The choice of a CMS platform is really an important thing. The functions it offers, the possibilities it provides and many other specialties – all of it depend on the CMS. In case you feel like your website could be much more successful, maybe you should migrate it to WordPress.com? Let’s start by identifying the main differences between WordPress.org and WordPress.com
WordPress.com is a hosted service where you can set up a website or blog that runs on WordPress.
WordPress.org – here you can download a WordPress software to use on your own hosting account.
WordPress.com offers to get basic functionality with a free plan, but you’ll need the paid upgrades to take advantage of additional features.
WordPress.org is free software. But web hosting for your website does have yearly or monthly costs.
- no plugins uploads allowed
- no backend code, database or file access
- no themes uploads; you can choose between the free and paid ones
- you can upload your own plugins to extend the functionality
- ability to customize all backend code, database, and files
- you can upload your own free, premium and custom themes
WordPress.com using the free plan you’ll see a subdomain. It will look like “yourwebsite.wordpress.com”. You can customize it using a paid plan.
WordPress.org lets you create a custom domain name of your website URL. It will look like “yourwebsite.com”
