      I think its outside the context of hubpages.

        Do you mean we should not answer questions that are not directly related to HP?

            There's no rule that says people can't ask non-HP related questions on the forums.  Many of us have used HubPages as a springboard to other internet ventures and we can all help each other out with that.

            I did. And you tried to shut him up. At the same time proclaiming your entitlement to an answer to your own question on another thread. A bit hypocritical, don't you think? smile

      No.  Sign up for hosting with someone like Hostgator.

        Actually it sort of will. I am experimenting with it right now. It seems to work, at least when I bought a domain through them, however it does not redirect the old blog (as it is supposed to do), and this sucks royally, along with non-existing customer support. smile

      I think that you are asking if you can connect a domain name to your blog which is hosted at blogger.com

      The answer is yes. Most domain registrars have the capability where you can connect your domain name to any website in the world -  including your blog at blogger.com

      Instructions to make this connection should be available from your domain name provider.

      Do you mean, if you have bought a domain name, can you use your domain name on blogger so that it reads your personal domain name in the address bar?

      Yes.  Yes you can.  Go to your blogger settings, under publishing there is a link that says "custom domains". 

      If you already purchased your domain name, look to the right for a link that says, "switch to advanced settings."

      You can learn from there. smile 

      What it will do is redirect your blogger address to your custom address but it will still be the same page. wink

        Thank you very much, will it help me?

          Yes, it will help you.

          You have had everything explained to you in the simplest possible terms. Now it's time for YOU to do something.

          There's nothing else that you need to know to connect a domain name to your blogger blog.

          What have you DONE with this advice?
          Have you bought a domain name?
          Have you done what you have been advised to do?

          Honestly, sometimes I really wonder why we bother.

    Thank you very much all the respected hubbers for your answers.

    Some from you have clear my point and many from you just use this thread as debating point to show your presence, how active you are in forum.

    You can connect your newly purchased domain to a blogspot account by updating the nameservers through your registrar.

    i was actually revamping an old blogspot site yesterday one in which I just had forwarded the domain to the blogpost site, and i discovered this.

    OP, ask anything you want!
