How to Setup Custom 1AND1.com Domain in Blogger

There are many free server you can connect your 1and1.com domain with. However I'll suggest you use blogger.com because it's the simplest and easiest to configure. I would have suggest WordPress but the cost of mapping it worth 10X the amount we secure your domain, they map at $13.

Crazy, isn't?  I think so.

When I promised you will start a blog with only $1.17, and you've probably pay cafe charges out of the budget.

Hey Friday, jokes out!

You may have heard of 000webhost free web hosting plan and, perhaps, you are already cooking the idea of linking your domain to their server. But I am sorry you are cooking up your web death.

Don't feel puzzled. I did the same when I first heard of it in a cheat sheet.

I used it for the past few weeks but the limitation I faced were worse more than blogging on the Blogger platform. Hence, I restore my verdict for blogger.

If you are ready to venture into blogger, let do it quick.

Create A Blogger Blog

Before we can possibly map your domain, you first need a free Blogger account. In case you never have one, you also really need a google mail account for this pursuit.

If you already own a Google Mail account, kindly log in with your Firefox or Chrome.

Next, pick on your address box and shot the address www.blogger.com and you are a step to create your sub-domain blog. You will see a page like this.
