    Do wordpress.com also provide hosting ?

    Hi everyone,

    While creating a free blog on wordpress.com. They suggested me TLD for $18/ year. Do they host blogs if yes how good they are
    I tried to search more but couldn't get more.

    Please share your experience here.

    Here are the details on everything they offer: http://store.wordpress.com/

    Personally, I would register a domain with a 3rd-party, then import it as needed. By registering with a 3rd-party (such as namecheap.com), you will ensure ownership of your domain if you ever decide to move away from the hosted service.

    If you host on worpress.com there are limitations on generating ad revenue. If you have a host outside wordpress.com then you can monetize it within legal means.

    worpress.com allows hosting only wordpress websites. either you can register domain from other registrar and host with Wordpress or you can register and host your domain with Wordpress.com
