    I recently started my blog and Im very excited about it. Im looking at having nearly 1000 hits per month. My question is do I need a host to use downloaded themes and plugins? Also what are the benefits of having a server? And given my situation, what would be the best server to go with?

    Thank You for any help.

    The blog I need help with is 16bitaudit.com.

  2. The free hosted WordPress.com blog linked to your username has no blogger created content. Please post an active link starting with http:// to the blog in question.

  4. Thanks for the link to your free hosted WordPress.com blog. Please read this entry so you are aware of the difference between free hosted WordPress.com blogs and WordPress.org installs. http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.COM blogs like the one linked to your username and we cannot install individual plugins or third party themes into them. Those found on the internet are for WordPress.ORG installs which run on different software.

    If you wish to have complete control over a blog, the ability to upload themes and plugins, and to edit themes and templates then your option is to hire a web host and get a free software install from WordPress.ORG and self host it.

  5. I'm sorry about the typos. :( I meant to type: "For moving to wordpress.org see here >" above.
