Just bought new domain, have I done it correctly?

  1. I was I just bought upgrade to domain name

    I read instructions first, which said if I am already hosted on wordpress, not importing from anywhere else, then it should be simple and fine. Is this correct? Or should I have set up some way of transferring posts from my address to new domain? From what I read, it told me just to buy new domain, and set it as the Primary domain. So now I am scared that I've done something wrong. link is not working, but I've read that's normal, as can take 72 hours to activate, so that's not exactly why I'm panicked. I just want to know that I've upgraded correctly. Will my posts all show up at when it finally activates?

    Apologies if I sound stupid, help would be really appreciated

    The blog I need help with is

  2. Note: All I have done is buy domain upgrade, then set it as Primary domain.

  3. Ooh wow, ok it has just activated, so soon after me posting this. So I can set this as resolved.

  4. Ruth did your posts automatically transfer to your new domain? I was hesitant to purchase a domain for the same reasons

  5. Actually the name transfers.

    If you have now and you buy a domain say - then you map it to then anyone that goes to will see all the posts at - your posts stay at - and everyone just sees - but if someone types in they will still end up on your site.

    if you fail to renew domain and mapping then goes away and you are back where you started at

    good nuff? good luck
