Hello, I've got a blog over at WordPress.com and am considering to self-hosting. The recommended webhosts on WordPress are all US-based. As I am in UK, should I still choose from one of these or are there UK-based alternatives. I want the transition from WP to self-hosting WP to be as easy as possible as I am not very techy. Thanks!
Also, do I have to move it from wordpress.com to wordpress.org before I choose a host, or once I've chosen a webhost can it just be transferred from wordpress.com to there?
