What's the difference? I have a real estate website - Or am trying to create it, actually. Is there any reason to use .org instead of .com?

the difference is

Wordpress.com is an Open Source software meaning it's free for anyone to use and modify to meet their personal needs (in this case, to create blogs). Since it's free, it does have limitations.

Wordpress.org provides the software to create your blog, but it does not host your blog on the Internet for you. You will have to pay a separate hosting provider to obtain a domain name and host your blog online. Using Wordpress.org with a paid hosting service provides maximum flexibility and customization.

both have different features that users must have to consider..

At wordpress.com you can get your own blog like myblog.wordpress.com

At wordprees.org you can download the php script and use it on your own server.

Every blogger if he has little amount money he should start his blogging with Wordpress.org. At first it is tough but as days passes, you'll find it easy. In Wordpress. com you'll not use any plugin . Wordpress has vast collection of plugins. Another thing is you can make Wordpress.org SEO friendly. They give sites more attractive. So I suggest if you want to earn money by blogging, you must choice Wordpress.org

WordPress.org may be the website in which the free WordPress software obtainable. For free, WordPress.org provides downloadable blog software, community e-mail lists, community support forums, documentation, and free styles and plug ins.

Hai friend,

word press.com - Focus on your beautiful content, and let us handle the rest. And it have been including the hosting action
word press.org - Get your hands dirty, and host your website yourself. But it is finding the hosting
