    Our small group has a site hosted at hostgator with a wordpress blog the site address is http://www.justyork.org , Due to lack of finances and time to upkeep the main site we want to drop the main site and just have a wordpress blog (which is free ?) but to keep the same domain name . Is this possible ?

    Yes. You can have any type/amount of information on a site. Do you own the domain name?

    Point the domain name to justyork.org/blog and you will be set. You can redirect http://www.justyork.org to justyork.org/blog

    Or for a cleaner set-up move the blog into the root directory and the address will be http://www.justyork.org/

    What ever you decide on make sure you have backups.
