    hello all.

    i currently run a moderately successful wordpress.com blog. i would love to move it to wordpress.org - is this completely possible while keeping the domain name?

    i have purchased hosting at bluehost already, and need to know the next step.

    thanks in advance! plz don't troll me.

    Yes is possible you can install wordpress.org site in bluehost and use temp url they gave you to access wordpress install.

    Once you have all set up the way you want you can export your data from wordpress.com and import in your wordpress.org.

    Change your urls in Settings>>>General to your domain name from temp.

    Finally change name servers at registrar to point to bluehost.
