Author Posts April 7, 2012 at 6:55 am #863740 carlyavonessexMember Hello, I am new to wordpress and i noticed that you can actually buy the website name, instead of having the wordpress site. what are the benefits of this, and when would be the right time to do that? Thanks, Carly x The blog I need help with is carlysalesleaderessex.wordpress.com.

To understand how it works and what the benefits are ie. primarily increased credibility, flexibility and portability you can read Do I Need a Domain? when would be the right time to do that? As soon as you know you are committed to blogging over the long term ie. the sooner the better but, if and only if, you are committed to blogging over the long term.
