transering wordpress.com blog to wordpress.org blog

  1. I want to move my blog from wordpress.com to wordpress.org. The question is : can I have the same domain name, that is taskylonea.com?

    The blog I need help with is taskylonea.wordpress.com.

  2. taskylonea.com is available for purchase. I would suggest that if you want it buy it quick before someone else does.

    You can not have a .org URL at taskylonea.wordpress.com., however you can get a site redirect upgrade (which takes people going from taskylonea.wordpress.com ro taskylonea.com so that you won't lose readers.

  3. Please tell me more specific because I don' t know a lot of things about internet. When I move from wordpress.com to wordpress.org I must do some things, right? There is a procedure, I know. But I don' to know when I will have be transferred to wordpress.org if can maintain the domain name.

  4. Why do you want to move to .org? If you don't know much about the internet you will have to learn a lot.

    Basically, for free with wordpress you get a blog on a subdomain of wordpress.com. Your blog is at http://taskylonea.wordpress.com/ .

    You can buy a domain like taskylonea.com without the wordpress.com and if you want you can buy a domain maping upgrade to make your WordPress.Com domain appear there.

    You can also go to a hosting service and have the domain map to a wordpress.org blog you install yourself. In this case if you want people who try to access the old http://taskylonea.wordpress.com/ site to be redirected to your new blog you can buy the site redirect upgrade.

    If you do want to transfer your blog to .org then this article may be helpful, though I wouldn't do it unless you are prepared to learn a lot about maintaining a site, applying upgrades, etc.

  5. Thank you so much for your help. I ' m thinking to add in my block adds. Affiliating. That's why I want to transfer.
