Some days ago i have written a post about How to create a free blog from blogger.com. After you create a free blog you will get your blog name with sub domain blogspot.com, which doesn't look so much professional.So if you want to achieve success in blogging i recommend you to buy your own custom domain name.
What Is Domain Name?
According to Wikipedia: A domain name is an identification string that defines a realm of administrative autonomy, authority, or control in the Internet. Domain names are formed by the rules and procedures of the Domain Name System(DNS). To know more about domain name visit Wikipedia.
Why It Is Important In Blogging?
At first i had also used a sub domain http://www.gulmiresunga.blogspot.com. Though i use to write a fresh and unique post it was very hard for me to attract a visitors with sub domain blogspot.com. No visitors used to comment on my post.No body used to subscribe to my blog.So i decided to buy my own custom domain name http://www.gulmiresunga.com. After i bought my own domain name then i got lots of change on my blog. Visitors began to increase, they started to comment and subscribe on my blog. And my blog was also awarded PR 1 by Google.And most important ,if you are using sub domain than your blog can be closed by blogger.com at any time but if you have your own domain name then you will totally get control of your blog on your hand. So I recommend you to get your own domain name.
How Much Does It Cost?
It does not cost much. Just $10 of one year.I think it is very cheap rate.And to host your blog you can use Blogger.com which is totally free of cost. So don't think too much.Get you own domain name ASAP.
How To Get It?
- Go to Blogger>Settings>Publishing
- Choose Custom Domain option
- On a box provided there type a desire domain name (that should be unique) and click CHECK AVAILABILITY option.
- After that you will be proceed to payment option.
If you are not able to buy your domain name through this process then you can Google for it.You will find many such offices that helps to register your domain name in cheap rate.
Hope this post will be useful to you :)
