Unable to get connected to wordpress blog through Filezilla (4 posts)

    I have a wordpress blog, and it presently doesn't have any domain. The address is as follows


    When I logged into Filezilla to upload a plugin, I am unable to get a connection.

    Maybe am doing something wrong while entering details in Filezilla.

    The following are the details that I entered.

    Host: hookedondesign.wordpress.com
    Username: hookedondesign
    password: *********

    Please do guide me in this regard. Is it possible to install plugins... even when I dont have a domain of my own?

    I have checked numerous FAQ's and support topics but I have not been able to find a solution to my problem... PLEASE HELP

    Thanks in advance

    Keyword: wordpress.COM
    That's another website. We are the wordpress.ORG people.

    On that site you have a hosted service. No FTP, of course, because that is NOT your own host, server, hosting etc.
    You can work with FTP only when you have:
    - your domain
    - your hosting package bought from a company etc.

    Thanks that answers my question completely... how do I add meta tags and so on to my blog without getting a hosting service? Is there a possibility of doing that?

    That would be a question to ask at the wordpress.com forums:
