    If I use my own domain name, will all visitors have to do a redirect? I’m wondering about this because the directions for switching to my own domain say that joyfullinens.wordpress.com will still work, but visitors will be redirected. With my own domain name, joyfullinens.com, will they land on the site first click? I think I would lose visitors if everyone had to click to redirect or wait to be redirected.
    I’m new to this, so appreciate all the help I can get. Many thanks in advance!

    I don’t understand how to use this support~~when I clicked submit it said I need to enter some content. My question is above, I copied and pasted. But I’m pretty sure I’m not following the right procedure here. This is my question: If I use my own domain name, will all visitors have to get to my blog by doing a redirect from the word press address?
