Hello everyone!
I am planning to make a blog site where I will be the one to manage it. I'm a little bit confuse on what shall I choose. I heard that wordpress is best for blogging site and I found out that there are two kinds of wordpress, the Wordpress.com and the Wordpress.org.
Can you suggest me on what shall I choose to use for my blog site? Any suggestions would be a big help for me. Thanks!

I think it is just both the same? do you already try open both of it? is it different? if yes I am suggesting that use the Wordpress.com because that is the one that used by those bloggers. But I think it is just the same? I will check it later so I can found out. I will reply on this again if I already know the answer.

Hi There,

Wordpress.org is the makers of the wordpress software using for the blogs etc.
There are some that wordpress recommend (some might be paid advertising) https://wordpress.org/hosting/

Wordpress.com seems to be a 3rd party hosting wordpress websites for a monthly fee to customers.

Wordpress.com offers things like support, faster servers, no ads. Things like that.
Their higher tier plans offer things like courses, SEO tools, and plugin installation. I see no real benefit on choosing them over any other decent host.

Wordpress.com is a free blogging platform. You also have an option to switch to premium version by using a custom domain and hosting from wordpress.
Wordpress.org provides WordPress content management system. You need a domain and hosting account in order to use wordpress content managemrnt system. If you have $25-$30 to spare, choose this option.

I would suggest, instead of going with the private service for the WordPress, order the hosting service plan which provides the WordPress CMS from SoftaCulous app installer or through the Instralltron application installer. Becuase if you will go with the cPanl hostig service then you can have the other services like DNS management, emil service and further more features too.

You will get the security support too for the WordPress when you have this type of hosting service. If there is WordPress hosting service then you will have only WordPress.

It is simple, buy a domain name and web hosting. Ask your hosting vendor to help you install WordPress, it is that simple. If you want to get a free blog then you can really look for the difference in wordpress.com or .org. .COM is the blogging platform that provides the free or paid wodpress blog. .ORG is where you get the tools you will use on your blog. Such tools are mostly plugins and themes.
