with subdomain mapping, do I lose FTP?

  1. Hello,

    I'm looking at setting up a subdomain to web.supportivelistening.org. Before I do that, I want to double check a few things. From the support docs, it looks like if I map a DOMAIN then I'd lose my email (other than using google apps) and I'd lose FTP abilities.

    If I map to a SUBDOMAIN,

    * Can I keep using my provider hosted email, as is?
    * Can I keep doing FTP to subdirectories on supportivelistening.org?
    * Any other things I might lose if I map to a subdomain?

    WordPress rocks! Thank you,

    Paul.

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

  2. There isn't alot information about this. All I could find is this: http://support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/

    Maybe you should take this question directly to the staff using this form: http://support.wordpress.com/contact/

    Sorry & Good Luck.

    Random, because that's what life is.

  3. Below is what I heard back from support. And so quick! thank you.

    Yes, mapping a subdomain will not force you to change your DNS, so everything should still work as expected.

    > * Can I keep doing FTP to subdirectories on supportivelistening.org?

    Yes, but you will not have FTP access to your WordPress.com blog, even if it is mapped to a subdomain. This will not effect how you access everything else on your server via FTP.

    > * Any other things I might lose if I map to a subdomain?

    Nope, you should be all good.

    Best,
    Anthony
