Generally who is not aware about it thay are simply search on search engine like “How to remove .blogspot or .wordpress for blog url?” It is basically known as to pin your blogger or wordpress blog to Domain providers (Converting Sub domain into Custom Domain ). For that purpose we have to pay some amount to them which is on yearly bases there are many cheaper domain provider are there which is usually affordable price hardly 10$/year or If you are Indian than it is cheaper than it.
