Remove .blogspot from url
« on: July 23, 2011, 11:42:56 PM »
1. Lets say you have have a blog names xyz.blogspot.com and you want it to be http://www.xyz.com
2. First thing to do is to register a domain http://www.xyz.com with any webhosting company. There are thousands available online.
3. Very important thing. Register the domain with the provider who gives the domain forwarding facility free. There are many of them who are doing this.
4. Once the domain is registerd just login in your control panel (this will be provided by the company through whom you have registerd the domain).
5. Go to domain forwarding settings and put your blog address xyz.blogspot.com there.
6. Activate URL Masking. (this is very important)
7. Now what happens is when someone puts http://www.xyz.com in browser the domain forwading settings will forward the requestion xyz.blogspot.com
8. Now URL Masking comes in the picture as when user reaches to your blog xyz.blogspot.com he wont see this address in the browser. instead he will see http://www.xyz.com bcoz of the url masking feature.
9. one live example is my blog boozegyaan.blogspot.com for which i have registerd the domain http://www.boozegyaan.com
10. when someone types http://www.boozegyaan.com he reaches to my blog boozegyaan.blogspot.com but he see http://www.boozegyaan.com in the address bar.

Good tutorial :) But I'd rather recommend a .tk domain as it is free :)

I use "Smartdots.com"

AS of now.. I have websites using them. (You also get the favicon option)

So for example, your website could be

"MyWebsite.net.tc" instead of "MyWebsite.blogspot.com"


There are many other options besides ".net.tc' though.

.TK websites are only good if you need a redirect website, .com is more for HTML websites :)

Yes, just try the .tk, it just masks the .blogspot. It is really easy to use and it is totally free :)

Yeah, I've got .tk paid account, but free is good enough if you're not using it for commerical reasons (or dont mind an ad or two). CJB.net used to be good too, but haven't tested it out in a few years.
