transfer from .com to .org without losing blog
Hi, I think I made a mistake going with wordpress.com as i want to use some of the plug in’s you have with wordpress.org and didn’t realise there was a difference, is there any way to transfer my blog to .org without losing it?
The blog I need help with is powersolutionsuk.wordpress.com.
Yes, of course you can do that. WordPress.org offers free software that you can install on a web server. You can upload and install themes and plugins, run ads, and edit the database. Learn about the differences here. http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
You need to create an XML export file of your content. It will not include the theme as they cannot be exported. See 3 below.
WordPress.com and WordPress.org are completely separate.
1. Hire a web host http://wordpress.org/hosting/
3. Export your content out of your WordPress.com blog http://en.support.wordpress.com/export/ and import it into the install.
4. Purchase a site redirect upgrade from wordpress.com
http://en.support.wordpress.com/site-redirect/ or if you have domain mapping then update the nameservers http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/domain-management/
5. Transfer subscribers and stats. See http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/moving-your-subscribers/
Hi, I also made the same mistake going with WordPress.com and want to use WordPress.org for affiliate marketing purposes and uploading custom WordPress themes. My WordPress.com domain is upgraded to a custom domain (devinemarketers.com). Can someone help with moving my custom domain to WordPress.org? I currently have a web host with DreamHost.
my wordpress.com account and domain was just created on 10-23-13. I don’t have any pages created or contacts that I want to export. Basically just the domain name I need changed over to WordPress.org
If you’ve registered your domain through WordPress.com and now want it to point to a blog or website hosted elsewhere then you can do this by updating the nameservers.
I’m initiating the change now. Do i need to remove the WordPress dns numbers after the new Dreamhost dns numbers are listed or leave the WordPress in as well?
Ex. 2 or just keep dreamhost
