WordPress.com or WordPress.org, and What’s the Difference?

WordPress.com is the freemium website hosting service by WordPress while WordPress.org is a self-hosted service. The free plan of WordPress.com does not give you your own custom domain name and you only get a subdomain. Your site URL would appear as name.wordpress.com/ which doesn’t look professional to the readers and hampers your personal brand.
Monetization of the WordPress.com blog also becomes a challenge as you can’t run any affiliate marketing programs or post direct ads through ad networks like Google Adsense. You can register for WordPress’ profit-sharing program, WordAds to monetize your traffic. There are also limits on customization and ability to add plugins to the blog which you may find restrictive.
WordPress.org, on the other hand, is more reliable, gives you access to the full features that WordPress offers and lets you grow your subscribers and monetize your blog. So in this post we will cover how to move your Medium blog to WordPress.org to unleash the true power of WordPress
