Wordpress.com OR wordpress.org


Recommended Posts

I am pretty new to websites, but very tech savvy, so please forgive if this is a dumb question.



The type of wordpress account that is in Cpanel.  Is that a wordpress.com account, or a wordpress.org account?


I am going to start my first wordpress site and would like to know which one it is.  I understand that there is a difference...

Both wordpress.com and wordpress.org use the same underlying software (Wordpress). The difference between the sites is wordpress.com offers hosted Wordpress installations whereas wordpress.org is where you'd go to download the software itself to host it yourself.


It's also worth noting that you can use Softaculous in cPanel with us to do a Wordpress installation instead of downloading the files from wordpress.org and installing the software manually.
