Still Using .blogspot.com Address for Your Blog? See Why It is Risky

If you’ve set up a custom domain for your Blogger blog and Blogger deletes your blog, you can move your blog to WordPress and your readers will still find you whether you backed up your posts or not. If you have an up-to-date back up of your Blogger posts, your readers will be able to access all your posts after you move on to WordPress.

If you don’t have a back up of your Blogger posts, that means you will have to start publishing new posts after moving to WordPress but your readers will still be able to find you.

custom domain

This is not the case if you don’t have a custom domain and Blogger deletes your blog.

If you are using .blogspot address and Blogger deletes your blog, you will have to use a new web address if you decide to move to WordPress.  You cannot use .blogspot address on WordPress and Blogger will not even allow you to set up a new Blogger blog with the .blogspot address of the deleted blog.

This means your blog readers will not be able to find you as they will keep seeing “Blog Not Found” anytime they visit your blog till Blogger re-instates the blog.  What if Blogger decides not to restore your blog?

So, if you are still using .blogspot.com address, is it not wise for you to to change to .com today?

  1. Yes, very risky. I wonder what becomes of a blog like Linda Ikeji that is still using .blogspot address if Blogger deletes it and fails to restore it.

    • Lindaikeji.net is just a redirect to blogspot and does not actually host her blog contents. In fact, it could be the best option for any blogger under Google using the custom domain to migrate to WordPress and remove the Blogger custom domain back to its original
