Do WordPress followers transition?

I am moving my blog to hosting with you. The followers I have accrued over the years, will their transition be seamless in receiving notices about posts and the like, or do I need to have them sign up in a different way to receive posts? Thanks

Hello Homest56, Thank you for contacting us about migrating followers. This process does not happen automatically, but it is certainly possible, and there is a workflow for it. The plugin you will want to use is called Jetpack. This plugin specializes in retaining the features in a self-hosted WordPress site. The Jetpack documentation has a full guide regarding how to migrate followers from a hosted site to a self-hosted site. They refer to this process as "Subscriber Migration". It basically involves setting up your self-hosted site first and then migrating your subscribers. Best, Christopher M.
