    Hi , recently made a new blog , I am thinking of buying a domain name and host pack and because I will have to pay for these I want to make certain .

    With a self hosted pack and domain I can use the same worpress software and add ons software ?
    Its basically the same as a free wordpress blog except its my domain name and hosting is this correct or are there differences ?
    and lastly with hosting I can have adds and ad sense on my blog ?

    thank you a ton

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

  2. Its basically the same as a free wordpress blog except its my domain name and hosting is this correct or are there differences ?

    It is virtually the same but with the self-hosted blog you have more possibilities, but you also have more responsibilities such as you have to do the installation and configuration, you have to do all the updating, troubleshooting, and backups, and if something goes wrong you have to fix it.

    and lastly with hosting I can have adds and ad sense on my blog ?

    Yes, you can have ads, but as with any "service" pay attention to, read, and understand the web hosts terms of service. Do keep in mind though that unless you get 1,000 hits per day or more, you will likely just pay for your web hosting and domain registration fees.

  6. Please don't post the same thing repeatedly in different threads; it just makes more work for the volunteers.

    Is your blog hosted here, or is it externally hosted? Please give us a link, starting with http, because the answer depends on the blog. For one thing, you can't upload external themes to a WordPress.com blog at all.
