    Hi! I made a new website on WordPress.com to replace an existing but very old website. I’d like to use the original domain name (abada-berlin.de), which is hosted by Strato.de, however when I contacted them to change the name servers, I received this as a reply:

    “It is only possible to change NS records on sub domains ths feature is not available on main domains, You could point the domain to wordpress using the Arecord feature or using a 301 redirect.”

    From what I understand, I can’t use an A record redirect. What can I do?

    We also have email set-up with this domain, how can I keep the addresses functional? Thanks!

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

    While waiting you can read what follows. For domain mapping instructions see here please http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/

    After you make a domain mapping purchase here > Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades and do the primary blog set up it can take between 24 – 72 hours for domain name propagation to take place throughout the internet. You can view the DNS changes here > http://www.whatsmydns.net/ What’s important during that stage is to be patient.

    If your domain registrar doesn’t allow you to change the NS records, then you can only map a sub-domain to your WordPress.com blog. You can follow the steps in this guide on how to do that: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-subdomain/

    Please let us know if you need any further assistance!
