What’s the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org?

Word­Press is a pub­lish­ing plat­form that makes it easy for any­one to pub­lish online, and proud­ly pow­ers mil­lions of web­sites. It comes in two fla­vors: the ful­ly host­ed WordPress.com, and the self-host­ed ver­sion, whose soft­ware is avail­able for free at WordPress.org.

Using the WordPress.com plat­form, you can pub­lish your blog in just a cou­ple min­utes. On the oth­er hand, if you’re look­ing to cre­ate a self-host­ed web­site, you will need to use WordPress.org ver­sion. You can down­load the Word­Press soft­ware for free at http://wordpress.org, but it must be installed on a web serv­er.

All the themes from our shop are made to work with self-host­ed web­sites.
