Verifying with free wordpress.com

Hi! So, I’m creating a new website on wordpress.com. I tried to verify it, however, I need to install a plugin. When I attempted to install the plugin on my new website, wordpress.com asked me to pay to enable plugins. Is there a way to circumvent this and get verified on a free wordpress.com domain? I don’t want to spend if I really have too. After all, that website I created is more like of a portfolio for novels that I’ve edited.

Sadly no. Free .wordpress.com site is not supported. You need yourowndomain.com in order to verify it.

That sucks. So wordpress.com really is way inferior based on my research. Haha. Especially if you’d want to grow. But are you aware if the free wix.com is better?

This one @zaindeveras :point_up:

You can’t verify free wordpress.com, wix.com, or blogspot.com site.

If you want your site using WordPress, you can considering using self-hosted WordPress site. Or like you mentioned in your original post, you can upgrade your wordpress.com plan so you can have yourowndomain.com and/or ability to add plugin.

I see, oh well, guess my website has to wait then. Hahaha. Thanks!
