Want to buy a domain
Well, My blog URL is wehavescience.wordpress.com, a lot of people know this URL, if I buy a domain, like wehavescience.com, what will happen if someone search for wehavescience.wordpress.com? It will be redirect to my new domain or not?
The blog I need help with is wehavescience.wordpress.com.
if you buy wehavescience.com AND map it to your blog here then both URL’s will work and search engines will after a while just send traffic to wehavescience.com – all the old bookmarks will work forever
The reason one purchases domain mapping is so when their .wordpress.com blog links are clicked anywhere on the internet they are seamlessly directed to the same content under the domain URLs. See http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/

After you make the domain mapping purchase here > Dashboard > Store > My Upgrades and do the set up it can take between 24 – 72 hours for domain name propagation to take place throughout the internet. You can view the DNS changes here > http://www.whatsmydns.net/ What’s important during that stage is to be patient.
Actually, if I buy a domain like blabla.com, automatically if I search for blabla.wordpress.com will be redirected to blabla.com or I need to pay something? I didn’t get it well.
When you create your WordPress.com blog, we create a site address for you, such as example.wordpress.com:
You can also register a custom domain, such as yourgroovydomain.com. Then, when visitors arrive, they’ll see your custom domain in their browser’s address bar instead of the original example.wordpress.com site address:
Note that example.wordpress.com will still work, but all of your traffic will be redirected to yourgroovydomain.com.
I just need to buy a domain, right?
Well, I just bought a domain! ;) hihi, so, when I try to go to wehavescience.com, the browser says it didn’t find the site.
Do I need to wait a time for it works?
