Disadvantages of FREE wordpress.com.
- You are not the owner of your blog, WordPress is. Basically this means that your blog can be shut down at any moment if WordPress judges that you have violated their rules. Also, if they believe your account has been compromised, WordPress may suspend or disable your account.
- You do not have your own domain name.
- You can never be found in Google on relevant search terms that have a high volume. Google search considers free websites unprofessional.
- You do not have a professional email address.
- Currently there are more than 50,000 free WordPress plugins. However, with a free blog you can’t install any of these. And that is downright bad!
Disadvantages of PAID wordpress.com.
- After one year, the domain name becomes very expensive. And you pay that high amount every year.
- If you want a professional email address, you have to pay extra.
- And here’s the main drawback: if you want to use plugins you have to go for a much more expensive web hosting plan. But these plugins are indispensable! Your WordPress website will never function properly without all those necessary plugins!
