What is Namecheap Custom Domain?
Namecheap.com is a popular web hosting service used by
millions of people, specifically, bloggers around the world. It is listed on
top 10 best web hosting providers. Many users of Blogger.com use Top Level Domain or Custom Domain to replace their blog address (yourblog.blogspot.com)
to make it look more professional and customized. Many of us, bloggers, have
difficulty in configuring custom
domain in Blogger that's why I created
this article to help everyone to easily setup their custom domain.
Domain names serve as 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. Domain names are formed by the rules and procedures of the Domain
Name System (DNS).
The advantage of buying a custom domain with
namecheap.com is that they are
accepting paypal payment even in the first purchase not like all other brands
out there. This is quite convenient to those who are new to buying custom
domain or chosen domain. If you already bought a custom domain from Godaddy you may visit my other tutorial about setting up of custom
domain for godaddy.com here.
