Transcript of video tutorial: Purchasing and setting up a Custom Domain through Blogger
Have you ever wanted your own custom domain for your blog? Now it is easy to purchase and setup your own custom domain directly through Blogger. There is no need to buy online storage space. You can still continue to use Blogger free hosting. To set up a custom domain for your blog, first log into your Blogger account and visit your SETTINGS and PUBLISHING tabs. Click SWITCH TO CUSTOM DOMAIN. If you already own your own domain, click SWITCH TO ADVANCED SETTINGS for instructions on pointing it to your blogspot blog. Otherwise, enter your desired domain into the field provided to see if it is available and to begin the purchase process. Domains cost 10 dollars each and will be registered for 1 year. Keep in mind that your existing blogspot address will still direct readers to your blog. Once you found an available domain, click CONTINUE. Next, you will need to fill out your domain registration. Be sure to chose whether or not you like your registration information to be listed in the WHOIS directory. By default, your information will be unlisted. Accept the Terms of Service (TOS) and choose whether or not you want your domain registration to be automatically re-registered each year. Next, you input your billing information to Google Checkout. Once you finished, click AGREE AND CONTINUE. Next, review your purchase and place your order. Now your custom domain is set up. Click VIEW BLOG to see your blog at this new domain. Although your blog may appear immediately, please note that it may take up to 3 days for blog to transition to your new domain. Have fun with your custom domain.
