Where to purchase custom domain for Blogger?

Firstly, head to:

Dashboard > Settings > Publishing

Then click on Switch to "Custom Domain".

So now you're on the page where you buy a domain for your blog via Google Apps. A domain costs USD10 a year.

Enter the domain address you desire and check on its availability by clicking on the blue button beside.

enter custom domain

Take note: Your readers won't be left behind!


So there's no need for your readers to change your link on their blog roll because it will be automatically redirected to your new domain.

After checking its availability, you will redirected to a new page with information regarding the domain.

If you noticed below, there's a phrase "Powered by" or "Powered by eNom". These 2 are the domain registration partners of Google. Click on "Learn more" to switch between them. I would suggest

godaddy and enom

Then, continue with the registration.

Enter your domain name information and remember to check "Automatically renew my registration every year" if you want to keep this domain.

Follow the rest of the instructions and it's pretty simple. Do remember to have your credit card/debit card ready as well.

All the best!
