mydomain.com is registered with GoDaddy. I wish to host my Tumblr blog on this domain with Nearly Free Speech hosting.
My active nameservers at GoDaddy already point to my authoritative ones at Nearly Free Speech which is working. However I'm baffled as to how to get my correct configuration to point to my Tumblr.
Preferably I'd like
(A) my domain
http://mydomain.com to host the blog and have
http://www.mydomain.com redirect also to
If this is too difficult my next preference is
(B) to have
http://www.mydomain.com host the blog whilst
http://mydomain.com redirects to
My third preference is to have
(C) a sub-domain like
http://tumblr.mydomain.com to host the blog and I guess have
http://www.mydomain.com both redirect to it.
I've tried having two aliases
www.mydomain.com pointing to my permanent Nearly Free Speech IP at
mydomain.nfshost.com and when I try to add:
(1) an A record pointing
mydomain.com to the IP 188.8.131.52 as per Tumblr's instructions it tells me I already have the bare domain as an alias so I cant do that.
(2) the A record on the
I can do this with either
www.mydomain.com set as an alias or not.
But when I tried this with
mydomain.com set as the canonical name the result when visiting either
www.mydomain.com was both of them continually redirecting to each other until an error was thrown.
So I was wondering if there is a ninja that could save me some hair-pulling and tell me the correct way to config A, or else B, or else C.
