slide 4:

PAGE Wordpress.com You can get a free blog at WordPress.com. You dont need to pay for hosting or a domain. WordPress.com does n’t allow you to use plugins and this is the biggest drawback of .com version so you dont need to pay for them. In the .com version you are not allowed to edit the back end either. In short you get the power of WordPress without the ability of customizing it.

Everything is taken care of: setup upgrades spam backups security etc. Hundreds of servers are supporting your blog so it’s highly unlikely to go down due to traffic.

PAGE Con’s of wordpress.com It’s stiff It’s limited You can’t upload plugins customize the PHP code either. As a result the flexibility of customizing your site is limited. Using custom third-party themes/templates is one of the best benefits of using WordPress but you can’t use them at .com version. It’s common Though they do provide 100+ themes but you cannot go beyond since customizing isn’t allowed. So the chance of getting a more professional unique look and feel is minimum.
