In this short course I will go over the different things you need to know when transferring a WordPress site from the .com version of WordPress to the .org version.

WordPress.com is a great hosted WordPress option that lets you get a WordPress site online quickly and for free without needing your own hosting. However, there are limitations to WordPress.com, sites, primarily the limited number of plugins and themes that are available and the lack of the ability to be able to customize the template files.

For this reason, some users find that at a certain point they need to move their WordPress site away from WordPress.com and onto their own hosting account where they can use the much more extendable WordPress.org version of WordPress.

In this short course I go over how and why of switching a website from WordPress.com to WordPress.org.
