WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org- Which is better?

WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org- Which is better?

There are so many blogging platforms today that honestly it can be a bit of a headache figuring out which to use.  And if you’ve narrowed your options down to WordPress, you now have even fewer options and can start to look at WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org.

WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org

Is there a difference between these two, and which should you choose to host your site?

wordpress.com vs. wordpress.org

The obvious answer is YES, there is a HUGE difference between even these two WordPress platforms.

There are benefits to both, but in the following video I’ll be giving you some comparisons of using WordPress.com vs WordPress.org. I want you to see the difference between these two and why there are some great perks to running your online business on Worpress.org, hands-down.

I’m quite biased when it comes to WordPress.org, and here’s why.

You have complete control over your virtual territory.

There is nothing holding you back from just the right design and functionality you want for your site.  Adding themes and templates is a cinch and it just opens up and makes a world of difference

You have the ability to add your favorite plugins.

With a self-hosted site, you can add and delete plugins at your discretion.  Plugins will play a major role in how your site functions so you’ll want to be sure you free up your virtual domain for the ability to select plugins.

Plugins are what make your site so much fun- it’s the bread and butter of your blog and allows you to build it to your heart’s content.  Some of the plugins I use help me to make this blog function at its best-including adding on podcasting (using the Blubrry plugin) and batch scheduling my posts and sharing them.

Sorry WordPress.com- but you don’t offer unlimited plugin options.

You can select your favorite themes and templates.

Your choices for templates are limited on “.com”.  Extremely limited.

Switching to self-hosted allows you the freedom to install themes by companies of your choice. Suddenly, a world of thousands of templates are available at your fingertips- many of them free.

I use Genesis themes by Studiopress which offers excellent customer support.  It’s not free, but the support is so worth it. Thesis is another great option, although I’ve never used it myself.

You can’t advertise on WordPress.com sites.

On a self-hosted “.org” site, you can advertise as much as you like because it’s your domain, your space, your territory.

You’ll find so much freedom on WordPress.org that is just simply not available at .org.

When choosing WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org, these are just a few reasons why I like self-hosted sites, and have chosen to host all my sites on WordPress.org!

 If you have any questions about this video, I’d love to hear from you.  Thanks for watching the video.

My Favorite Tools Series: Studiopress

Here’s a quick video about my affinity with Studiopress and how easy it is to get set up, as well as some of the advantages of support.

There’s not much for me to say except watch the video! Obviously, Studiopress is one of my favorite web tools and I couldn’t do what I do online without the support of this company.

Take a look at the video and let me know your thoughts or questions.
