Hi All

My question
If you have a site which has say 50 backlinks to it eg

www.mysite.somefreehost. com

and you then register a domain for it (and and point the DNS to the old site), so it is now

www.mysite. com

Then are the old backlinks still valid?
Would it appear as two sites in google now,
if google already had :

www.mysite.somefreehost. com in its database

and then www.mysite. com appeared.?

My head hurts now...
Thanks to anyone who can enlighten me : )

Most probably but depends on how things are arranged by your hosting service.

Yes but I think there are ways around this in Webmaster Tools.

My head hurts

I had similar problems a while back, I ended up moving the site to paid hosting with the company that managed the domain.
