I have bought my own domain for my small business website – http://yourseachangelife.com – and created a directory for it at my Webhost account, and uploaded the theme & a couple of plug-ins.
I've entered the WP DNS at my webhost account.
I've been using the wordpress.com Dashboard to create & edit content, as that's easier for me than editing HTML files.
I had assumed that wp.COM + self-hosting = the most flexibility, but now I find I can't use plugins and it seems I can't do ecommerce.
Should I have used wp.ORG and is it too late to change now I have content?
I have paid for the WP's mapping to my domain.
I think I'm really confused... I guess I'm wondering if I'm really self-hosted?
Also wondering if I can be self-hosted and still use the WP Dashboard for content creation.
I have read WP documentation, but maybe I've not understood what it mean.
Thanks for any help you can give
