Is site redirect necesary for switching to self hosting?

  1. I'm probably going to be moving to a self hosting option pretty soon, I plan on keeping my current domain name so will there be any issue with broken link in search results? Will I need to purchase the site redirect addon to prevent that? Also will I need to do anything different with my domain name setup or as long as I continue to use the WordPress plugin for blogging will it still work fine? Thank you!

  2. A Site Redirect will redirect all your permalinks to your new website and will always work regardless of the software you are running behind your site. Without a Site Redirect upgrade all the links in search results will go towards your old site. You can also decide to add a static front page to your site to announce visitors that you've moved your site to another URL/address.
