I started my website with Squarespace, and while it's great for a static small-biz website, it's not working for a dynamic blog. I'd like to start a self-hosted WordPress blog but still keep the domain name as the same for both - www.cooksmarts.com. In my DNS manager, I've mapped my A Record to SS's IP address. How can I change it so that www.cooksmarts.com would take you to SS but www.cooksmarts.com/blog would take to WordPress blog?

I'd recommend creating a sub-domain blog.mysite.com and pointing the A Record (or possibly a cname) for it to an alternative server.
