    Hi, I have a blog site hosted on Bluehost, Now I want to change the domain. Currently the domain also from Bluehost. I am planning to register a new domain from Bluehost itself.
    So my question is, what all get affected by this move?
    * Followers comments and likes
    * Links within the posts.
    * Do I have to physically move anything?
    * Google AdSense
    * Any update to JetPack to be done?
    Any feedback is appreciated.

    You can export and import the content from the current domain to the new one and you will have the same all comments + posts.

    You should better keep the current domain working for a while so you can redirect all readers from current domain to new domain using JavaScript or plugin so your readers from current sites can aware the new domain.

    Remember add canonical meta tags to all your posts on current domain target to new domain so crawlers from search engine will index the posts on new domain instead.

    GA will not be affected if your GA account is a hosted account.

    You will have no problem with JetPack.

    This makes no sense if it’s the same physical hosting, just a name change.
