>Register your domain name directly from Blogger

>Google is indeed offering domain name registration through Blogger. Actually the domains are registered with either eNom or GoDaddy who have partnered with Google, and they cost only US $10. To register your domain name for your Blogger blog, go to your blog’s Settings from your Dashboard. Click on Publishing from the settings menu then choose “Switch to: Custom Domain “. There, you’ll be able to check for the availability of your desired domain name and eventually buy it. If you already own a domain name that you want to use with your blog use the Advance Settings.

You might think that US $10 for a domain name is not a good deal but consider what you get for the price:

  • 1 year custom domain name registration
  • private registration to protect your personal information (a US $9 value)

Once you’ve bought the domain, Google will configure everything for you so your shiny new domain will work instantly with your blog. Moreover, you’ll be able to use all of the services available through Google Apps and have full control of you domain settings which will allow you to use your domain for other services not provided by Google.

I guess the people at Google are reading my blog(!)
