Benefits of Custom Domain Name in BlogSpot Blog

Most bloggers use the Blogspot.com platform to start their own blog. It is inevitable for you to question why we should do custom domain and what benefits are there for your blog.

The main reason for using Blogspot or Blogger is because it is free and you do not need much technical knowledge for it. 

Not like Wordpress nor you need to worry about hosting and neither of the bandwidth. But the free domain you get in it comes with the .blogspot subdomain that you can replace by replacing custom domain.

What is a Custom Domain?

In Blogspot, you get a domain like this, www.blogname.blogspot.com

This kind of domain name makes your blog unprofessional and users do not trust these sites too much.

Instead, you can buy a top-level domain and add it to your blog such as,techonplus.com or techonplus.org or techonplus.in etc. This is called a custom domain name.

If you are still using the .blogspot subdomain then you should definitely read this post because here I have mentioned the need for a custom domain.


It is easy to remember the custom domain and tell it to anyone, than any subdomain. A subdomain is a bit longer and complicated too, due to which it is difficult to remember and search from it.

Looks Professional

As I have said before, Blogspot free domain users feel unprofessional and people do not trust it. Due to being free, such blogs can be closed at any time and information given in it may also be spam.

Your blog seems genuine with the custom domain and people also trust the information given in it. This way your blog looks like a self-hosted Wordpress blog.

Social Media

We use social media to promote our blog and to get more traffic. Most people do not like a Blogspot subdomain and ignore such a link, due to which social media gets less traffic from your social media.

That's why you use a custom domain in your blog so that people will love your site and trust.


You can create a brand of your blog from the custom domain. Good logo for your blog, favicon can develop a different identity and authority. Nobody likes to search any blog with a subdomain.


Custom domain is best for Search Engine Optimization. Google, Bing, Yahoo custom domain like Search Engine gives more priority and helps it rank quickly. This makes your blog SEO friendly so that the rank is good, Alexa rank is also good.


The Adsense account is more likely to be approved from the Custom domain and the Adsense account you get from this will be a non-hosted account, meaning that you can monetize as many blogs as you want from that Adsense account without approval.

Different Advertising source

Most advertising services do not give much importance to a subdomain and do not approve of that type of blog. 

If there is no Adsense approval in your blog then there are many other advertising companies that can make money by applying it to their blog. But 90% of those companies only approve the custom domain.

Easy to move another hosting

Having a domain of yours, you can easily transfer your blog to any other hosting. If you want a professional blog then Wordpress is the best platform, as I told in my previous article. 

So if you ever migrate from Blogspot to Wordpress, then it will be easy for you if you have a custom domain. 

I would suggest you if you have a blog on Blogspot or are thinking of creating a blog, then you must use a custom domain. I have discussed this why it is better for the custom domain Blogspot blog and its benefits.
