Domain Masking for Free Blogs
January 19th, 2010 | Posted by Pin

If you’ve ever come across a corporate blog with an address like companyname.blogspot.com, your first impression might be that it’s way too casual or even unprofessional. But, if you have a professional blog hosted on one of those services, how do you overcome it? Well, first of all, you’ve got to register a domain name for yourself, eg. companyname.com; and now, for the fun part – the tweak!

Ask your service provider to mask or cloak the website address so that no matter where your visitor clicks within the page to navigate, it will still show your domain name: www.companyname.com. It’s really easy, and you only have to pay RM55 a year for the domain name. That’s it.

Now you’ve got to choose wisely between the Content Management Systems. Let’s look at the two most popular blog platforms, Blogger and WordPress. Blogger (aka Blogspot) doesn’t charge you when you’re pointing to your registered domain name, whereas WordPress may charge you USD$9.97 per year, per domain for its domain mapping service.

For blogger (aka Blogspot)
1. Go to www.blogger.com and login
2. Click the tab above Settings > Publishing
3. Switch to “custom domain”
4. Enter your domain name

For WordPress
1. Go to username.wordpress.com/wp-admin and login
2. Click the tab Settings > Domains
3. Enter your domain URL
