Difference between wordpress.com vs wordpress.org ?
Many people are understandably confused about the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, so let’s take a moment to go over this before we begin.
WordPress.com will give you a free blog, hosted on WordPress’ own servers. It’s most suitable for absolute beginners – you don’t need to worry about configuring files or databases and everything is taken care of for you. A WordPress. com blog is similar to any other online blog service like Blogspot or Tumblr. It’s the absolute easiest way to begin with WordPress, but it’s very restrictive in the plugins and themes you can use – essentially you get to choose from a limited catalogue of pre-chosen styles and approved plugins.
WordPress.org, on the other hand, is the site from which you can download the self-hosted WordPress system and upload it to your own server. You’ll need a server capable of running PHP, and a MySQL based database. Setting up a self-hosted blog is a little more difficult (think 5 minutes instead of 1), but you get a lot more freedom to do as you wish, customize how you like, and it’s easy to have your own domain from the start. The majority of this guide will refer to the self-hosted wordpress.org version.
To add further confusion, many web hosts will offer one-click WordPress.org installs which will install the files and set up the database for you – so you don’t need to configure anything! If you choose to host with a shared server, this is the recommended option.
