What is WordPress
WordPress is an online, open source website creation tool written in PHP. But it is probably the easiest and most powerful blogging and website content management system (or CMS) in existence today.
Question in your mind might be if Both looks same then how both are different from each other?
With WordPress.org, you host your own website. WordPress.org is the place from where you can find free and premium theme and plugin for your website. You need to pay for domain name and hosting for installing software on your own server.
WordPress.com, on the other hand, takes care of all of the hosting for you.It means you need not to download softwares, and no need to pay for domain and hosting.
If you are not able to pay for your own hosting and managing your own web server, you’ll probably want to use WordPress.com
WordPress.com is free and easy to set up and there will be lot more options for customizing your website.
Yet WordPress.com is free to set up still they do offer several premium upgrades.
These upgrades includes domain name registration (if you are not feeling well with WordPress.com in your domain name) and also the ability to upload videos.
Upgrades also provide you the option of using premium themes.
But using the downloaded version of WordPress from WordPress.org, gives you more control and flexibility on your website means you can edit and create your website in any way you want. This type flexibility was missing in WordPress.com.
But it also means that you have much more responsibility.
You need to upload and install themes and plugins on your hosting or server. It will give you the access to edit the website code according to the need and also have the access to website’s database.
