Do You Need to Self-Host?

WordPress comes in several flavors: the sites hosted for free here at WordPress.com, sites hosted with WordPress.com with additional paid plans and features, and sites running the open-source WordPress software that can be installed at most hosting providers.

WordPress.com Business Plan users get the best of both worlds: a fully managed and reliable hosting environment for your site and the versatility of specialized features formerly only available on self-hosted sites.
