    So, in essence, if I pay the 85 dollars there still is no guarantee that the site will be back up and online under ehssafetynews.com today?

    Also if reverted back to ehssafetynews.wordpress.com all all of my 1400+ posts on my blog go back to the ehssafetynews.wordpress.com address even if I posted then under the ehssafetynews.com address.

    In short will all of my posts be reverted back to the original ehasafetynews.wordpress.com address?

    Yes. See what I posted above.

    It takes 24 to 72 hours for change to reach the far corners of the internet for new domain mapping – changes usually start after a few hours but things will be a bit fluid while the internet updates –

    If I were you I would renew the domain name – that keeps all the old bookmarks working that your visitors had will work again

    Yes. Domain mapping is not the same as hosting. With domain mapping you are still hosted on wordpress.com so in fact all of your posts were technically posted to wp.com. Mapping is like a street sign on the internet directing browsers to your site sort like saying: “Hey! ehasafetynews is over that way!

    Your readers will have to use the ehasafetynews.wordpress link if you don’t have the domain mapping. But your posts and all are still there.

    I don’t have 85 dollars to spare, I was doing this to brand myself in my job search and not to make money..

    If it takes a few weeks for the internet to find all of my posts and re-index them under the ehssafetynews.wordpress.com address, then I’ll have to wait and readers will have to search the site.

    Please revert it back to ehssafetynews.wordpress.com and if you could use the 13 dollars I paid and credit it towards my upcoming video upload upgrade, I’d appreciate that.

    If you can do it.

    I’ve removed the non-functioning domain-mapping upgrade and reset your primary domain to ehssafetynews.wordpress.com.

    I’ve put $13 in credits on your account toward your next purchase.

    Just me know if you need anything else.

    Thanks Kathryn for all of your help as well as the others. It’s working under the old name. I guess I have to wait and will lose readers until all of my posts get renamed and then remapped!

    Thank you! :)

    One last question………I see the site has a secure https address Will it remain that way? Like this: https://ehssafetynews.wordpress.com/

    I need to correct all of my links and email signatures if so!

    If you could let me know that would be great!

    Hi there – your address will work either on a secure connection (https) or non-secure connection (http). I suggest you leave your address as http://ehssafetynews.wordpress.com/ when providing it to folks since a non-secure connection is faster.

    Right now it will not work without a secure https connection……

    Do you happen to have any browser extensions forcing a secure connection?

    It works fine for me at http://ehssafetynews.wordpress.com.
