    I have already registered a custom domain name via wordpress website itself. Is there anyway to move this to a self hosting site as I want to add plugins etc as the main wordpress site does not let you install plugins unless you are on a self hosted service...



    Thanks

    yes i think you can.
    Just export all the posts, settings, categories and import on your server.

    yes, for sure you can switch. Simply install wordpress on your domain and export/import your posts from your old blog to the new one

    Absolutely. I'd check out this post from WPBeginner, which walks you right through it. http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-properly-move-your-blog-from-wordpress-com-to-wordpress-org/
