Does the guided transfer include sourcing & purchasing a domain host

  1. I would like to go over to .org from .com. I have read all the articles and it just seems way to confusing. does the guided transfer included sourcing a domain host. I have two domains (one with wordpress.com and another with Yola) Can the Yola domain name be transferred to WordPress.org, and can the guided transfer take care of that (as I would have no idea how to do that). Also if I purchase a customised theme (such as Photocrati) does the guided transfer install that new theme to my site. If I use the guided transfer... what if anything am I personally responsible for, and what are they responsible for.

  2. No, you will need to direct the domain yourself, but our Guided Transfer team will do their best to answer any questions you have.

    Theme purchased on WordPress.com are only good for WordPress.com. You would need to re-purchase the theme direct from its designer.

  3. Thank you for the reply.. however that answered almost none of my questions. I understand the wordpress.com theme will not be transferred, however what I was asking is... if I purchase a new wordpress.org theme i.e. Photocrati will the transfer team install it as part of the transfer?

    I own the domain name tracielouisephotography.net which I purchased through wordpress.com.... can I kept it? I know absolutely nothing about domain hosting and everything I have read on the subject goes completely over my head.

    I also own the domain name tracielouisephotography.com which I purchased through Yola (a web building site) and would probably prefer to keep that name and shut down the Yola site in favour of Worpress.org

    I really want to come over to WordPress.org, but have read all the articles and it scares the crap out of me. I tried WordPress.org when I first started blogging almost a year ago.... couldn't get it work, couldn't understand it, and so switched to WordPress.com.

    I even signed up for blue host and their so-called one click install system. Couldn't make head nor tails out of it.

    I need LOTS of help.... but before I go ahead and pay the guided transfer fee, I want to know that they are going to be able to help me.

    Sure, we can help you with that, but it's actually super-easy to do on your own.

    I own the domain name tracielouisephotography.net which I purchased through wordpress.com.... can I kept it?

    Of course, we'll help you point the domain to your new hosting provider.

    Working with WordPress.org is pretty easy once you get the hang of it, and each Guided Transfer comes with 2 weeks of one-on-one support from our Guided Transfer team, so it's a great way to get started.
