WordPress.org Setup

Are you currently blogging on WordPress.com? It is only possible to install themes and plugins on “Self Hosted” WordPress sites. If you want to use a theme or any WordPress plugins, you will need to upgrade first.

The good news is that we can handle the upgrade process for you for free!

What’s included?

Our FREE* upgrade service includes the following:

  • Installation of WordPress.
  • If you already have a custom domain then you can continue to use it.
  • Keep all your content (e.g. posts, comments, pages and images).
  • Keep all your subscribers and followers.
  • Expert SEO settings tailored for your site.
  • Access to 20 premium WP101 tutorials (example).

Why upgrade to WordPress.org?

  • Use any themes/plugins (thousands to choose from).
  • Keep all the same features as WordPress.com.
  • Improved site speed and SEO.
  • 100% control over your content.
  • Use any Monetisation tools you like (e.g Google Adsense).
  • You’re free to earn 100% revenue from any ads.
  • Or don’t display any ads if you like!
  • Awesome free plugins such as Page Builders and SEO tools.
  • Write about any topics without limits.

*How do I qualify for a free migration?

There are only two steps to qualify for a free WordPress migration:

We earn a commission which covers our time to setup WordPress for you. Make sure you use this link, otherwise we can’t complete the service for free!
