. I think the answer is here:

    I would say: the steps would be:
    1) Add subdomain to your domain eg. anup.i3pep.org
    2) Then DNS CNAME in ones domain setup as anup.wordpress.com
    3) Then add anup.i3pep.org in the setting page relating to domain in the wordpress blog.

    Please tell me whether this is the procedure? This is what I get from the below quoted text at
    http://support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/

    Q: I own domain.com, and want to map a subdomain of that to my WordPress.com blog. Is that possible?
    A: Yes. You will need to add a DNS CNAME at your DNS provider before the domain mapping will work. You should not change your nameserver information if you just want to map a subdomain. The CNAME should look something like the following:

    subdomain.domain.com. IN CNAME [your-blog].wordpress.com.

    Once that DNS entry has been added login to your WordPress.com Dashboard, click on Settings -> Domains and enter subdomain.domain.com into the box. If everything is setup correctly, it will allow you to map the subdomain to your blog. If things are not quite right the system will let you know and provide suggestions on what you need to do to remedy the problem.
    Note: You cannot map only the “www” subdomain since we remove the www from all the URLs at wordpress.com.

  3. Please tell me - if what I am trying to do is paid addon?

  4. Yes, it is. You would have to contact staff to double-check that you could use the subdomain you want, and it's best to do this before purchasing the domain upgrade.
