WordPress.com or WordPress.org

Being on Twitter helping people with WordPress issues, I have come across questions quite often. “Whats the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org?”

It’s really a simple answer so here it goes:


  1. If you have a website with WordPress.com your URL will be example.wordpress.com.
  2. You will not be able to upload any themes or plugins.


  1. If you have a WordPress.org site you would have had to set up your hosting.
  2. Your URL will be whatever you picked (mine is luis.coffee) and you are able to upload any theme or plugin you want.

If you are using a WordPress.com site I suggest moving away and switching to a full-blown WordPress site. You will have more options and full customization.

If this is something you are interested in and not sure what to do next send me a message or send me a DM on Twitter.
