WordPress Hosting .Org versus .Com

When it comes to WordPress hosting, you have two options: WordPress.org or WordPress.com. While the two systems are based on similar things, such as being a blogging system and letting you create your own blogs or websites with very little struggle, there are many fundamental differences between them all.

WordPress.com is purely a service that you can use to get started with your own blog but there are a number of limitations as compared to WordPress.org, which is the system that you can download to your own computer. WordPress.com only allows you to create your own blog whereas you are able to expand to websites through the use of WordPress.org.

However, with downloading it to your computer, WordPress.org requires the use of FTP and a database so that you can run it properly, which not everybody is able to support. WordPress.com is perfect for those who simply want to run a small blog and get started in minutes. Both systems are free to use and there are pay for options if you want to upgrade in any way.
