If I upgrade to pro will I be able to add plugins to my blog? Also, will upgrading to pro give me the ability to select a domain name? The blog I need help with is sqlsalt.wordpress.com.

There is no upgrade here that allows you to upload plugins. They are only for WordPress.org.

September 29, 2012 at 12:53 pm #1027182 raincoasterMember You need to purchase paid hosting from a web host and install software from WordPress.com. September 29, 2012 at 1:15 pm #1027189 sqlsaltMember Is there any way WordPress can host it in that scenario? In other words, paid hosting but WordPress hosts it. Is that possible? And then have ability for plugins? September 29, 2012 at 1:23 pm #1027190 raincoasterMember No You must find PAID hosting for plugins.
