Do you want to actually host the site yourself, or just make it accessible via your own domain? –  Bart van Heukelom Feb 20 '11 at 21:00

If you're moving to another host with Wordpress already setup, you can export your blog from Wordpress.com and use the Import functionality under Tools->Import on the other end.

Yes if you mean a redirect from mywebsite.com to mywebsite.wordpress.com. No, not an easy one-step procedure if you want to switch to self-hosted wordpress. Exporting and importing the data is the easy part, if you use any plugins or themes. But it works fine in principle.

If you don't mind keeping the site with wordpress.com, you can just get the domain name added to your account. It costs http://en.wordpress.com/products/
