    If you mean the wordpress domain itself, one is not for rent(.ORG) - it just distributes the software.

    If you mean whether you should buy one for your own site, either one is fine, .COM being the standard choice.

    wordpress.com is like a blogspot.com : It provides you a limited blogging service,
    If you want real website, then buy a hosting, and install wordpress software from wordpress.ORG.

    At wordpress.com you can't use adsense or similar affiliate programs. They have their own aff program and they pay very low.

    Definetely go for .org, buy a hosting and domain name, download software from wordpress.org and install it at your server.

    FORGET WORDPRESS.COM

    really good answer , even tho question was really good . I think I understand the situation now , I'll use wp .com for now since I don't really have anything to invest . I've tried blogger before , I'll try out wp now , everyone has theyre different opinion about both of em . From what I've heard WP blogging is better than blogger , tho some people still stick with blogger since google owns it .

    I started with wp.com and later that blog became crucial for my online earnings. Most important is to take action and keep reading BHW forum, and you will definitely earn some money.

    Best way to do this is buy some cheap shared hosting with softilicious and install the latest Wordpress package.
    Make sure you install it as a multisite, then buy cheap domains linking them to each separate wp site. You can control them all individually but from the same dashboard, it's good. Your hosting would cost under $10 and less for each domain.

    If you use free wordpress for affiliates, it's fine but they'll close your blog once they know

    Wordpress.com is a free blog posting platform.

    Wordpress.org is when you create your own website on your own domain, you can use the Wordpress platform
