Due to many requests coming into Kang Rohman on how to custom domain in blogger or blogspot, in this post Kang Rohman try to write it down. What is a custom domain in blogger? that the purpose of a custom domain in blogger here is changing the blog address in blogger or blogspot to a domain name owned by yourself or with a Top Level Domain (TLD). Changing the address of the blogger or blogspot sub domain with the Top Level Domain (TLD) of course has advantages and shortcomings compared with the permanent use sub domains blogspot, here are some advantages blogger custom domain that you might consider:

 Show More Professional

Using your own domain name will usually be considered more professional than using a sub domain bloggers. This feeling is very necessary if your blog is a business blog even more so for an online shop or blog to sell goods or services, this will affect the level of trust from clients or customers.

readers a sense of doubt.

High Confidence Level

It is still closely connected with the above written. Blog with your own domain name will further gain trust than with a blog that still use the sub domain blogspot. Especially if you used to play in the business of selling links or paid review, top level domains will be easier to get a job than a sub domain page rank bloggers despite having the same. It is not absolute, but is one of the factors that support the sale of business success playing links.

Hosting Free From Blogger

One of the obstacles that feel heavy for a blog that already has a number of visits that many are hosting, the more visitors, the hosting fee that must be paid even greater. With Custom domain diblogger you do not have to worry about hosting fees because bloggers give it for free.

Please note that if you change the sub domain blogger with the domain you have, you keep in touch with the bloggers, everything will remain as before. Blog engine that you use keep using blogger engine, to set you still have to log into blogger, etc..

Relatively Safer

Still remember with Kang Rohman posted on blogs by bloggers removal cases. If at any time upon your case, do not be too worried and it's not the end of everything, to remember is always make backups of your blog data regularly. The next step is to create a new blog in blogger, then upload the backup data that has been held and a new blog will be posting the exact same content as the blog is deleted, and you just directing the blog with your domain before. All will return to normal, you will not lose your loyal visitors due to its domain name remains the same.

Another step is to eliminate the dependence of the bloggers with a way to buy your own hosting, then use the machine to other blogs that you like and stay in the migration away from blogger to your new blog engine.

Above are some advantages of a custom domain on blogger, of course, there are many more benefits that others, but for a little limiting for this post not too long then that's all written.

However, Kang Rohman suggests that the custom of this domain to a new blog only and not for long, why?
to a custom domain, your blog will become a new blog again. things like the number of subscriber, backlinks, Page Rank and so forth will be an all-new. However, if you do not make an issue tersebut.tentu no problem.
What is required to perform a custom domain? all you need is a domain name and DNS services. For some domain sellers, service control is provided free of charge so that you do not need to spend additional costs or using third party DNS service free so that you're not too busy.

How much for a domain? domain prices vary widely depending on your foresight in choosing a domain provider, but as an illustration only that the domain price ranges from Rp.70.000 up to 100,000 for the contract period for one year, or in other words with a capital of about 70rb until you will have a blog 100rb more professional in one year, and of course you can extend to next year.
