Why can't I FTP?

  1. I bought a domain for my blog through wordpress, and I want to be able to customize the look (skin) with PHP and CSS elements. But I found out after purchasing the domain that WordPress "doesn't allow" this. You can do CSS and images, but not skins with PHP.

    A friend of mine did her blog with a custom skin of the sort that I want to do; I found out that she has her domain hosted elsewhere. So now that I've bought the domain through WordPress, is it possible to transfer it somewhere so I can FTP custom skins?

    If yes, how do I do that?

  2. You need to wait, I believe, 60 days before transferring a domain, then it's a simple matter of repointing it.

    You can indeed edit with CSS, although it's a separate upgrade. All the details are in the FAQ, if it's something you'd be interested in.
