If you have a blog hosted on Google’s Blogspot service and have a domain, but aren’t ready to commit to a full-fledged hosting package just yet, or like Blogger, you can have your blog hosted by Google on your own domain. It is a service that I took advantage of since I got my own domain.

On the surface, it sounds a bit daunting to do it, but really, it is very simple. In fact, if you don’t have a domain name, Google offer the option to register a domain for $10. I’m not sure if this includes private registration, but I’m guessing it doesn’t, so I would recommend using a registrar like Godaddy where you can get a domain for around $9/year with private registration for $7 per year.

As a matter of fact, I registered with Godaddy and am very pleased with their service. It is easy to change the settings to suit your needs. I’d definitely recommend them. I will note here that the instructions I will give below are suited for you if you have registered with Godaddy. If you need to find the information for your particular registrar, Blogger have the instructions available here.
