Wordpress.org requires a few items to be able to build an independent website.  You need the WordPress. org software, you need a domain name (a URL) and you need a server to host the website.  Using WordPress.org requires no knowledge of html.  The resultant website belongs solely to a single user.

To use WordPress.com, a website will share a server with many other users even though all the users will be separated. To my knowledge, you can’t use a separate domain name with this version since the domain name for the website uses WordPress and the user’s name.

Both versions allow non-technical people to build websites although the .org version requires some sophistication because of the many (many!) options available with templates and plugins.

I hope this answers your question.

 

Here is an article about the two versions: https://elementor.com/blog/wordpress-com-vs-wordpress-org/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwl9GCBhDvARIsAFunhslIcH2rgI_RkCh-CvbNl6Ptpc3MIQOYSM4NFS8CXSn3GhD1IYUghLsaAkN6EALw_wcB
