How to Redirect your Blogger blog to your Custom Domain bought at GoDaddy

I bought another domain and this time I wanted to try Go Daddy’s service as my domain host so I signed up to them. I have no clue on how to redirect my blogger at Go Daddy since my other blogs are hosted by 1and1.com.

Anyway, I sought the help of my friend Mai, and she gave me a tutorial from Joy . Here’ s the tutorial which I have re-written and have added some few notes and print screen because I myself got lost in the last few steps.

Here is the tutorial on How to Redirect your Blogger blog to your Custom Domain bought at GoDaddy

1. Login to your GoDaddy acct. Go to your Domain Manager select the domain (put a check) that you will be redirecting. (Be patient Godaddy sometimes loads a bit slow)
