    Hi there,

    I’ve just gone self hosted with wordpress.org and wondered what would happen to all of my subscribers and followers? I’ve directed the nameservers over to my new host and they are pointing correctly, however I now have zero subscribers.

    Is there any way I can import my previous subscribers, over to my new self-hosted site? To clarify, I purchased a domain name via wordpress.com a few months ago, so that hasn’t changed and I also have Jetpack installed on the .org installation.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
    The site I need help with is http://fivesafellowship.com

    The blog I need help with is fivesafellowship.com.

    Hello there,
    Staff can transfer your email subscribers for you. Followers using the Reader cannot be transferred. What you must do is:
    1. install and activate JetPack (done!);
    2. post both of the URLs into this forum thread.
