Wordpress.com VS WordPress.org

  1. I want to start a new blog but am confused with WordPress.com vs WordPress.org. I want my blog to have it's own domain name, so, is it better to create a free WordPress.com blog and then upgrade to register a domain and host with them? Or create a domain at Godaddy and apply the WordPress.org stuff to it? I created a sample blog just to play around with themes and I am having a lot of trouble with the limited options. I want to be able to have control of text colour, font, background colors, menus, etc. If I upgrade to hosting with WordPress.com, don't I have to keep buying options like font and full css control? What is your opinion? Thanks for any help.

  2. You can have all these on WordPress.com too. Read here: http://wordpress.com/features/

  3. Yes, but changing fonts and managing the CSS is what I'm looking for. Those features are $30/yr, plus the domain which is $17/yr. Is it worth paying for those to keep my hosting on wordpress.com, or is it better to host elsewhere where I'll have full control of my blog?

  4. If you're an expert in 'Codes' then you may hire a webhost with .org software. But if you want tension free blogging with 24/7 support, try wordpress.com. You can anytime move to wordpress.org from wordpress.com and vice versa.
