What do you mean by self-hosted site?

Oct 4, 2016 | Hosting and Platforms, WordPress Tutorials

A self-hosted WordPress site requires that you have purchased a domain name and paid a company to store your files and WordPress database. Popular companies to purchase hosting plans include Siteground, GoDaddy, HostGator, and Bluehost.

If you are currently using WordPress.com, you do not have a self-hosted site. To use templates from Albemarle PR, you will need to move to a self-hosted site so that the code will be compatible and you’ll have the option to use features such as plugins.

Update! WordPress.com now offers a business plan that permits third-party templates and plugins.

We recommend SiteGround for WordPress hosting. To learn more about hosting options, click here.
