Point a domain name managed at Netsol to my blog on WordPress
Hello, I have a free blog at wordpress, and own my domain name and manage DNS at network solutions. How do I point my URL (domain name) so that it directs to myblog.wordpress.com? I cant seem to find the answer.
The blog I need help with is mikesrange.wordpress.com.

I thought I could do something in DNS, maybe with domain forwarding or a CName? No?
Domain forwarding will not work as our .wordpress.com sites are not on permanent IP addresses. When the IP change the forwarded URLs will break.
OK thank you. So if I upgrade my membership, do they provide me a fixed IP or something?
If you purchase an upgrade domain mapping will result in a seamless reliable 301 redirect for all URLs for one year when the upgrade has to be renewed.

Geesh, $100 per year just so a name I have points to a WordPress blog. There’s got to be another way, I just need a CName to point to WordPresses DNS servers. I dont care if the final page says WordPress after the domain, I just want people to redirect from my domain to the blog. For that price I may as well make a landing page, with a blog hyperlink that points to my blog.worldpress.com. Unless there’s an easier, more sensible (and less expensive) way?
