I have been using WordPress.com for over a year and now want to make the move to WordPress.org. I know about exporting the file, etc., but here's the thing: my blog has it's own custom domain name, lizraelupdate.com, and I've had domain mapping from lizraelupdate.wordpress.com to that domain.
So if I get the WordPress.org set up at lizraelupdate.com - how will that work with all those files transferring over?
Do I still need to pay for WordPress.com's domain mapping in that case, since all the posts are listed under lizraelupdate.com/post-name already?
Or does it all automatically transfer over to .org, and lizraelupdate.wordpress.com is just an empty site?
