CNAME and A Records

    Hello,

    we have a purchased domain (ateneonavarro.es) in which we have several services (mail, ftp, etc…). We would like to configure it so when it goes to the web page (http://www.ateneonavarro.es) it goes to the wordpress.com page we have (http://ateneonavarro.wordpress.com).

    As far as I know, we need to configure in our server the records such as CNAME, A, etc… and I am not being able of finding them (all info I get is for doing just the opposite, configure in wordpress DNS to go somewhere else http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/custom-dns/) and we would like to do just the opposite.

    Could you please provide me your CNAME, A… records?

    Thank you in advanced,
    Luis

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

    Hey there,

    If you choose to use a DNS provider other than WordPress.com, you can only make your blog accessible via a subdomain.

    We run WordPress.com using a wide variety of servers, so there’s no single IP address we can give you for an A record.

    Instead, you’ll need to create a CNAME to access your blog. For your CNAME, just enter your WordPress.com blog address, e.g. support.wordpress.com.

    You cannot create a CNAME for the root of your domain (i.e. example.com), so you’ll need to create a subdomain (i.e. blog.example.com).

    You can learn more about mapping a subdomain here.

    If you’d like to place your blog at the root of your domain, you will need to use WordPress.com’s DNS hosting.

    Best,
    P.
