Part 2Replace your blogspot domain with a Dot com domain From Godaddy

Recommended: 10+ Reasons why you should buy a custom domain for Blogger

What is GoDaddy?

GoDaddy is a large and reliable domain registrar and web hosting company that serves millions of domains - so you can be sure that they won't be running away with your money. The best thing I like about GoDaddy is, it is integrated into Google Blogger. If you have a Blogger blog, you can simply buy a domain from inside your Blog's dashboard!

Why choose GoDaddy?

GoDaddy offers some of the cheapest domain rates you could get anywhere. Their .com domains (which are usually the most expensive) can be purchased for as low as $10 (even $7 using some discount offers). They also give you plenty of features you can employ to extend the functionality of your blog.

  • Hosting with site builder - A basic free and easy to use website builder for beginners who'd like to make a small website of their own in no time at all
  • Easy starter guide - A detailed step-by-step guide to help beginners get started online
  • Personalized emails - Get your own email addresses (you@yourdomain.com) instead of the conventional you@gmail.com (or similar) emails
  • Sub-domains - Create personalized sub-domains such as contact.yourdomain.com instead of just www.yourdomain.com
  • Domain forwarding - Easily forward or redirect to another domain
  • And much more.....

Buying a domain

Buying a domain through Blogger is extremely easy. From your dashboard, click on Settings. Under the Publishing section, click on the Add a custom domain option.

Buying a domain through Blogger

You will get an option to choose from among a list of top-level domains (.com, .net etc). Choose any, and then continue to next step. Blogger will check with GoDaddy whether your domain is available or not. If it is, you can continue to domain registration, which is basically a form you have to fill.

Once filled, you can proceed to Google Checkout. It will ask for your credit card details, and will charge you only $10. Once the transaction is successful, you're all done! Sit back and relax as the Blogger team sets up and configures your DNS settings. Once this is over, you will be able to access your site at www.yoursite.com!

  23. BigProfitbuzz is an Indian stock market advisory firm. BigProfitbuzz proven month after month that trading and investing in stock market can be profitable whether market is bull or bear. As said last time we made a buy position in NIFTY around 6100-6150 we booked the profit around 6400. All our paid clients made a very good profit. Now for the comingMCX, COMMODITY TIPS week we suggest all the traders to make a sell position in NIFTY around 6450-6500 with stoploss of 6600 for the target 6250-6100. We know these levels are high but we are very much sure that this is the very safe level to trade. So wait for the level to take your position in the market. Traders can also make sell position in NIFTY 50 stocks according to the level of NIFTY. If want good calls in the market then fill our trial form & get them. We believe in Low risk for sufficient profit.
