New Design

Last November, I brought new section to this website: Blog Directory (if you haven’t submitted your blog yet, please do it – click here).

Based on this, I had to do a lot of modifications on the design of this site. It was very long journey with a lot of work loads on many levels. There were a lot of errors too that caused me to restore backups many times. This resulted in loss of some comments or in a strange behavior of the site during this period. My apology for inconvenience if any.

WordPress .COM vs .ORG

The web is filled with such comparisons; so, I won’t talk much about the difference or the reasons to move… I’ll just simply say that you have to move to .org when .com is not enough. WordPress.com is usually enough for normal user. “NOT ENOUGH”, on the other side, is when you need more control, flexibility, or extra features…

Let me first mention that on WordPress.com, you’re using the Open Source WordPress System in the way Automattic Inc. chose for you. When we say WordPress.org (self-hosted), we mean that you’re using the Open Source WordPress System in your own way.

Custom email with your domain

Have you purchased a web domain for your WordPress blog/site?

In general, WordPress provides default domain to be used with your blog. For example, mohamadkarbi.wordpress.com. When you add a domain, you have additional address to be used with your blog; for example, mohamadkarbi.com.

You can purchase a domain directly from WordPress or from any other registrar and connect it in the settings area.
