    I have a blog at blogspot.com, it is my money page.. i made it 2 years back and i am making $200/month from it. now i thought of moving it to a custom domain name for SEO purpose (& applying to CPA Network.. two birds with 1 arrow :p), this is what they say...
    Code:
    Domains are registered through a Google partner and cost $10 (USD) for one year. As part of registration, you will also get a [URL="http://www.google.com/a/?hl=en"]Google Apps[/URL] account for your new domain.
    I am planning to buy domain from them, it says $10 for year, but i don't see any details about hosting.
    Can somebody tell me if i purchase domain from them do i still get hosting from them or I have to get hosting for myself. ( I feel dizzy thinking about hosting and name server etc... I am totally non-techie)
    Code:
    [B]Hint:[/B] If you want to publish to an external FTP server, you will need to  [URL="http://www.blogger.com/blog-permissions.g?blogID=4387223821726786161"]Set 'Blog Readers' to 'Anybody'[/URL] and use a  [URL="http://www.blogger.com/html?blogID=4387223821726786161"]Classic Template[/URL].
    and Google Apps is free or I have to pay for it.. I guess I will have a custom email address( Which I can use to apply for CPA Network)... because if we purchase domain from name .com we get Google Apps free right.

    Please provide your views & experiences...

    Help appreciated in advance...

    you will keep you blog in there the same way. and google apps is free, even name.com offers you google apps when you register a domain trough them. what google does is kinda like what WP.com does, you buy the domain and they redirect it to your WP.com blog. but i guess you would be better mailing blogger support and asking those questions than coming to this forum.

    I just thought someone here would have done something similar... so I asked here, am sure there would be many people who have experienced something,
    I am sure someone will come up.

    Click there and you can use a cheaper domain from godaddy, namecheap, or wherever else.
