Technical Question

So I bought the rights to my site name–www.arkhangel.com. What I need to know, before I pull out whatever hair I’ve got left, is just how I map this site–arkhangel.blogs.com–to the new site.

Anyone who knows, either drop me a comment or email me. Thank you!

  1. That’s a bit of a tricky question. Basically, you would have to “tell” the DNS servers of blogs.com that arkhangel.blogs.com should actually point at http://www.arkhangel.com. Then you would have to transfer your MT installation and all the content.

    Perhaps better would be to keep your blog at the current address (I’m sure you have better things to do than move blogs) and point http://www.arkhangel.com at arkhangel.blogs.com.

    That way, people could still type in “www.arkhangel.com” but they would end up at your blogs.com address. Not as neat, but far simpler.

    Whomever your registrar for http://www.arkhnangel.com is should provide you with the ability to redirect requests (I use namesecure and it has a Web interface for this).

    Does that help any?
