@deairby moving to a self hosted server is not the only way to move WordPress.com from your domain name , you can do it while keep hosting your blog at WordPress.com via the upgrade, however to gain full control, you got to move!
@kristi-hines All hosting companies are evil because they try their best to provide affordable and reliable web hosting solution, which I think doesn’t exists!
Good web hosting is not cheap! simply because you must pay part of the license which cost 1000s of dollars, this explains why you got blocked for whatever reason while you are on shared hosting!
Speaking about support, it’s all about your luck! It depends on the person you will talk to or chat with, so good luck with that!
I recommend having at least two different web hosting services, invest some time, try them out before moving your furniture, this is certainly a personal experience!
