I’d like to know if I upgrade to a premium package on wordpress.com and I die if the site can be set back to a std. free site? I have stage IV cancer so this is something that’s going to occur in the next 1-2 years and I’d like my site to be available after I pass away, just not sure what would be the best route to take. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
The blog I need help with is mikekenney.wordpress.com.
When an Upgrade is not paid, the site reverts – sometimes it seems the custom url stuff hangs around for a while
What part of the Upgrade package do you need?
For easiest access by your friends and such, leave the blog name alone – then they will not get used to a custom domain name and have trouble finding your site after the custom domain name expires
CSS – site would revert back to original look
If you have space upgrades or Videopress upgrade – when they expire you could not upload additional media and video – but the old media (pictures) and videos would remain and be able to be seen by your friends
auxclass – thank you that’s exactly the answer’s I was looking for and a solid reason to move my hosted site over to wordpress.com
You be welcome & good luck
When you move your site & map the domain name – you might think about setting the Primary Domain to the WordPress.COM address or make sure that you have a trusted person that will pay for the domain registration and domain mapping so people don’t get lost and not be able to find your blog
I will flag this for the staff to wade in also on the domain name – they are in a meetup for the company plotting how to rule the world or something :)
Also set the comments to close on a Post after some time – maybe 60 or 90 days – moderate comments, have a friend moderate the comments when you are no longer able to – with the close after a time – that will make their job go away after a while – they can after things are over – leave one last Post with comments open if they want
Several other people in your situation have had their blogs here – I think you are the 5th person I have helped like you
The support forum here is pretty good if you have more questions
