    Hi all, I have a wordpress blog & host. I am fed up dealing w/ host etc. My blogs are for real estate, and there are many of them. I cant deal w/ the whole hosting thing, and found the free wordpress has the ability to use my own domain, the question is what are the pros and cons of using free wordpress (plus the paid add ons) vs. download w/ the host?

    thanks!!

    One thing you might want to look into before making such a change is whether or not they allow advertising. This FAQ entry seems to suggest not. Maybe someone else knows different?

    Purchasing the Domain Mapping upgrade does NOT give you the permission to use advertising, post any kind of prohibited code, or upload any themes or plugins.

    That is, if you have ads on your current site.
