    Hi everyone. So I’m not completely sure how WP works, but I purchased a domain name for my website from WP and a theme from a third-party vendor, but now I can’t quite figure out how to connect using FileZilla. Do i need to be a premium WP member in order to connect to the ftp?

    Any help is appreciated – Kevin.

    The blog I need help with is

    If you purchased a domain from WPcom, you need to set it as primary domain in your domain dashboard. Follow the instructions in Point 8 in this Support doc

    If you purchased a theme from an outside vendor to use on your WPcom website, you’ll need to get a refund. The only themes we can use on websites can be found here:

    Just to clarify, there are a couple of flavors of WordPress. For better understanding about the differences between WP standalone and hosted WPcom, please take a moment to read this Support doc

    Let us know if you need more help with any of that.
