    I want to create a domain but I have some doubts. Where will I manage my domains, subdomains, e-mails, etc? Can I create some e-mail boxes in wordpress with my domain? will I need a inbox of another service or this service exists in WordPress? Can I move my domain to another company to manage it if necessary?

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

    If you buy a custom domain through WordPress.COM – you manage the domain name here – you don’t need to buy your domain name here if you want – you can use another registrar – either way you then add Domain Mapping to map the custom domain name to your blog so the custom domain name is displayed when someone visits your blog

    WordPress.COM does not do email hosting, only blogs are hosted here – you can add custom email to go with your custom domain name – many ways to do that

    If you move your blog to another host and your custom domain name is registered here – you can either change where the name servers are pointing to your new host with the domain name staying here or you can move (transfer) the registration of your custom domain name to another registrar and host
