I have a great tip on how to get your domain and hosting cheap. I had done this post earlier but realized after many questions some may not have seen this. So I’m reposting . Have an amazing New Year!!
This is a really great blogging tip I found for mom bloggers. I just stumbled on this when I was thinking of getting a hosting account for my blog and I was so excited! This is the most amazing option because what if you don’t feel like keeping your name for 3 years or paying $50 – $60 just to get a yourblog.com ? Well thanks to blogger you don’t have to.
I could write the instructions all out but this link below will show you exactly what to do. Not to mention blogger has a snazzy video to help you. Well OK it’s no so snazzy but it will help you. Once you click the link you should see a box that says
What would you like to do?
- Buy a custom domain through blogger
- Host my blog on a URL I already own.
You will click buy a custom domain.
I’m assuming you’d like to get your URL and this is why your checking out this article. Lets just say your blog is called polkadot.blogspot.com what you would do is click buy a custom domain and in the box that says check availability put your polka dot name and see if it’s available. If it is you can have your dot com! Cool huh? So click the link below watch the video and with $10 paid to Google checkout in a day or so your site will be redirected to your own personal dot com and you can look professional like the other top mom bloggers! Let me know if you have any questions or if you need any help.
