WordPress.org vs WordPress.com

WordPress.org vs WordPress.com.? If you’re new to WordPress or even played around a bit, this is a normal question and usually needs some explanation since the two get confused pretty easily.

Both are great options and the best one for you depends on the plans you have for your site, your skill level and how much time you can spend on maintaining and designing your site.

Do you need a self-hosted or WordPress.com site?

If you looking to create a simple website or just a blog, you probably will not want to want to fuss with regular maintenance or security and won’t want to customize your site too much, then WordPress.com probably is your best option.

If you need full control over your website design, plugins, files and database with the freedom to basically do anything you want  and don’t mind maintaining and securing your site, then WordPress.org can provide the software you need.  You don’t have to worry about maintaining and securing your site if you rather leave this to the experts though.  Graphic Lux has several different WordPress Care Plans to choose from, so you can do what you do best and leave the WordPress maintenance up to our specialists.

If you plan on developing an E-commerce, membership, social media or large business site a self-hosted WordPress site will give you more options and offers more flexibility.

We recommend: WordPress.org

When it comes down to cost, freedoms and limitations, and maintenance and development considerations, WordPress.org wins easily.

It may take more time and effort to set up a WordPress site, but you will have full control over the look and feel of your site. You will be able to use custom themes and customize their look, and also upload custom plugins to add more functionality to your site.

Leave it to the experts

You may or may not feel comfortable updating plugins, themes and core, but it’s not what you do best.  Leave your website care to Graphic Lux.   We will make sure your site is always up-to-date, has daily backup’s and is secure!
