Using my own DNS Servers

  1. I recently paid the $13 to use my own domain name with my blog and I'm trying to confirm how I update my DNS records. I do not want to change to ns1.wordpress.com name servers but keep my own through CloudFlare.

    I would expect to just add the following records in my nameserver so that I can access it via http://www.gwynjonespta.com and gwynjonespta.com

    CNAME www gwynjonespta.wordpress.com.
    CNAME * gwynjonespta.wordpress.com.

    Can anyone confirm that using the wordpress.com nameservers can be avoided?

    The blog I need help with is gwynjonespta.com.

  2. Hi,

    We don't allow mapping the "www" subdomain, and there isn't a way to map your domain (gwynjonespta.com) without switching to our nameservers.
