My question is….If I buy a domain name through WP, do I get the hosting for free or is there a separate hosting fee? Thanks, Sam The blog I need help with is iamsamscham.wordpress.com.

It doesn’t change your hosting, the terms of service, what kind of code you can use, whether you can have ads, or anything like that.
