Move free blog to paid site

  1. We want to move the free blog we have to a new paid website (both on wordpress). We need
    1) the till now staff not to be lost
    2) simple site, not blog
    3) the same or similar way to send messages
    3) use passwords in order to send messages

  2. No contents of your wordpress.com blog will be lost if your choose to export the contents out of the blog into an xml file. Your own your blog contents and can move them to which everpaid hosting that you so choose.
    Dashboard -> Manage -> Export

    If you choose the other wordpress option then you will find that exporting wordpress.com blog contents into an xml file and then importing that file into a free template downloaded from http://wordpress.org can be accomplished with ease.
