    Hello,

    I was wondering is there is a way I can transfer my WordPress.COM site (gpgolfreport.com) to WordPress.ORG?

    I want to do so so I can have more tools to use to build the site up.

    Thank you

    You can export your content from WordPress.COM - see:

    Change the nameservers to your new hosting (when you know what that is - they can tell you what the new nameserver settings should be) - see:

    Alright,

    Think you can explain to me what nameservers are? Also, I can move my domain even though it's a paid domain (Since it's GPGolfReport.com not GPGolfReport.wordpress.com)? Thanks again.

    See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Name_server

    See the link I posted above about changing the nameservers for your domain name - if you need help with it, you need to ask on the WordPress.COM forums - as that's where you need to make the change.
