    Hi, I have a wordpress blog on pt-br with my dot com domain hosted on wordpress (yes I paid the USD 10 dollar to later discover they don't accept google adsense). Now the wordpress hosting 1 year expired.

    I now want to know how to transfer my template and posts to my host, so I can manipulate the design of my site.

    Thanks a lot. On Hostgator the Fantastico did everything for me.

    I'm just not sure how to save the database or how to import it.

    And oh crap, I just removed my .com domain from my wordpress profile, I guess I can't have access to a FTP now.

    Install WP-backup plugin and you can do the backup from within WP admin and not thru the Cpanel.
