    I’ve been informed that I need to export my site to wordpress.org. Okay, but I have already paid the solution PREMIUM to stay at wordpress.com.

    How do I keep hosting in wordpress and at the same time, set up the website in wordpress.org?

    My main goal is to install wordpress plugins.

    The blog that I need help is sportiz.com.br.

    You can’t. A blog can’t be in two places at once. Either you have external hosting OR you have a WordPress.com blog. If you’re within the 30 day refund period, just ask for a refund of your upgrade from the store page.

    Tks, raincoaster.
    But this is the problem. Because the 30 days already expired. I already payed the premium plan, and I don’t wanted lost the money.
    Doesn’t exist a possible for install the plugins (banners, slider etc.) in other way? Only with Worpress.org?

    Please read this: http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
    There is no FTP access to our free hosted WordPress.com blogs and we bloggers cannot install plugins.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/ftp-access/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/
    There is no upgrade you can buy that provides FTP access.
    If you require plugins then you have to hire a web host, set up your self hosted WordPress.org install and move your content into it.

    You get your own host and set up a WordPress.ORG install on it – then you export the content from here and import to your new site –

    You can change the name servers to your new site so it is not a total loss – the registration will still work

    http://wordpress.org/ has some hosting recommendations if you want – most hosts offer a “one button install”

    @TT has some good links to help you move above

    If all you want is sliders, etc, just use one of the themes here that has them built in.
