I know this is 101 level stuff but I am a developer, and I'm admittedly bad at the name server element of my profession. I am trying to mask the domain so that instead of going to developerugly.tumblr.com it still shows www.developerugly.com... I currently have a URL record for both the developerugly.com and www.developerugly.com... I tried ur sing an A record to point at tumblr's IP, but it never worked correctly... The IP went to tumblr's default page, not mine... Please help!
You need to setup a webserver that accepts requests for
There's also many third-party services that'll do this for you; Google should provideth.
Finally, there's the distinct possibility that tumblr allows you to point custom domains at it, you just need to tell tumblr about the domain and what it's supposed to display. I don't use tumblr, so I can't tell you if that's possible or how it could be done.
