Easiest Way to switch from Blogspot to your own Domain

I recently did the switch!  I have put this off forever because of paying for web-hosting, paying to have my blog design moved to work press, switching to word press, the complications of switching over, losing my alexa rating, my pr rank, etc.

Well what if I told you much of this can be avoided (unfortunately not all of it but most!)

I recently found a very simple way to switch over at a minimal cost and five minute set up!

Here is how to do it:

If you go to your blogger dashboard you will see all the different options on the left side, click on "Settings".  Just like pictured on the left!







Not far down (almost at the top) you will see a section labeled "Publishing" and it will show your blog address!  Underneath that it will have a button you can click "Add a custom domain" link pictured below.



Once you click on that it will show you the information below and you can enter the domain you want and check it's availability.  If it is available you will pay the $10 for the new domain name and this will include hosting - you keep your blogspot and it will redirect to your domain (may take a couple days).  The nice thing is you don't change anything on your end!  You keep the blogger dashboard/interface and put all your posts on that - it automatically publishes to your blog - so your .com will look just like your .blogspot.com from your end!


Sure you will still drop on Alexa, PR Rank, etc....  but having a domain will pay off in the end - plus if you just started you have the advantage of not really losing any of your rank - so do it now!!!

If you have any questions let me know!

Bluehost is ultimately one of the best hosting provider with plans for any hosting needs.
