WordPress.com vs WordPress.org?

Question by nellezieboo32: WordPress.com vs WordPress.org?
I have an idea of starting a blog, and I know that I want to use WordPress, but I have discovered that there are two interrelated websites. (.com and .org). I am hoping to profit from this blog, so I am unsure which site would be the best fit.

I know that the .com website is free, but from my current understanding of the .org website, I would have to pay for hosting and for a domain name.

Does anyone know the difference and which would be more beneficial?

You should use wordpress.org, but you don’t need to download it. Pick a domain name, choose a web host, install wordpress using their control panel and that’s it. WordPress.com is for free blogs which have wordpress.com at the end of the domain name e.g. myblog.wordpress.com.

What are the licence terms for a werdpress theme taken form a wordpress.org website?

Question by cmc_pofigist: What are the licence terms for a werdpress theme taken form a wordpress.org website?
I was just wondering what are the licence terms on those types of wordpress themes.
Under what licence are they distributed? Can they be used for commercial purposes? Basically, my question is – if a theme is free, what am I allowed and not allowed to do with it?

I would like to know as much as possible

Thanks.
Ok, Can a product/software under “GNU General Public License” be used for commercial purposes?

Answer by Colanth
The one that the particular theme says it’s distributed under.

Free or not, it’s copyrighted, not public domain (unless it says it is), so you’re allowed to use it for your WordPress site. As long as you leave all copyright notices intact.
