moving from wordpress.com to wordpress. org

  1. Hi guys,

    I've been going crazy for the last several days trying to figure out how to solve my problem. Simply put, I want to move my wordpress.com website to a self-hosted wordpress.org blog. I purchased the domain and mapping through wordpress.com. Truthfully, I find the wordpress. org software very difficult but I'm willing to learn and get through it so I can have a self-hosted site. I recently purchased hosting with JustHost, but I kept reading negative reviews about it so I cancelled my account (20 bucks down the drain). Actually I keep reading negative reviews about each hosting I consider. I'm now considering 1 and 1 since many of the people I know recommend it.

    I just want to know how I do this? WP says that I have to wait 60 days before I can transfer to another registrar, is that the same as transferring hosts? My brain is about to explode. Help!
