    Allo all,

    After reading almost everything on the siten, I am still confused by the mapping process. 2 key questions:

    For domain mapping, WordPress requires to change the nameservers of the registrar to 3 names (ns1.wordpress.com,ns2.wordpress.com,ns3.wordpress.com), but my regristrar allows me to put only one nameserver. Can I take only one of the 3? More generally, can my domain point toward 3 URLS?

    Also, wordpress requires to delete all other nameserver, but I cannot delete the registrar Domain Nameserver. Same questions…. What can I do?

    Thanks a lot for your help

    You registrar can stay the same as wordpress doesn’t need to administrate the blog for this to work. What registrar are you using? I haven’t come across any that don’t have the ability to add in at least 2 nameservers. As well, it will be a great place to start in asking your registrar as well about this. Tell them the domain is hosted with wordpress.com and you need the nameservers to point to only their servers. I don’t have any of my domains under wordpress.com admin, but they almost all point to wordpress.com, so it will be a simple discussion with your registrar to fix this I think!

    Thanks for your answer. The registrar is calles European Domain Centre. It allows one to point to one adress (or IP) for each of the line bellow:
    Name Server
    Mail Exchanger
    A-record
    Web Alias
    Web forwarding

    Oups… I sent only half the post.

    So here come the questions: Do I need to point to each 3 wordpress names (ns1.wordpress.com,ns2.wordpress.com,ns3.wordpress.com) or are they all the same servers?
    In any case, which of the registrar (see previous post) should I change?… and to which of the 3 names?

    Difficult to get in touch with the registrar so thanks a lot for your help on all those matters
