Transferring Blog from .WordPress to Your Hosting

I mentioned in the last post the benefits of hosting your own blog. In this post I will cover how easy it is to transfer it from yoursite.wordpress.com to your own hosting.

I won’t go into too much details on the setting up of the blog, but that involves: buying a domain, getting hosting, installing wordpress on said hosting.

Now, first, in the old blog, go to Tools ? Export and download the XML (WXR) file to your computer.

After that, in your new blog, go to Tools ? Import ? WordPress and upload the file you downloaded previously. Check the box for Download & import file attachments to move media files to your new blog.

As you can see, it is as easy as it comes!
