  1. I love WordPress and now I’m an even bigger fan! Thank you for comparing .com and .org, I was recently thinking about switching to .org. Thanks to you, I’ve now ditched the idea. Thanks a million!!!

    1. Thanks for your positive and encouraging remark…Eugenia, honestly, I never thought about writing for WordPress.com, or do you mean WordPress.org? you know wordpress is of two types: dot com, and dot org.

      I wrote this particular article because I am now a WordPress.com affiliate. I recently applied to become an affiliate, and my application was successful and approved.

      WordPress.com gave me a banner and referral ID which I can place on my site, articles, posts and earn money from clicks that lead to conversions or sales.

      I will see the guidelines and requirements for wp tavern and know what next step to take… thanks alot for the information

    1. Jerlene, thanks alot for your positive review of the article…Wordpress.com and WordPress.org both provide good services, but there are some differences that deserve to be highlighted so as to enlighten people enough to make a wise choice and decision…

  5. Wow this is wonderful information. I actually am managing a site now that is wordpress.org and it’s so cumbersome and requires all these plugins. Being a wordpress.com user for 7 years makes me wish everyone knew what you are sharing. Thanks for this post!

  6. I know how to manage wordpress.org sites but I still chose wordpress.com. This is primarily to save time and avoid all the BS that you need to follow (backups, security updates for sites and plugins, solving plugin incompatibilities, etc). While wp.org is still superior overall especially if you want to create an elaborate site (e.g. eCommerce, full-fledged forums, etc.), I think that for someone who doesn’t want to worry about technobabbles and tech-related headaches, wp.com is better in most cases.
    Anyway most of the inherent disadvantages of wp.org can be offset, but you need to pull out serious cash (at least 3k per year if you want good service)

  7. Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I
    stumbleupon on a daily basis. It will always be useful to read content from other writers and
    use a little something from their web sites.

  8. Really love the comparison between both platforms. As a former .org user, I found myself battling with vulnerabilities and security breaches on an old blog that I was testing under years ago. I’ve decided to sign up for a .com subscription last year and I found myself quite content on the platform without the added headaches. Really great content 👍
