    Hey guys,

    I'm going to buy a domain name and become self hosted today, however I'm a complete newbie (only been blogging 2 months) and some help.

    1.I was going to get Hostgator because it's highly recommended, but should I just get the 6 months offer posted in the thread above?
    2.If I do get the free 6 months, what happens to my site when the 6 months is over? How easy can I transfer to Hostgator?
    3.How can I transfer my free wordpress blog over to my new host?

    Thanks Joe.
