I own a domain name and have been kicking around the idea of hosting my blog there. What are the advantages of doing this? I like the fact that WordPress has a tag surfer and can drive traffic to my blog via tags. I assume I would lose that benefit if I hosted on my domain.

I am also wondering if there are any free/low cost web hosting services out there that offer customizable templates.

Any insight/feedback into this issue?

Thanks friends. Appreciate your assistance!
