WordPress.com blog transfer to wordPress self-hosted

  1. I have a wordPress.com blog but I am getting a self-hosted one (because the wordpress.com has some limitations).
    Is it possible to keep my blogĀ“s name and to import the old one?
    Blog url: http://marcolamas.wordpress.com/

  2. No you cannot keep the .wordpress.com URL. You hire a web host, purchase a domain, set up a wordpress.org install, install a wordpress.org theme and plugins. Then you can export the content out of the wordpress.com blog and import it into a wordpress.org install.

  3. Timethief, thank you so much!!

  4. Also to transfer your blog to a self hosted, you could also use Guided Transfer.
