I am trying to understand the difference between..
1. Using wordpress.com and buying the 10 credits to put your .com blog on a domain
2. Using wordpress.org and installing the software on the server myself
I used to have my domain forwarded to my wordpress.com blog but now want it to be hosted on the domain. I now have it hooked up through the "upgrades" section of the .com site but want to fully understand the difference between that and what it is doing (technical terms are ok) and doing it myself with the .org software.
