CNAME subdomain external hosted wordpress installation

So I've been trying to set up a wordpress blog which is hosted on a free hosting service to direct to a cname subdomain under It's hosted on x10hosting a free webshosting service (I may move to a paid service I'm primarily just trying to learn here).

The is actually hosted on Tumblr, so effectively I'm using two different hosting services..

I've created a blog cname entry but I'm not sure how to set this up to work properly on the hosting/wordpress end. Currently says "Domain document root not found" though it loads the correct site icon so I think at least one thing is working correctly.


I'm aware I can use a masked forwarding subdomain but I feel I may need full urls.
