How To Add Custom Domain in Blogger (Blogspot) – 3 Simple Steps (Beginner Tutorial)

Blogger is the most popular free blogging platform powered by Google managing millions of domains free of cost. In the beginning, most of the guys wants to know about the terms like free web hosting, free blog hosting etc. but they don’t know about Google’s blogging platform – Blogger.com. I recommend this because it is free, reliable, fast, easy to setup and especially because it’s managed by Google, so no worry about bandwidth, high traffic, server downtime etc.Blogger Logo
I am presenting this basic beginner blogging tutorial especially for those guys who’re completely new in this field and want to start a blog on a standard free blogging platform but don’t have enough knowledge of where or how to use custom domains  in blogger?
In the beginning, one can start with free tld – blogspot.com provided by Blogger. Once the blog gets enough popularity  and receiving a good amount of traffic or if you want to start a professional blog rather to use a free tld then you should purchase a name and put it here, your blogspot.com blog automatically redirects to your domain name (e.g. www.domainname.com).

3. Click on the link ‘Add a custom domain’, it will ask to register a domain name for your blog, now here there are two options available- You can register a domain from Google Apps or you can also put your already registered domain here. I recommend world’s best domain registrar Godaddy to register a new domain, we’ve some Godaddy discount promo codes (0.99$, 2.49$, 4.95$ etc) for first year of registration.
So, If you already own a domain then click on the link (Switch to advanced settings)-
