    Godaddy is painfully slow. I want to maintain my url (franceinfo.us) but move the blog management to wordpress.com.

    What are the pros & cons of this?
    What’s the easiest way to do it?
    I want ot move it to digitalbiblio.wordpress.com

    The blog I need help with is franceinfo.us.

    Follow these instructions if you already have a domain that you registered elsewhere, and you want to map that domain to your blog. http://support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/

    thanks for the info – I have other questions, too:

    Rather than a “redirect” is this a mapping?
    Will the references I have made online to franceinfo.us (on twitter, etc) still remain valid?

    Is is hard to go back to the blog on godaddy if I change my mind?

    It is a mapping. The internal links will still work. And the process to move back to Godaddy is the same as the process to come here, but backwards. It’s easy.
