Redefining Crazy Cat Lady One Day At A Time
How do you go about buying a site name? Are there different places where you have to shop around, or is there just one specific site/company/whatever that you can purchase them from?
You can purchase your domain name directly through Blogger in your blog settings. It's $10 for a year with private registration (which is really not a bad price) You blog will automatically forward to your new domain so you won't have to move anything like pictures or posts. This blog can still be accessed via http://cherrywanders.blogspot.com but it will automatically change the address to http://waywardpussyinn.com.Here's an information page from Blooger/ Google http://support.google.com/blogger/bin/static.py?hl=en&ts=1233381&page=ts.cs
Thanks so much! That seems pretty easy! I do have one more question that you might not know.Say you decide to ditch blogger and want to use wordpress, or do something totally different with waywardpussyinn.com. Since you bought it through blogger, are you stuck using blogger? Or are you free to make it something else?
Even though you are technically purchasing the domain directly from Google Apps the domain is actually supported by Go Daddy. You can port your domain to any other server you want. Once you buy it, you own it. Usually there's another charge to port the domain - you'll have to pay yearly fees (just like Google's $10/yr) unless you have your own server I suppose.
Thanks! I might just have to go ahead and get myself one!
Do you want your blog title to show up on rolls as "Wayward Pussy Inn" or "Cherry Wanders"?
