Can i redirect my domain to wordpress.com using my own nameserver?

Even though this is a couple of years old, it's still out-of-scope and off-topic. WPSE is not geared to support WordPress.com questions. – Brian Fegter Aug 30 '12 at 20:59

If you don't want to redirect your users from example.com to example.wordpress.com, but really want example.com to be new domain name for your WordPress.com blog, you can buy Domain Mapping for $12 per year if you already have your own domain.

Sure. Just add 301 redirect rules using an htaccess file.

The question was about wordpress.com, there you can not edit the .htaccess file. – hakre Dec 24 '10 at 2:11
