  2. Without paying WordPress.com, move your blog to new Domain/Host

    If you have website on wordpress.com and day by day you’re becoming popula and you believe if you move it and make it self hosted — then you can earn some money and move your blog to the next level, this proxy will work out for you.

    Go to index.php files and change your old and new domain address and upload to your host.

    $dataurl =$primaryurl = "http://googlememe.wordpress.com";//old domain
    $secondaryurl = "http://googlememe.com"; //new domain
    $path =array_keys($_GET);
    if(!empty($path[0])) $dataurl = "{$primaryurl}/{$path[0]}";
    $data = file_get_contents($dataurl);
    $pattern = "~{$primaryurl}/([dS/]+)~";
    $data = preg_replace($pattern,"{$secondaryurl}/$1",$data);
    $data = str_replace(array("<a href="">
    &lt;form action=&quot;&quot;{$secondaryurl}&quot;),array(&quot;<a> 

    Now, you have to modify your .htaccess and place the codes

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond $1 !^(index.php|images|robots.txt)
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (.+)
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?$1&amp;amp;%{QUERY_STRING}
    RewriteCond $1 !^(index.php|images|robots.txt)
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?$1

    Note: Make sure that you have backup copy of your files.

    I’ve seen most of the blogger couldn’t able to organize this functions to their blog. The default which is not neat but if you work hard a little you can control your read more functions and as well you can specific the words — when it will create read more. Again and again to creating such things manually that actually waste of time.
