My site is currently hosted on Tumblr. I am looking to transfer it to wordpress and recently purchased hosting from bluehost. I was wondering if it is possible to install WordPress in the root (or any subdirectory for that matter) while maintaining a custom domain name for my tumblr site.
So far, all I did was change the nameservers (on GoDaddy) to point towards my new hosting. (I didn't even install wordpress yet). I noticed that this caused my custom tumblr domain to now point towards my default hosting page instead of towards the .tumblr.com website...Is it possible to work on setting up hosting/wordpress in the root directory while still forwarding the same domain to my tumblr site? Or do I need to set up wordpress on a seperate domain and then migrate it? I would like to avoid that extra step if possible...
