[MUSIC] Hello, and welcome to this Tuts+ Coffee Break course on switching from WordPress.com to a self-hosted WordPress site. My name is Rachel McCollin, and in this course I'll show you how to copy your site from WordPress.com to your own self-hosted site. So I'll look at how you find a hosting provider, how you install WordPress once you've done that, how you can copy your content across. And then I'll show you how to set up your theme, your menus, and your widgets. Watch this course to learn how to make the switch.
