    To start things off: I am running WordPress on my own computer. The router has the ports forwarded and I have DynDNS to change the IP whenever it does change.

    I set my domain to forward to "http://chiaro.kicks-ass.net" (the dyndns). I set the WordPress URL and Blog URL to this as well. The domain has masking on, so it looks like the original domain.

    When you use the domain, however, it changes to the original, "http://chiaro.kicks-ass.net", by itself! I tried changing Blog URL to the original domain, but it ended up failing. I tried changing the WordPress URL to the original domain, but the two locations kept redirecting to each other, endlessly.

    How can I get WordPress to just use the original domain, when the original domain is redirecting to the DynDNS hostname?
