I am considering buying a domain in the near future, and I have a question.
Lets say I buy a domain on WordPress. Does that mean that I am self-hosted? Because I don't want that. And if I buy a domain name on WordPress, will the new .com site lead to my current .wordpress.com blog automatically without additional fees?
I also want to buy the Private Domain Registration which is 8 dollars. Do I have to buy the Private Domain Reg. BEFORE I buy the domain? And for the Private Domain Reg. Is it permanent(does it ever expire)?
The blog I need help with is courtlinenews.wordpress.com.
