    Hello, I bought my domain through wordpress and I’m trying to use tumblr as my blog instead. I was looking under support and it says I don’t need to do a full transfer. I am trying to change the CNAME and/or A-record but it doesn’t seem to be working.

    This is what I’m following:

    CNAME <subdomain> <host>
    A <subdomain> <IP>

    What would be my subdomain? What would be the host?

    the domain I use is…this is what I want to redirect to tumblr.
