Available Upgrades

  • Plans
    Our plans have a combination of upgrades that offer convenience and good value. With a plan, you get the must-have upgrades at a discounted price.
  • Custom Design
    With the Custom Design upgrade, you can make your blog look exactly the way you want. The Font Editor lets you customize the fonts in your theme in a just few clicks — no coding knowledge required! The CSS Editor lets you customize the stylesheets of any available theme. Some themes, like the plain but versatile Sandbox and Toolbox, are blank canvases waiting for your custom CSS, fonts and images. Please note, however, that the Custom Design Upgrade does not permit the editing of the core PHP or template files of any theme. This upgrade costs $30.00 per blog, per year.
  • Domain Mapping and Domain Registration
    Take the ‘wordpress’ out of your blog’s URL by registering a custom domain for your blog, or adding one you already own. Add a domain from Store → My Domains to purchase. This upgrade starts at $13.00 per domain, per blog, per year.
  • Guided Transfer
    Have one of our Happiness Engineers transfer your WordPress.com site to a self-hosted WordPress.org site. This upgrade is a one time fee of $129.00 per blog transferred.
  • No-ads
    We sometimes run discreet advertisements on your blog to users who aren’t logged in and aren’t regular visitors. Purchasing the No-Ads upgrade will eliminate any ads on your blog so no one sees them at all. This is especially useful for business blogs. This upgrade costs $30.00 per blog, per year.
  • Premium Themes
    Add more options for site customization, exclusive designs, and support direct from theme authors with a Premium Theme upgrade. Pricing for each theme can be found under the Premium tab in the Appearance → Themes page of your dashboard. Premium themes are priced per blog, for the lifetime of that blog. Can’t pick just one? You can also pay a flat yearly rate for unlimited premium themes for your blog.
  • Site Redirect
    Easily redirect your blogname.wordpress.com blog, and all of its permalinks, to your new domain, if you decide to leave WordPress.com. This upgrade costs $13.00 per blog, per year.
  • Space Upgrade
    Increase the space available for all of your uploads by 10GB, 25GB, 50GB, 100GB, or 200GB, and add the ability to upload audio/music files. See the Space Upgrade page for pricing information.
  • VideoPress
    Upload and embed your own videos directly within your blog posts and pages. This upgrade costs $60.00 per blog, per year.

Same Rules Apply – The Domain Mapping Upgrade does not enable the permission to use advertising, any kind of prohibited code, or upload additional themes or plugins. With the upgrade, your blog will still be hosted here at WordPress.com, which means that you will not have FTP access to your files and you will still be required abide by our Terms of Service.
