Domain Mapping Testers

We need some testers for the domain mapping feature of WordPress.com. This probably only applies to you if you’re tech savvy enough to already own a domain and know how to change the info on it. (For now, when we actually launch it’ll be much easier and have documentation.)

The first 8 people to comment get the feature for free, but to qualify you…

  • Must already own a domain.
  • The nameservers must be set to ns1.wordpress.com and ns2.wordpress.com

Domain parking allows your blog to be something like example.com instead of example.wordpress.com.

Leave a comment with the domain you want to park. I’ll check the whois for the nameserver information and if it’s correct you get to be a domain parking beta testing. :)

    I am willing to try this.

    http://www.morefunnyjokes.com/ is available.

    I have removed the forwarding and updated the DNS.

    If you can map morefunnyjokes.wordpress.com to that, I will give it a workout.

    Thank you,

    Hi! I’m interested in taking part in this beta, if possible. My web domain is stereoroid.com, which I would redirect to stereoroid.wordpress.com. I just made the DNS change at my registrat, a few minutes ago, so it may take a little while to come in to effect. My site is almost totally WordPress based anyway, so this sounds like a really good idea to me.

    Thanks,

    While it sounds good, it doubt that you will be offering MX,TXT, and other dns record type things if your using a domain name for stuff other than just blogging.

    It seems a bit of waste to use a domain name just for blogging imho, more information might be nice – no is my gut first feeling here

    Oops, seems like I’m number 9. :/

    BTW. Why do you need the whole domain delegated to you? I think there should be possibility to map just a single hostname to WordPress.com’s IP address and not to delegate the whole domain. That’s how e.g. http://www.jogger.pl (Polish blog service) works.

    E.g. I’d like http://www.marcoos.com to be my blog’s address, but I’d still like something.marcoos.com to map to some other host.

    *sigh* I’d put ads on my page for WordPress if it meant getting a domain and hosting. At the moment, I cannot afford a domain or the ability to host it here. I know it can be pretty cheap to get domains; but just trust me when I say that, at the moment, this is still not an option for me.

    I wish WordPress had a “broke blogger” plan for this…..

    Hi,

    I was one of the early requestors, #13 above, but I haven’t heard anything back from you guys. I’ve now added my old DNS servers back to the domain registration as #3 and #4, leaving the WordPress DNS servers as #1 and #2. That may allow people to, you know, access my existing site.

    Is there some way we can get a “yes or no” answer as to whether we qualify for this experiment? I know it’s not polite to “look a gift horse in the mouth”, but my site has been DOWN for 2 days, after I made the DNS changes you requested. I know it’s a beta, and I have a failback plan, it’s just that changing a domain’s DNS servers has the effect of making that site inaccessible if the target DNS servers refuse to resolve the names, as is happening now.

    Thanks,
