There are two major kinds of WordPress

  1. WordPress dot com – Free and paid WordPress in a turnkey hosted package
  2. Self-hosted WordPress – Sometimes called WordPress dot org (but that causes a good bit of confusion)

The two kinds of WordPress can be further divided into Several Kinds of WordPress

WordPress dot com – Free and paid WordPress in a turnkey hosted package

  1. WordPress Dot Com – The Free WordPress Hosting Service – This is a great place to start out with WordPress… A free account at WordPress will help you later if you move up to self-hosted WordPress! Especially if you wish to run Jetpack and Akismet
  2. WordPress Dot Com – The Paid and ‘VIP’ Hosting Services – You might like this product from WordPress Dot Com as you’ll get a high level of support and at the same time you’ll have WordPress with a safety net where you don’t need to worry much about the Day to Day maintenance or update duties.

Self-hosted WordPress – Sometimes called WordPress dot org (but that causes a good bit of confusion) – let’s just call it self-hosted!

  1. Self Hosted – On some server account somewhere
  2. Locally Hosted – On a server owned by the individual or
    company involved in using it
Self-hosted and Locally Hosted WordPress can be further divided into
  1. Single Installs
  2. Multisite
  3. Multiple Installs
  4. Multinetwork/Multisite
