What if i register a new domain ?

  1. If i register a new domain, will my site’s old WordPress.com address (such as yourgroovysite.wordpress.com) be reserved and work forever with my WordPress blogsite ? or will the old WordPress address expire after a certain period of time ?

    If i register a new domain as a WordPress upgrade, can i create one or more email accounts using that new domain via WordPress ?

    Thank you,
    James

    The blog I need help with is hellenicpostmontreal.wordpress.com.

  3. Every domain mapping upgrade is for one year only when it must be renewed prior to it's expiration date.

    WordPress.com does not provide an email a service with domains. You have to use these workarounds to add email service http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/add-email/

  4. Thank you ... but if i maintain registration of new domain from year to year, will my site’s old WordPress.com address (such as yourgroovysite.wordpress.com) be reserved and work forever with my WordPress blogsite ? or will the old WordPress address expire after a certain period of time ?

  5. WordPress Support reads:

    "Your old address will still work, but we will automatically redirect traffic from your old address to your new one."
