domain hosting and them upload

  1. I am trying to host a domain name from namehceap.com. Then I want to upload a theme from studiopress.com and I am not seeing the option to do so. How do I do this?

    The blog I need help with is dailyshreddotcom.wordpress.com.

  2. We do not have FTP access to free hosted WordPress.com blogs and we not able to upload third party themes.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/ftp-access/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/adding-new-themes/

    The only themes you can use on a free hosted WordPress.com blog are those found here > Appearance > Themes and showcased here > http://wordpress.com/themes/ We cannot access and edit any templates underlying our themes. Only Staff can edit as every blog wearing the same theme is using the same template.

    Unless you are prepared to pay $500 per month for an Enterprise account or even more for a VIP account, there is no upgrade you can purchase that changes this at WordPress.COM.

    To upload themes you need to hire a web host and set up a WordPress.ORG install. http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  3. hey time thief,

    I m new to this, I purchased a theme from themeforest. I am a basic wordpress user.

    Do I have to upgrade to pro before, I can install the theme? because i can t see the install theme tab.

    Thanks

  4. There is no way to use that theme on a free hosted wordpress.com blog.
    There is not upgrade you can buy and use it on any WordPress.com blog.
    Either return it for a refund, if stay here at WordPress.com.
    Or hire a web host and set up your own WordPress.org install and use it.
    There are no other options.

  5. oh man :(

    so i have to choose from what ever wordpress "premium" has on offer

    Thanks lesson learnt the expensive way.

    Where can i learn about setting up my own WordPress.org, i heard about FTP?

  6. Where can i learn about setting up my own WordPress.org

    We don't help with that. We don't help with anything to do with WordPress.ORG http://wordpress.org/ here at WordPress.COM.

  7. I thought you were sister companies.

    thanks regardless

  8. Sister companies - different software - different support issues - the software works different in many ways and here we don't install anything - the staff take care of that as well as upgrading the software
