How To Link GoDaddy Registrar's Domain With Blogger?

Rating: 3 votes, 1.00 average.
We have obviously heard about Blogger. It is a weblog publishing tool of Google. Most of the Professional bloggers in the world use wordpress installed in a Host server and link a domain ( .com, .net, .org etc) with it. But those who use Blogger platform for publishing their blog post use their blogging id prefixed with the Blogger domain (i.e xyz.blogspot.com). If you want to link a domain of your own with blogger then you need to follow certain steps for the needed setup. As an example, I am selecting GoDaddy Domain Registrar and a .com domain namely, mybloggingdomain.com. The reason behind the selection is Godaddy.com is world's number 1 domain registrar and .com is the most popular and commercially accepted top level domain extension.Assuming that you have already purchased a .com domain from godaddy.com, following are the steps for linking a custom domain with your blogger blog:

i) login to your Godaddy account and navigate to MyAccount Section.
