CNAME – IP
I have the page etiskraadgivning.wordpress.com
I also have the domain etiskraadgivning.dk
Now, I want to re-direct my wordpress page to my domain.
I am doing this with CNAME, but to do this I need to change my A-RECORD, but again, to do this I need a IP-address of wordpress.
Do anyone know which IP I should use? is it just by ping my wordpress site? or are there some other IP in front of my wordpress page I should use?
The blog I need help with is etiskraadgivning.dk.
It won’t work unless you buy domain mapping to map an existing domain to WordPress.
Basically WordPress.com maps many blogs to a host, and it needs the mapping to know which blog to serve if it gets a request for etiskraadgivning.dk.
I have done that. I already mapped it to my domain.
I need the right IP, and wordpress dosent seem to tell me anywhere which IP I should use. :)
Are you trying to map a domain or a subdomain? If you are mapping a domain you need to change your namesevers to point to WordPress as described in the above link. This will set up your “A” records correctly
I have done all that, all I need is to get the IP.
MY host name is etiskraadgivning.dk
I have my name server specified.
But I need my [Type] A Record to have the correct IP, but this have to be set Manually . WordPress got to have a IP everyone uses, or, I have to use one specifically for my wordpress page.
You must be doing something wrong; as soon as you map to the WordPress.com nameservers then you will be using a domain server on the WordPress site which already has the correct A record set.
You can set other types of record at Store->Domains->Edit DNS in the WordPress dashboard, but the A records will be set for you
i need the specific wordpress-web-server my hp is on
Just found out that WordPress does not use static IP, it changes, so its not possible.
