Can I upload a custom theme to my WordPress.com site?

  1. Can i upload genesis framework and themes to my wordpress.com site? if not how do i change to a wordpress.org and have my own url? I already have a host and domain. I just want to switch to wordpress.
    Blog url: http://blackbeardevelopment.wordpress.com/

  2. Themes cannot be uploaded to WordPress.com. WordPress.com is a hosted service and you do not have FTP access. That's a feature of self-hosted blogs through WordPress.org. You can learn more about this in our support documentation. We do offer over 100 gorgeous themes which you can browse in our Themes Showcase.

    If you require a custom theme, you might be interested in a self-hosted (WordPress.org) installation. You can learn more about the differences here.

    We have hosting recommendations at http://get.wp.com/hosting/ along with instructions to move your blog at http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#moving-to-wordpress-org .

    We also offer a Guided Transfer upgrade - we'll move everything over for you and get you all setup with your self-hosted WordPress.org installation.
