Whenever we start our Blogger journey, most of us pick blogspot.com as it is free and our investment is zero.
This is always a safe way to start, but as a starter who is looking forward to have it as a career, this is a huge mistake.
No doubt, self hosting is the best options for those who are looking forward to continue as a profession or hobby in the future.
Benefits of having a custom domain:
- You have a good exposure in search engines, which often like to index domains rather than sub domains like blogspot.com.
- You can also increase your chances of getting an approval for your Adsense account.
- You can publicize your domain name with ease rather than saying a long domain with blogspot.com or WordPress.com in the end.
- More over, you will have a brand name from day one.
Here I'm going to make you a custom domain which has '.tk ' to the end of the url, by cutting off the long tail.
And teach you how to renew it.
All of them for just 5 USD.
