Note: This post now also pertains to the new Blogger Beta. It is now safe to change over to the new version of Blogger. FTP functionality is now supported, although you won’t enjoy all of the new features of Blogger.
Update: I have now posted some video tutorials on how to set up WordPress on your own domain. If you are willing to take a look at WordPress as an alternative to Blogger, check them out, otherwise these instructions should get you all set up.
This post is related to Hosting Blogger On Your Own Domain. so follow step by step as discussed below
Step 1 – Buy your domain name
The first thing to do is to buy your domain name. I suggest using a registrar that is separate from your hosting account. If you don't have a Domain name Click here to register a one(For Us $10/yr). for a free domain name you can also use CO.CC, .TK or any other free Domain name TLD
Step 2 – Get a hosting account
Next, you need to get a hosting account. Click here to purchase web hosting. i preffer to buy hosting from host in Pakistan.com, hostinpakistan.com offers reliable and affordable hosting plans with tons of Great Unlimited features. They also offer a ton of storage and bandwidth, and have great customer support.
If you bought your domain separately from your hosting account, you need to set up your DNS. Otherwise, move on to Step 3. Also, if when purchasing your domain, you were asked to specify your primary domain, and set that up during the sign-up proces, move to Step 3.
It will be better to purchase both domain and hosting from hostinpakistan.com. they will setup your domain and hosting both for FREE.
if you have purchase domain or hosting from any one else, please ask hostinpakistan.com's support to setup domain name servers.
Step 3 – Set up an FTP account
Set up your FTP account. FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol which is the way Blogger publishes your blog to your hosted account.
From your cPanel (http://yourdomainname.com/cpanel), click on ‘FTP Manager’. On the next screen, click “FTP Accounts.” You can now create a new account which will be used by blogger to publish your blog by clicking “Add FTP Account.”
Make sure you specify the correct directory that you want your blog to be published to. For example, if you want your blog to be located at http://youraccount.com/blog/, then the path would most likely be /home/acc_name/public_html/blog/, unless you are using an addon domain, in which case it would be located at /home/acc_name/public_html/addon-domain-name/blog/.
Step 4 – Get a Blogger Account
Now, you’ll need a Blogger account. This is a pretty easy and painless step. Just follow their directions.
Step 5 – Connect Blogger to your FTP Account
The last thing you’ll need to do is connect Blogger to your ftp account. Once you are signed into your Blogger account, go into your blog’s admin panel, click on the ‘Settings’ tab, and then on the ‘Publishing’ sub-tab. From there, click on the “Switch to FTP” link.
From here, just fill in the information according to how you set it up in the hosting cPanel. Note: the FTP Server will be ftp.yourdomain.com. Your FTP path should be left blank if you set up the ftp account correctly. The username should be in email@example.com format.
Hope this helps. With all that said, I use WordPress now for my blogging, which if you bought a hosting account through Host in Pakistan,
