i'm setting up a blog myblog.wordpress.com and have the domain name and emails with a 3rd party service provider.
I understand about mapping the domain name so i can use my name myblog.com for my wordpress blog, but i'm getiing confused on updating the cname and a records.
i don't want to change my email accounts. my registrar told me to change the A record so the IP points to the wordpress IP and update the cname
so at the registrar it looks like this:
myblog.com A 126.96.36.1997
this would be changed to:
myblog A 188.8.131.52 ( Is this the correct WordPress IP?)
now i'm getting confused on the cname
mail.myblog.com CNAME mail.myregustrar,ca
should this be changes to
mail.myblog.com CNAME mail.myblog.wordpress.com ?
also I'm not sure I understand this custom DNS for wordpress
would I just put in the information that I have from my registrar?
sorry im a little confused about what to change at the registrar and what to add on wordpress.
