    Hi WordPressians,

    This is my first forum entry, so be nice. :-)

    I was just wondering how’d I’d move my blog to my own domain etc? As in time I wish to work with AdSense and the like, and I hear WordPress doesn’t allow that; which is good and well.

    Anyways, any answers are much appreciated.

    On your domain install WordPress 2.1
    Here, Manage > Export > Save the file
    There, Manage > Import > Upload the file
    That’s it :)

    For help with the 2.1 you need to ask at http://wordpress.org/support though.

    Hi Paul

    We’re always nice! ;)

    This FAQ thread should give you the information that you need about moving your blog:

    http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/05/07/can-i-migrate-my-blog-from-here-to-another-blog-somewhere-else/

    You’ll need to purchase a domain name and hosting from somewhere and then install wordpress for yourself. There’s loads of infromation about this over at http://www.wordpress.org, including downloads, instructions for setup and the forums for help with self hosted wordpress.

    Good luck!

    Edit: Mark and I were typing at the same time then. BTW Mark – I like your different post background!

    Actually it looks like the backgrounds switch back and forth because you’re edit post’s background is barely different from your first one.
