Free Domain For Personal Use: co.cc + blogspot.com

Finally, I have registered the so-called free domain (http://xaivierchia.co.cc) for xaivierblog.blogspot.com. However, this free domain is only for personal instead of commercial, which will be charged a renewal fee of $3 annually. Besides, everyone (personal user) only got two free domains. After register this domain, you are required to set up it in 48 hours. If not, it will be canceled.

With this free domain, I set up a URL Forwarding in such a way that everyone can reach my blog via my new domain, http://xaivierchia.co.cc. Besides, you can hidden your real URL and displace it with the new domain. However, I do not think it is a good idea since visitors may not be able to copy or record the real URL for further review. This service (URL Forwarding) will function immediately after the set up is completed. Therefore, next time, you can just give your friend your new domain.

Besides, you also can replace entire URL with the free domain. However, you need to wait up to 48 hours. This is because it takes about two days for the CNAME changes to propagate over the Internet. Next, as Blogger.com promises, "We won't leave your readers behind!
http://xaivierchia.blogspot.com will redirect to your custom domain.", all your previous URL will automatically forward to the new domain. Nevertheless, I simply like to use my blogspot.com instead of .co.cc.

How to set up?
A very clear and straight forward instruction is available in https://www.co.cc/blogger/blogger.php. All you need to do is just follow the procedure. Lastly, do visit the sources stated in below if you are interested to own one or two free domains for your blog. That's all for today. More fascinating articles and sharing will be updated from time to time in Xaivier Blog. So, you are welcome to subscribe our feed, look at our sitemap or simply visit our Homepage.
