Blogger domain name (2 posts)

    I started a blog using Blogger about 2 months. I purchased a domain name with Blogger also, not thinking that I may want to move my blog. I use WordPress for another blog/website and because of the flexibility I want to move my Blogger site over to wordpress. The only thing is I would like to keep my domain name. Is it a pain to transfer? Should I just use another domain name? It would probably be a lot easier to just use another domain name.

  2. You can keep your domain :)
    From http://webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/19171/how-to-transfer-domain-registered-through-blogger-to-a-new-registrar:

    Blogger is not a domain registrar. When you signed up, you should have received an e-mail from Google Apps detailing whether the domain was registered through eNom or GoDaddy (the registrar partners used for domain registrations).

    If you don't not have the domain purchase confirmation e-mail, the DNS settings may be completed by observing the following process:

    Log in to Google Apps using Blogger domain name, username, and password

    Go to Domain Settings > Domain Names > Advanced DNS Settings to find the eNom/GoDaddy account information for the domain

    Log in at eNom or GoDaddy to complete any desired changes

    Not tested: Instructions culled from Blogger Help and The Blog Doctor (oddly enough, this process does not appear to be described in detail at the Blogger Help site).
