Moving blog from .wordpress.com to .com

    Hi, i have another question about moving a website from ".wordpress.com" to ".com". In this page "http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/#get-started" I read something that i don't really understand in this lines: "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.".
    In my blog I used a child of this theme "http://wordpress.org/themes/icy", I modified some CSS files following mi preferences and I installed some plugins from wordpress.com.
    If I move the blog I will lose the theme and all the plugins that I have installed?
    Could I get some clarification on these issues?

    Thanks
    Andrea Vassallo

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you'll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It'll help people to answer your question.

    I should correct a mistake written previously. The site of departure is as follows:

    http://davidemasera.altervista.org/

  4. You are misunderstanding. You have a WordPress.ORG blog. Do not read the support documents for WordPress.COM blogs; they do not apply to you.

    If you move that here you will lose the theme, all the customizations, and all the plugins.
