How to Move from WP.com to WP.org (2 posts)

    Alright, so I have an account with WordPress.com (http://soccerspecs.wordpress.com) but I would like to monetize the website and WordPress does not allow that. They said I could move to a hosting service and install the software, I have moved to a hosting service and uploaded the file onto it (the download from this site). WP.com staff also said to export my site I had to use the export tool and save the XML file, so I have done that. Now I have the files saved on the hosting service, and have already purchased the domain name... so how do I get my new page (http://soccerspecs.110mb.com) looking like the old one (http://soccerspecs.wordpress.com)?

    Help much appreciated for a WordPress newbie :)

    I think it's an amazing coincidence that there's another recent forum post that talks about the same topic like this:


    Here's more on that: http://codex.wordpress.org/Importing_Content#Wordpress

    However, that topic only talks about importing contents.. if you also want the new blog to look the same, you might want to find the theme like the one you're using on your wordpress.com blog and install it as well on your new one.

    Good luck!
