    How to 301 Redirect Blogspot Blogs to Custom Domains


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    One of the most inexpensive but effective ways to launch your own website is to use Blogger, a free blog hosting platform owned by Google. By default, if you do not own a domain name, Blogger will ask you to select your own blog name which will be hosted in Blogger, popularly known as "Blogspot.” This article will show you how to get the benefits of using Blogger while looking much more professional to the world at large.

    Consider the naming of blogs on Blogspot. For example, if you want “web-development-expert” as your blog name, then your blog's URL hosted in Blogger will be http://web-development-expert.blogspot.com ; this is how naming of the blog will be implemented in Blogger. 

    The bad thing about not having your own domain name is that it reflects poorly on the professionalism of your blog and on yourself as an author. If you are serious about promoting your blog/website, you should consider having your own domain name. For example, in the example above you can register a domain name something like http://www.php-developer.org/. Now this looks more serious and professional as compared with the blogspot URL in the previous paragraph. 

    The good thing about having your own domain name is that you can host your content for FREE at Blogspot. This means you can have your website available and accessible to your people at your customized domain name, and the nice thing is that you will not be paying any single penny of hosting fees.  

    In summary, this will save you a lot of money on hosting and will increase the return on investment you expected for your website (since the cost of operation will be less).  

    This tutorial is aimed at bloggers who need to have a customized domain name hosted at Blogspot. This article assumes you will be registering your domain name in Network Solutions, but you will host your content in Blogger.
