Transferring to WordPress from another hosting provider

  1. Will my email address (which is connected to my already-purchased URL) be affected by the change in the hosting plan of my website?

    Can I upgrade to a higher-value WordPress package at any time? How will this work, given the amount is billed yearly?

    I currently have NameSafe and Domain Privacy with another provider - are these included in the WordPress hosting package?

    The blog I need help with is melinatheo.wordpress.com.

    No email hosting will not be affected by it, as you have your email hosted, just make sure they are still in place. WordPress provides Hosting of your Website, if you would like to have Email service, here is suggestion from WordPress for Email Choosing a Provider for Email

    Can I upgrade to a higher-value WordPress package at any time? How will this work, given the amount is billed yearly?
    Yes, you can easily upgrade to higher Plans
    As per your convenience, you just need to navigate to your Plans section and Upgrade, you will just need to pay the difference only.
    Like if you move from Personal to Premium only the difference will show up when you try to Update.

    I currently have NameSafe and Domain Privacy with another provider - are these included in the WordPress hosting package?
    You cannot Transfer domains to WordPress Domain Transfer to WordPress
    The option you have is Map Your Existing Domain
