The first post on my first professional blog.
Going through the process of understanding DNS redirections and the differences between CNAME and A records was a little tiresome. I’ve done this a couple times before with different sites, but unlike before, I am using namecheap.com for my domain registration and azure as my content hoster for the WordPress installation.
I managed to successfully forward from my domain name to the azure website by setting up “URL Forwarding” for the Host Names “@” and “www” to the Azure Website URL as a record type “CNAME”.
An initial problem I had was that the forward only lasted for the initial webpage because all links led to the azure website. This was easily solved by going into the WordPress settings and changing “WordPress Address” and “Site Address” to my anthonyngu.com URL.
