    Hey, I registered my domain at wordpress.com about one month ago, I'm trying to develop my site but it's tooooo limited options there, I need wordpress.org
    I tried transfering my website to godaddy (to use wp.org for it) but they said domains registered less than 60 days ago cannot be transfered.

    I really need to use wordpress.org for my site, is there any way I can do it?

    Did you purchase the domain from wordpress.com? If yes, you cannot transfer out to another registrar before sixty days. I am not sure as I have never used wordpress.com domain before, look in the domain control panel (if they gave any) and change the nameservers to Godaddy as of now.

    Big tip. Don't use godaddy. Use bluehost, dreamhost, something like that instead. There are coupon offers for shared hosting everywhere for them

    I would suggest you contacting @CyberHour and get hosted with them. Or check the Marketplace offers.

    I guess you registered your domain with Godaddy. But you can choose any web hosting you like. Just go to the domain control panel setting up the DNS to your hosting server.
    IMO, Godaddy is not good.

    you would not be able to transfer your domain out until after 60 days. But in the mean time you can set up hosting at another provider and point your domain to that host. then when the 60 day are up then you can move the domain name over as well.

    It seems to me your hosting provider must help you out.
