    hi all,
    i have a registered domain and would like that when i entered in the browser, to user is redirectet to my wordpress blog (and that in the url remains the entered domain).

    I thought it could work somehow with a cname, but how do i get one?

    can somebody give me a step by step instruction what do to?

    thanks

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

    To clarify, are you trying to setup a custom domain for a WordPress.com blog or redirect traffic from a WordPress.com blog to a site setup at an outside web host?

    i would like the following:
    i have a registered domain (www.abc.ch) and i have a wordpress blog (hcdaargau.wordpress.com.

    now i when i enter http://www.abc.ch in the browser, that it redirects to my wordpress blog so that only http://www.abc.ch is visible in the browser.

    Why don’t you just map the domain?? – simple and your site looks professional

    Shouldn’t it be possible to redirect when having a domain somewhere? Like this i pay twice, once the host/domain and also here on wordpress for the mapping. I am sure there’s a technial way to solve the problem. How does it work with creating a cname?
