    I have a wordpress.com site that I realized was not as customizable as I would like and I want to now get it self hosted but I want the benefits or wordpress.org

    How do I transfer it to wordpress.org before setting it up with a self hosting site, or do I even need to do that?

    .ORG does not host any sites - you have to set up hosting first in order to move to a self-hosted site.

    so if I just transfer through to a hosting site, will I still have all the benefits of wordpress.org, or am I stuck with the limited options that wordpress.com provides because thats where it came from?

  5. The difference between WordPress.com, WordPress, and WordPress.org

    Self-hosting gives you more options in terms of themes and plugins, etc.

    When you move to a self-hosted site, you have complete freedom to do whatever you want with your site :). (Some hosting companies may have restrictions but unless you have a huge site, tons of traffic or content that is "questionable" or illegal, that should not be a factor.) Your site won't have any leftover .COM "restrictions."

    You CAN'T transfer to .ORG - we don't host sites :).
