What Is a Custom Domain?

Domain names serve as a unique identifier on the internet that classifies Internet Protocol (IP).  For websites, they act as an address or a location as well as a tool for naming and branding a company’s internet identity. If you have this one, you will be identified easier together with the products that you sell and services that offer. This could also be an identity for those who would like to write good contents and share to tons of readers online. With domain names, you will surely be discovered. Domain names are formed by the rules and procedures of the Domain Name System (DNS).

The best thing to do is customizing your domain name. This is a very good way for you to be able to maximize your identity online. A well –customized domain can be used for several purposes and can gain higher favor from search engines.

Custom Domain Names can be searched and purchased on domain registrars such as godaddy.com, for more information about setting up a domain name, refer to Set Up a Custom Domain.   If you already bought a custom domain from Namecheap you may visit my other tutorial about setting up of custom domain for namecheap.com here.


Godaddy Custom Domain Setup on Blogger Blog
For example:
from theblogservices.blogspot.com to theblogservices.net
When you purchase a domain from Godaddy.com, they assign an IP address (A record and CNAME record) for the domain. Hence, you need to change those records to point to your Blogger.com blog. This post can help you to change the A and CNAME records of your Godaddy account.

Follow the steps given below to set up Godaddy Custom Domain for Blogs:

1. Login to your Godaddy account and click on the My Account tab.
