Differences WordPress.com and WordPress.org

As we are going to see in WordPress.com, you hardly have any possibilities or alternatives, and the moment you want to do more specific things to customize your project you will be very conditioned. That's why my advice is to use WordPress.org since you will have the possibility of doing what you want in your project.

To be more explicit about the differences between both WordPress options, we will compare elements such as price, knowledge, flexibility, design, plugins, web analytics and online store.

WordPress.com features
  • Price As we have commented is free, and you do not need to hire a web hosting or a domain to use it
  • Knowledge The level of knowledge you have to have and the learning curve is low
  • Flexibility You hardly have the flexibility to develop and customize your project
  • Design You do not have much freedom to modify the web design, as it can be with the use of themes or WordPress themes
  • Plugins They are not available in this version and therefore cannot be downloaded or used
  • Web analytics You can not implement a tool as essential in web analytics like Google Analytics. However, the CMS itself offers its statistics from its platform
  • Online store It is not possible to create or manage e-commerce since you can not use woocommerce
WordPress.org features
  • Price, The download and use of WordPress, is free, but you need to host it in a hosting and have your web domain
  • Knowledge The level of knowledge you have to have and its learning curve is higher
  • Flexibility You have total flexibility both to develop and customize your project
  • Design You have all the freedom to modify the web design, as it can be with the use of WordPress themes or themes
  • Plugins All the plugins are available, and you can download them and use them as you want
  • Web analytics You can implement tools such as Google Analytics or install web analytics plugins
  • Online store It is possible to create and manage e-commerce with the woocommerce plugin

With Wordpress.org, you host your own blog or website. WordPress.org is where you’ll find the free WordPress software that you can download and install on your own web server.
Wordpress.com, on the other hand, takes care of all of the hosting for you. You don’t have to download software, pay for hosting, or manage a web server.

The two users above have basically confirmed the differences about it. If you're new to websites and hosting, I would recommend going with WordPress.com to start with it. It's easy and it will help you everything and you won't have to worry about anything technical
