New domain name — some questions

  1. Apologies if this has already been answered; I couldn't see it anywhere though.

    My blog is at http://www.onewayphotoblog.wordpress.com
    I am thinking of buying a new domain name though WordPress (say http://www.onewayphotoblog.com). If so...

    When people type my original URL (ie. with the 'wordpress' bit on it), will it take them to the new address? What about people who read my blog through feeds or things like Google Reader?

    Also, will all my blog stats, comments, drafts etc etc remain in place or start again from scratch? Eg if someone who has previously had a comment approved makes a new comment, will I have to approve it again because my site name has changed? Will my total stats so far start from zero or will they continue from where they left off?

    In short, is it a seamless transfer or will it just open up a can of worms and create more work for me?

    Thanks in advance

  2. None of the above are an obstacle - no changes needed.
