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 of 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.

Still struggling? We can help you set up WordPress on your hosting and install any of our themes in no time. Just check out our services.
