    Normally you would do this by adding rudolfpietersma.nl as aliasdomain to the website rudolfpietersma.wordpress.com. But as you most likely dont run the server rudolfpietersma.wordpress.com you wont be able to do it that way. If wordpress allows you to use custom domain names, then point the dns cname or A-Record to their servers.

    Not clear yet.
    What CNAME or A-record should I use?

    It should show this url in the address bar:rudolfpietersma.nl
    It should show the content of: rudolfpietersma.wordpress.com

    Code:
    rudolfpietersma.nl. CNAME rudolfpietersma.wordpress.com.
    But in the rudolfpietersma.wordpress.com vhost configuration, there must also be a
    Code:
    ServerAlias rudolfpietersma.nl
    line (if the server is running Apache).

    Tnx for your message.
    I don't have access to the wordpress.com server.

    I created an Iframe, but this is not the most nice solution.
    Isn't there another solution for it? I see it many times that it forwards the site but doens't update the url in the address bar?

    Rudolf.

    This requires that you add a alias directive to the target website as falko explained.

    OK clear.
    I will keep it as iframe than.

    Any tips for use with iframe?
