  2. Your blog is still hosted here on WordPress.com even though you have mapped your own domain name.

    Important Notes Before Upgrading

    Advertising: While a blog must have a mapped domain in order to qualify for WordAds, the Domain Mapping Upgrade does not otherwise permit advertising on your blog.
    Same Terms of Service: The Domain Mapping Upgrade does not permit the use of any kind of prohibited code or upload additional themes or plugins. With the upgrade, your blog will still be hosted here at WordPress.com, which means that you will not have FTP access to your files and you will still be required to abide by our Terms of Service.

    AdSense, Yahoo, Chitika, TextLinkAds, and other third-party advertising is not allowed here at WordPress.com.

  3. Thanks for a quick reply.

    One more thing regarding the word "Your blog is still hosted here on WordPress.com even though you have mapped your own domain name."

    So where my blog should be hosted to? Do I needs to spend more $ for the same.
    What I have to do for " FTP access" or add new plugins...

  4. You need to be hosted on another host such as Blue Host, Laughing Squid etc. You can find a list of hosts over at WordPress.ORG as well as instructions on how to hire a host and move the content.

  5. You should learn about the different flavors of WordPress.

    Wp.com is a shared platform: we are all hosted here without charge; in exchange we abide by the rules and the powers that be test software on us.

    WordPress.ORG means you would pay a company to host your blog (provide you a connection to the internet). Then you can use the free software from wp.ORG to make your site function.

    Here are details:
