    I’m contemplating swapping from WordPress.com to .org so this is a very helpful read! Will be saving this to re read at a later date!

  • Yikes this sounds super complicated, thanks for sharing this post! I cant wait to read part two on Friday 🙂

  • Oh my goodness!!! I am actually going self hosted this coming week with bluehost – and couldn’t wait. But now I’m scared 😂 you should check out wpbeginner – the website and YouTube channel. They explain everything 😊I really admire you for taking the plunge – I love your blog and it looks great! So your hard work (and I know it’s hard😉) is paying off 😘😘😘

      Oh congrats! I’m actually quite disappointed with Bluehost, you’ll see in the next post, their hostings great but their customer service not so much. & yeah I read quite a few things but most of the problems I had weren’t explained much on their posts so I had to keep contacting them haha. Thank you so much Jessica I really means a lot! Xxx

  • I have been thinking about self-hosting. That sounds complicated, but super helpful. Now, I think really should do it when I am on vacation! 🙂 Can’t wait to read the second half. 🙂

    • Jessica Jade says:

      You should go for it! As long as you do your research before you should be fine! It’s just the little things that are complicated, the moving over is straight forward after that ☺ thank you! Xx

  • I tried to move mine about three months into blogging, ad it was so damn hard, I gave up, but probably once my 1 year plan expires with .com I’ll try it again!

    Thank you so much for your thoughts on this process, I’m not moving to .org yet but when I do I’ll keep these in mind.

    This post has been helpful, thank you! How much was everything in total? I have a plan and a domain with wordpress.com, will I keep my domain if I self host? Also has it been worth it for you?

    • Jessica Jade says:

      I’d already payed for my domain so I only had to pay for hosting and they was around £100 for 3 years & then I bought my theme. I’d definitely say it was worth it, I am sooo much happier with my blog now! And yeah you point in over to where your new site is hoseted xxx
