Linking addresses already owned

  1. I have a friend who purchased the rights to several addresses. If she gets a WordPress site can she link them the way I do with my premium .com page and still get analytics?

  2. We do not know exactly which so-called rights you referring to. And we do not know why your friend not logged in here and taking care of her own affairs?

    See Google Analytics for WordPress.com Business sites http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2015/01/29/google-analytics-for-wordpress-com-business-sites/ There is no alternative when it comes to wordpress.COM hosted blogs. You either purchase the Business upgrade http://store.wordpress.com/plans/business/ for $299 US per year or you don't have access to Google Analytics.

  3. Important Notes Before Upgrading http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/

    WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG are completely separate and have different username accounts, logins, features, run different versions of some themes with the same names, and have separate support documentation and separate support forums. Read the differences here http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    WordPress.com provides free blogs and hosts them free of charge. There are no bandwidth charges. All WordPress.com blogs come with 3000 megabytes (~3 GBs) of space for storing uploaded files and images. Free features are listed here https://en.wordpress.com/features/

    See here for details of all 3 plans http://store.wordpress.com/bundles/ offered by WordPress.com.
    Premium bundle details http://store.wordpress.com/plans/premium/
    Business bundle details http://store.wordpress.com/plans/business/

    Note that each upgrade bundle applies to a single blog only and is for a single year only when it is due to be renewed.

    We all pay in full for every upgrade at the time of purchase. Make sure you read the comparison very closely do you know exactly what the restrictions and limitations on WordPress.COM blogging are: http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    You must be logged in as Admin http://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/#administrator under the exact same username account that registered the blog to access the blog's dashboard and purchase upgrades at > Dashboard> Store > My Upgrades
    https://en.support.wordpress.com/my-upgrades/

    Your billing history will be at Dashboard > Store > Billing History
    https://en.support.wordpress.com/billing-history/

    Your only options for payment are found here http://en.support.wordpress.com/payment/

    In order to map to a domain URL one must have an underlying .wordpress.com sub-domain blog to map from, and the domain name you desire must be available for purchase, or you must already own the domain URL.

    All that changes when you are domain mapping is the URL and nothing else. The content stays exactly where it is. What domain mapping does its create a seamless transfer between the underlying .wordpress.com blog URLs to the new domain URLs no matter where they are on the internet. Visitors who click the underlying .wordpress.com blog URLs will be seamlessly redirected to the exact same content under the new domain URLs.

    See here for mapping an existing domain that you already own http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/

    See here if you already have a website you don’t want to affect, and you want to add a blog to it under a subdomain (for example, blog.yourgroovydomain.com) see here http://support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-subdomain/
