Bigrock Domain Customization with Blogger


Tip Abstraction:
        This tutorial describes how to customize your blogger blogspot domain into to a top level domain with Bigrock domain manager.

        Of the millions of websites, most are blogs provided by sites like Wordpress, Blogger, etc. Blogs are also websites but they are personal websites. But if you make a free blog in Blogger or in Wordpress, your domain will be like a sub domain. Example: www.mydomain.blogspot.com, www.mydomain.wordpress.com etc. But if you buy a top level domain, it is difficult to identify a site is a blog or a normal website. It is simple and easy to get a custom top level domain. If you register for a top level domain, then your blog address become www.mydomain.com (according to registration) instead of www.mydomain.blogspot.com.
