Using custom domain without delegating zone

  1. Is it possible to use wordpress.com with a custom domain without having to delegate my domain or a subdomain to wordpress.com's nameservers? I run my own nameservers and I need to continue doing so, I only want my web site to run on wordpress.com.

  2. In order to map your domain here, the nameserver must be changed.

  3. I already read that and that's why I'm asking the question. Is it possible to use a custom domain name at wordpress.com by pointing the hostname to the right IPs but not by switching nameservers (that is, delegating a zone)?

  4. We don't have static IPs at WordPress.com, so that unfortunately won't work.

    We can only support mapping by pointing your nameservers here.

  5. Oh :( I understand. Thanks.

  6. You're welcome, sorry for the inconvenience.
