    Hi there,

    Here’s a comprehensive guide on how to transfer all the contents of your blog for to another hosting provider:

    Let me know if you need more help with that.



    I want to do it myself, not through guided (Paid) process.
    Please help me with it, how I can download myself.



    It’s described in the guide I already gave you. Here’s a link to the section about exporting your content:



    If I change from free plan to personal plan of (2.99Usd) and want to transfer this blog to my own domain (Already registered with another company Godaddy).
    Please help me and advise –

    Thanks in advance for your help.



    If you want to transfer away from there’s no need to upgrade to any plan.

    3. You will be able to use any plugin.

    4. You’ll have access to the database, but double check with GoDaddy to make sure.

    If instead of hosting from Godaddy, I choose to remain with WordPress and buy personal plan of 2.99usd. Then can I have all the above (mentioned in my last msg).



    No. WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG are completely separate and have different username accounts, logins, features, run different versions of some themes with the same names, and have separate support documentation and separate support forums. Read the differences here

    There is no FTP access to blogs and no blogger installed plugin capability. Those exist only on wordpress.ORG software installs and no upgrade alters that reality. WordPress.COM hosted sites have some built in plugins.

    No FTP access
    No blogger installed plugins
