I own a domain name and website elsewhere. It’s coming up for renewal and they’re trying to charge me £150 for the year. The site’s not really operational and is a bit rubbish, so I want to shut it down and transfer the domain name to WordPress. I already have a WordPress.com blog so that would be nice and easy, no learning curve or expense.
However, I would like in due course to make it an e-commerce site. I realise I would need to use .org for that, so I’d like to know, having pointed the domain at WordPress.com, can I later divert it to .org? How difficult would this be and what money would be involved? I’m not very techie.
(By the way, am I right in thinking there is no e-commerce facility on .com or could I get one by paying extra?)
The blog I need help with is fwords.co.uk.
