    Hi everyone, I am just starting on wordpress, and although i have a general understanding of wordpress, there are still many questions I have.

    #1: Who owns the blog name?
    -----> If i changed my webhost, or made a new website, who owns my blog name? Does wordpress own it or me? Do I have to buy the name?

    #2: Which one do I choose?
    -----> I am planning on making a blog, so should i use {.org} or {.com}? What are the differences, pros/cons? I will be starting off by making a blog, but later, I would like to make a online store using wordpress. Which one should i use?

    #3: Upgrading?
    -----> Could i start my blog on {.com} but then upgrade to {.org}? Again, do i keep the name? What would be recommended---should i look to upgrade?

    Thank you so much, i really do appreciate it! :)

    #1 - You. You register it, you pay for it, you own it ;)

    #3 - Yes, you can move from .com to .org :)

    #2 - Because of 3, I think it doesn't matter so much. If you're brand new, I'd use WordPress.com. Even if you buy a domain through WordPress.com, it's yours.

    thank you so much!

    one more question, how do I buy a domain name?? for example, the name of my blog is...blacksheep.

    so my blog address would be blacksheep.wordpress.com. Where do I get the option to buy the domain name??
