How to Setup Free Domain in Blogger…

If you are regular reader of this site then you might have read the post that I had published afterAdding Custom Domain in This Site. Actually adding custom domain is very important in a site/blog hosted on free platform like Blogger and WordPress. Earlier I had shown  how to add custom domain in Blogger from Godaddy. But today’s post is something special, because in this post I am gonna show how you can add a Free domain to your Blogger blog.
The domain that I’m talking about is Dot TK domain. This domain is powered by FreeNom and it is completely free of cost for 1 to 12 months. Beside Dot TK domain FreeNom provide a few more free domain name. But Dot TK is most popular one. Below I’m presenting the list of free domain provided by FreeNom…
  • .TK
  • .ML
  • .GA
  • .CF
  • .GQ
It is always better to use a top level domain for a site. But as you all know to have a domain like.COM , .NET or .ORG you will have to pay yearly charge. I pay 16$ for the domain of this site -yearly . So, if you want to add custom domain without spending money then why don’t you try Free Domain. As using custom domain is very important – So, this Free Domain is like Something is Better then Nothing.
By the way don’t worry about the domain quality. The domain provided by FreeNom is very good in quality like any other top level domain. Recently I have tested .TK domain on one of my Blog – And I have found this domain very convincing. 
Now Let’s see how to Register a Free domain on FreeNom and Add it to Blogger Blog.
