Moving From GoDaddy To WordPress.com

  1. Hi folks. OK, bear with me.

    I have a domain registered with Inmotion Hosting for http://squarise.com. This domain is currently mapped to a fairly standard WordPress blog hosted at GoDaddy, aimed at film and TV reviews and articles. After a few weeks on their unbearably slow servers, I am looking to move the site to another host, before dedicating any more time to actual content.

    WordPress.com seems like the logical choice, really; dedicated to WordPress, and already hosting sites far more demanding than ours. However, I was wondering what would be the easiest way of moving my existing site to WordPress.com hosting?

    - I already have a domain, so I don't need to register a new one. I understand I need to upgrade to get the ability to map a domain name, correct?
    - My current site uses the Genesis theme framework; while there's no real need to stick to it, will the previous use of it affect my migration?
    - The site uses a butt-load of plugins, mostly for ease of linking to other sites within articles; will these same themes be accessible through WP.com?
    - Can I migrate all the registered contributors on the site as well, or will people need to re-register?

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is squarise.com.
