How to "JAILBREAK" your blog

Wait a minute, “Jailbreak”? for blog? You gotta be kidding me!

Unfortunately that word goes best with your iOS devices. No one jailbreaks anything else. So pardon me for using this word to grab your attention. Back to the article, tell me what will you do in following cases

Number 1 actually costs $18 per year.

I was interested in the other way, though. Like I’ll be posting stuff on and the same stuff with all categories, tags, and of course the text be delivered to another WordPress self-hosted platform. What I basically want to achieve is manage everything (except for comments) from subdomain ( but the end users will read them from a .com domain hosted on somewhere else with WordPress.

Any trick for that?

Domain Registration is a paid upgrade that costs $18.00 per domain ($25.00 for .me domains), per blog, per year. You can register as many domains as you want on the same blog, but you have to pay for each registration separately.


So I guess both of us are true 🙂 By the way, I don’t have any ready-made solution for the task you are talking about. And I also don’t think that is very easily achievable either.

I’m already using ManageWP. They’re good for managing multiple WordPress installations from same dashboard. But that is not what I wanted. I wanted to publish posts from that will be pushed to my self-hosted site.
