    I’m new to wordpress and an Australian blogger. Hence I’d like .au attached to my blog. I’d like to have my blog at a subdomain of my website http://www.blog.lizzyc.com.au.
    I tried wordpress.org but it was beyond my user ability and I purchused the domain mapping but realised I can’t add my word press blog to my subdomain. I don’t want to purchuse the hosting as well because it is only .com addresses. Do I have any options if I want to host at my subdomain rather than http://www.lizzyc.wordpress.com.

    I am only a beginner so any help would be appreciated. If this isn’t possible I think it could be a good suggestion.

    Other than this, word press is great so far!

    You can buy the domain mapping upgrade for $10 a year and have http://blog.lizzyc.com.au connected with your WP.com blog if you want. I don’t understand why you’d think you couldn’t. You can’t use http://lizzyc.com.au/blog, but that’s not what you want to use anyway.

    Thanks for your response raincoaster. I did purchase the domain mapping but according to the faq I have to delete existing name servers and replace them with word press name servers. This meant deleating the name servers for my webpage at http://www.lizzyc.com.au, which would affect my homepage as http://www.blog.lizzyc.com.au is a subdomain of http://www.lizzyc.com.au. My hosting provider suggested using A report??
    Any help would be appreciated.
    cheers,

    For a subdomain you would use a CNAME setting as explained in the FAQ
