How to customize your own domain on Blogger.com

If you want to have your custom domain with Blogger.com you first need to buy a domain.
I recommend you to first search on google to buy domain.
A low cost domain offerings that I recommand for .com / .net domains is Godaddy.com
Godaddy.com offers first year for $2.99 and additional years for $14.99
▶Total $17.98which is saving $6.02 if your planning to use 2 years. I created a little chart for easy understanding of how Godaddy.com works.

Godaddy.com
Google Domain
Total Savings
1 year$12.99$12.00-$0.99
2 years$17.98$24.00$6.02
3 years$32.97$36.00$3.03
4 years$47.96$48.00$0.04
5 years$62.95$60.00-$2.95

▶This makes it very cheap for people who usually buy 1 year for about $12. If you are planning to use your domain for more than 5 years, buy your domain on google. Google allows you to buy a domain for $12/year.

▶After you purchased your personal domain you need to set up DNS Recored.
There are total 6 Records that you need to add to your Record where you bought your domain.
If you bought your domain, go to Manage Domain page then  you will see add Host.

Click Manage (differs from where you bought your domain)



(I use Cloud Flare so my screen is different)

Add Host name @ and for IP address you need to type:
