    Alright, I am going to try to make my question as clear as possible.

    I have a wordpress acount with a url : blabvvlabal.wordpress.com (whatever)

    I do not want a domain name for this as its going to be a pretty irrelevant site and don't see the point in paying for one.

    I would like to host the wordpress blog on my own server though, since I use PLUGINS. I cannot add plugins if its hosted on their site.

    So is there a way that I can redirect my wordpress.com address to somehow my wordpress on my server - without owning a domain name for it.


    ****

    Also - I am trying to clone 5 instances of my blog.
    I made 1 with everything all set up and would like to clone it again with all the same settings and plugins and basically just have minor changes to do and not spend countless hours wasting time.

    I had found a way but it only left the theme + plugins. All other changes were back to empty... So if anyone could explain or show me an article... Google ain't showing me too much love with those two.

    Thanks

    This is how you redirect a blog hosted on wordpress.com to your self hosted blog.

    Code:
    http://store.wordpress.com/premium-upgrades/redirect/
    Although you'd need to purchase annual subscription which costs $13/year.

    And to answer your second question, you can easily do this BackupBuddy plugin.

    Yeah, at 13$ a year, I just might as well purchase a domain name.

    Thanks for the tip on backupbuddy plugin. Will look into it.
