How To Get A Custom Domain For Your Blogspot Blog

There are many people who are interested in starting a blog, but in such a way that the domain name is customized to their needs. There are a number of reasons for this. The most important is the fact that it gives the blog a more personalized feel, which means that it’s more likely to end up working for you the way you want it to. For instance, there are some people who might need to get a blog for their company and having the term ‘BlogSpot’ in the address might not be a good thing in such cases.

Fortunately, there is an easy way around this. If you are interested in getting a BlogSpot blog with a personalized domain, you only need to do the following:

Sign up for a DNS account

You can easily sign up for a DNS account using many online services. This is easy and will not cost you a lot of money, so it’s something that you can do even if you are running on a tight budget.

Edit the domain settings

Once in the DNS account you have just created, you need to edit the domain name by going to the settings menu and editing this field. When you do this, you need to edit it to the name that you need it to have. Of course, the service will check if the domain is available before using it. If not, you will need to get another domain name.

Edit your blogger domain

You then need to sign up to your Blogger account, go to the publishing settings and click the ‘Add custom domain’ button. This will then bring up a page where you will need to click on the Switch to custom domain option and then enter the address that you had chosen.

As you can see, this is a very easy process and which can be done within a very short time. It is also very cheap to do, so you don’t need to worry about the financial implications of doing it.
