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.

Balance

Writing as Lisa Jobson from the eastern suburbs of Toronto, Ontario – and also known as the Fox – for Mohamad.

We read each other’s blogs because of our common language; IT or Information Technology which is the foundation of the digital world.   We also share a love of other topics – weaving poetry into writing and photography.  We are in entirely different corners of the world, or are we?  There are no corners on this globe.

The story deepens so stay tuned!

God bless,
