Free Blog on Your Own Domain with Free Email Hosting Part 1

Finally I buy paid hosting for my rasyid.net domain and I got free .info domain for 1 year.

Now I’m waiting for transfer domain process and I just think about using my domain rasyid.info for blogging too šŸ˜‰

I’ll start this blog (rasyid.info) from scratch and host it in blogspot.

At the end of this process I get :

1. Blogspot blog with my own domain ( http://www.rasyid.info)

2. My own email [email protected], will be host by google using google apps ( free version)

I consider it as ‘from zero to one’ process, so I’ll make it as series, might be usefull for anyone who want to start blogging with his/her own domain.

1. Setting dns at domain registrar and register for account in mydomain.com .

2. Register account at blogspot and configure blogpot to use my domain as url address.

ns1.mydomain.com

ns2.mydomain.com

ns3.mydomain.com

ns4.mydomain.com

Input this data to my domain control panel :
