I have a domain xxx.com which has just been mapped to a wordpress blog. I could do it because I had complete control over the nameservers.
However, i have recently moved to editdns.net's DNS hosting service, and have a major issue moving my DNS record there.
editdns.net doesn't allow root domains(like
xyz.com) to be a CNAME. It has to be an IP. I first thought it was a problem specific to editdns. Turns out that is actually an RFC violation to do so, and therefore blaming editdns is not the right thing to do. Here is the relevant reference.
I don't find an option in the admin interface to change the domain mapping to something else. Instead of
xyz.com, it would have been good to have
www.xyz.com atleast pointing here. But turns out that wordpress doesn't allow that.
I do not want any other subdomains like
blog.xyz.com. Even if I did the admin interface doesn't allow me to change the domain name.
Given all these issues, what would you advice me that I do?
